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)
