MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 5, 2001
Sagent (Nasdaq:SGNT), a leading provider of enterprise business intelligence solutions, today announced that the company's recent performance benchmarks indicate that Sagent is the extraction, transformation and load (ETL (Extract, Transform, Load) The functions performed when pulling data out of one database and placing it into another of a different type. ETL is used to migrate data, often from relational databases into decision support systems. ) performance leader, and that the Sagent Data Flow Server scales linearly from four to 64 CPUs. This benchmark test demonstrates that the latest version of the Sagent Solution provides the level of performance that is required by customers with large databases and large user populations.
"The growing requirements for highly scalable data warehouses built on highly scalable parallel processing parallel processing, the concurrent or simultaneous execution of two or more parts of a single computer program, at speeds far exceeding those of a conventional computer. servers and database technology are beginning to mandate fully parallel and distributed ETL technology," said Rob Tholemeier, senior research analyst, Wells Fargo Wells Fargo

Based on an industry standard benchmark, the Sagent Solution achieved a relational database load rate of 32.6 Megabytes/second or 1.95 Gigabytes/minute on a 64 CPU CPU

Principal component of a digital computer, composed of a control unit, an instruction-decoding unit, and an arithmetic-logic unit. Sun Solaris Enterprise 10000 machine. At this speed, a Terabyte of data loads in 8.5 hours; a 100 Gigabyte load completes in less than one hour; and a 10 Gigabyte load in less than six minutes. This rate represents performance over twice the speed as the best previously published industry results. Performance of this superior level is critical to data intensive industries such as telecom, insurance, healthcare, government and finance.
"Sagent's patented dataflow architecture was designed from the beginning to be massively parallel. This benchmark demonstrates the scalability advantage that we have continually delivered to our customers. The architectural advantage extends beyond the loading of large data sets to include the rapid processing and delivery of critical information," said Ken Gardner, chairman and founder, Sagent. "In large scale data warehousing, faster is better. As data volumes grow and processing windows shrink, a parallel architecture offers the only technology solution."
Sagent and systems consultants at GE Access performed standard test suites against a Sun Enterprise 10000 Server with 64 CPUs using the Sagent 4.5i out-the-box software.
