Corporate History

 

AsterionDB has accomplished what no other company has – we have merged the storage of structured and unstructured data and all of the logic required to work on that data within a unified platform – the relational database. We use the Oracle database to store any type of user data file that would otherwise be stored in the file system or a more modern unstructured database.

What we are able to do is move all of your data files out of the directories and into the database. We then keyword/tag your ‘objects’ allowing you to query and retrieve your data files. Instead of the rather limited ability that exists in the traditional file system you now get a much richer environment to describe your data – making it easier to catalog and retrieve information.

 

An all-encompassing architecture that can – at once – manage structured and unstructured data seamlessly while at the same time encapsulate all logic required to operate upon that data.

The net result is:

  • Incredible simplification of systems
  • Reduced component count
  • Less hardware
  • Increased security
  • Simplified backup and restore procedures
  • Decreased auditing requirements
  • Easier patching
  • Happy programmers (probably the most important thing)
  • Happy administrators (probably the next most important thing)
