Yellowbrick Data has updated its namesake hybrid cloud data warehouse platform with a series of workload management enhancements.
Yellowbrick Data, which is based in Palo Alto, Calif., provides a data warehouse platform that can run on-premises and in multi-cloud deployments. With the Release 5 update, the vendor has added self-healing clusters to improve workload management capabilities.. Resource mapping also gets a boost, as does a rate-limiting feature the company refers to as “penalty boxing.”
Yellowbrick Release 5 was introduced Nov. 16 and is generally available.
There has been a lot of interest in the cloud data warehouse market with the recent IPO of pure cloud data warehouse vendor Snowflake. While interest is in cloud technologies is high, there‘s still a place for a high-performance data warehouse that can be deployed and managed on-premises and in a private cloud approach.
That is the niche Yellowbrick occupies, along with vendors such as Greenplum and Netezza that pioneered the niche more than a decade ago, according to Doug Henschen, an analyst at Constellation Research.
“I view the sweet spot as meeting the needs of those who want high scalability and performance at a competitive price point,” he said.
