TransLattice announces the availability of the release candidate for Postgres-XL, an open source, clustered, parallel SQL database designed for both OLTP and Big Data analytics.
The key capabilities of Postgres-XL include OLTP write scalability, massive parallel processing (MPP), cluster-wide ACID (atomicity, consistency, isolation, durability) properties and multi-tenant security.
Open access to Postgres-XL further extends the open source PostgreSQL ecosystem and offers additional choices to the community.
Postgres-XL is based on StormDB, the commercial product acquired by TransLattice in 2013. TransLattice will continue to actively contribute to Postgres-XL.
