Kognito to produce WX2 database for Solaris

Kognitio will develop, release and support a version of its WX2 analytical Relational Database Management System (RDBMS) that runs on the open source Solaris Operating System (OS).

Kognitio’s WX2 technology on the Solaris 10 OS is scheduled to ship in the latter half of 2008 and on OpenSolaris early next calendar year. The announcement was made at the start of the Gartner Business Intelligence summit being held in Chicago, where Kognitio is a participating vendor.

‘We are pleased that Kognitio has chosen to offer availability of its WX2 analytical database on the open source Solaris OS,’ said Juan Carlos Soto, vice president, global market development for Sun Microsystems. ‘Users can now better leverage WX2's power across many of the industry's leading business intelligence software tools available on Sun blades and rack-mounted servers. Ultimately, this gives the BI/DW marketplace more choice to effectively implement data warehouses.’

Kognitio WX2 is an analytical database technology, capable of helping mid-sized and large enterprises gain analytical access to, and insight from, massive amounts of data, thus allowing them to remain ahead of their competitors.
