Aster Data introduces SAS/ACCESS interface engine for data application server

Combines Aster Data's data management with SAS's data integration and analytics capabilities

By CBR Staff Writer

Aster Data, a provider of data processing and data management platform for big data applications, has released a SAS/ACCESS interface engine for Aster Data nCluster, a data application server which is a massively parallel processing (MPP) data warehouse and analytics offering for big data.

The SAS/ACCESS interface is one element of a partnership with SAS which strengthens interoperability by providing direct, native connectivity between SAS and Aster Data’s nCluster that provides SAS users with the ability to leverage Aster Data’s SQL-MapReduce for analytics on big data.

The company said that the SAS/ACCESS combines Aster Data’s data management with SAS’s data quality, data integration and analytics to enable business analysts to unlock more intelligence from their data.

According to Aster Data, the SAS/ACCESS interface for nCluster includes capabilities such as optimised bulk-loading of data through the nCluster for access to large data sets and the ability to natively access SQL-MapReduce from within a SAS session. Both capabilities accelerate data access and maximise performance for large-scale analytics.
