EXASolution by Exasol

EXASolution is specifically engineered and architected to deliver unprecedented analytic performance with no limits on your data. EXASolution achieves lighting fast performance with linear scalability by combining in-memory technology, columnar compression and storage, and massively parallel processing.  Not only is EXASolution the world’s fastest database according to TPC-H Benchmarks, its standard SQL interfaces also means avoiding the trap of NoSQL skilling shortages and easy compatibility with pre-existing applications and data structures.  


  • In-memory technology
    Innovative in-memory algorithms enable large amounts of data to be processed in main memory for dramatically faster access times.

  • Column-based storage and compression
    Columnar storage and compression reduces the number of I/O operations and amount of data needed for processing in main memory.

  • Massively Parallel Processing
    EXASolution was developed as a parallel system based on a shared nothing architecture. Queries are distributed across all nodes in a cluster using special parallel algorithms that process data locally in each node’s main memory.

  • High user concurrency
    Thousands of users can simultaneously access and analyze big data without compromising query performance, making it an ideal solution for data as a service providers.

  • Scalability
    Linear scalability lets you to extend your system and increase performance by adding additional nodes.

  • Tuning-free database
    Intelligent algorithms continuously monitor usage and perform self-tuning, optimizing system performance and minimizing administrative work. 

  • Industry-standard interfaces
    Leverage your favorite SQL-based BI and data integration tools via EXASOL support for ODBC, JDBC, MDX, and ADO.net.
