Detailed Description

Update

Aster Data is a proven leader in big data management and big data analysis for data-driven applications.

Aster Data's nCluster is the first MPP data warehouse architecture that allows applications to be fully embedded within the database engine to enable ultra-fast, deep analysis of massive data sets.

Aster Data's unique "applications-within™" approach allows application logic to exist and execute with the data itself. Termed a "Massively Parallel Data-Application Server," Aster Data's solution effectively uses Aster's patent-pending SQL-MapReduce with parallelized data processing and applications to address the big data challenge.

Companies using Aster Data include Coremetrics, MySpace, Akamai, ShareThis, and Full Tilt Poker. Aster is headquartered in San Carlos, California and is backed by Sequoia Capital, JAFCO Ventures, IVP, Cambrian Ventures, and First- Round Capital, as well as industry visionaries including David Cheriton and Ron Conway.
