Run analytics on your data in the warehouse where it resides and eliminate the time, cost and risk associated with copying data out of the warehouse to analyze it. The system is designed for delivering insights to business operations for real-time decision-making.
Adaptive data compression is automatically configured on the system. It compresses the database by rows and leaves the data in compressed format until it is needed, which helps to improve the performance of the core warehouse and reduce overall storage requirements.
