MILPITAS, Calif., Dec. 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Esgyn Corporation released EsgynDB 2.0, a Big Data database on Apache Hadoop®, to enable enterprises to run operational applications concurrent with real-time analytics.  Built on Apache Trafodion, EsgynDB is the first SQL database to enable enterprises to move mission-critical operational workloads to Hadoop with rock solid ACID protection of their operational data.  Enterprises require protection across data centers to scale beyond a cluster and ensure full disaster recovery.  EsgynDB updates this data synchronously across data centers to guarantee that you never lose a single transaction.

EsgynDB delivers:

  • Rich ANSI SQL capabilities with sophisticated query optimization
  • Active-active multi-data center transaction synchronization and failover
  • True distributed multi-table, multi-node transaction management
  • Queries and table joins across Trafodion, Apache HBase™, and Apache Hive™ tables
  • Linear scalability and performance for Big Data solutions

It also includes EsgynDB Manager for system and performance monitoring, workload visibility and control, health checks, and live and historical analysis of key metrics.

EsgynDB has been certified on Cloudera CDH and is in the process of being certified on the latest version of Hortonworks HDP, and also supports Apache Hadoop. It has been adopted by customers worldwide, including Webroot®, provider of intelligent cybersecurity for endpoints and collective threat intelligence, and Chinese online music service Kuwo. Esgyn has also been in strategic collaboration with global human resources, benefits and business process outsourcing provider ADP®.

"EsgynDB makes it faster for Kuwo to perform analysis with richer content, getting insights into current and long term trends, helping us provide more personalized popular music and digital entertainment, and enabling value-added business innovations with our partners," said Kuwo's IT business leader Mr. Xie Yingwu.

ADP has been actively involved in the design and development of the new solution. ADP, which houses a very large database of over 630,000 clients and 35 million employees globally, is working with Esgyn to develop advanced features and capabilities for EsgynDB 2.0. This collaboration is part of ADP's ongoing commitment to developing and employing state-of-the-art Big Data technologies in new solutions serving employers of all sizes.  "Leveraging these capabilities in new applications will enable ADP to help our clients increase efficiencies in managing their HR processes and other workforce functions," said Haifeng Li, Chief Data Scientist at ADP.
