Embeddable nano database, Actian Zen, released to help power more powerful IoT applications.

Actian, a hybrid data management, analytics and integration company, has released Actian Zen Embedded database, a multiplatform, embeddable database for developers delivering applications to self-managed, small footprint environments. Actian Zen is suited to meet the needs of software developers and data-driven device manufacturers delivering IoT applications.
Applications operating in zero management IT environments have distinctly different database requirements than those seen in the typical enterprise datacenter. These databases run, sometimes for years, without any intervention and are often embedded in the application with installation and operation fully automated and hidden from the end user. These use cases require extreme database reliability, modularity and scalability throughout the life of the product. The stakes are high for the software vendor since thousands of copies of their applications are in use, often on a global basis, so even a minor increase in customer support issues could quickly swamp a support organization and obliterate profit margins.
“Actian Zen Embedded database has been the choice of leading developers and device manufacturers, enabling them to deliver data-driven applications with rock-solid reliability to millions of users,” said Rohit De Souza, CEO of Actian. “Developers are looking for a database that is modular, scalable and reliable that can handle the additional data demand driven by today's demanding IoT applications. Together with Actian’s comprehensive cloud, integration and analytics capabilities, we are perfectly positioned to help forward-thinking organizations activate their data across the enterprise - from the device to the cloud and back.”

Key features:

- modular, nano footprint solution supporting both SQL and NoSQL access methods
- customizable installation
- easy upgrades
- seamless backward compatibility
- minimal memory requirements
- low support requirements that allow developers to deliver applications to customers without getting buried by support costs or reliability issues.

Other features continue Actian’s software-focused tradition, including a next generation client cache reporting engine that enables the offloading of high volume reporting functions from production systems. An enhanced C++ API simplifies access to the their database’s internals and significantly expands the pool of developers capable of building the next business-critical application on Actian Zen.
