Aqua Data Studio Gets Better at Big Data
May 14, 2013 Alex Woodie
Programmers and analysts who use the newly released Aqua Data Studio version 13 from AquaFold will be able to work with large data sets housed in specialty databases, including Hewlett-Packard‘s Vertica and EMC‘s Greenplum.
Aqua Data Studio is a Java-based utility designed to provide programmers, database developers, and systems administrators with a single interface to work with multiple databases, including Oracle, SQL Server, DB2 for i, DB2 for z/OS, Sybase, MySQL and others. The software helps users administer, explore, and query their databases; create SQL scripts; explore entity relationships; conduct comparisons between files, directory structures, and database schemas; and import and export data.
Version 13 adds native support for Vertica and Greenplum, which are used to house and organize big data sets. “Our customers have data that is growing massively in size, requiring the use of specialized databases like Greenplum and Vertica that can store and quickly retrieve content from petabytes of records,” says AquaFold’s CEO Niels Gron in a press release. “This version of Aqua Data Studio adds even more big data support to our users’ database toolbox.”
The new version also includes native support for SQLite, a mini database that can be embedded in Android devices. This will provide Aqua Data Studio users the capability to build custom database apps that give workers access to small subsets of their main databases while on the go.
Aqua Data Studio 13 is available now in 21 languages. Licenses start at $499 per user, unchanged from version 12. For more info, see www.aquafold.com.
