Cinchapi Unveils New Version of Open Source Concourse Database
Concourse is a strongly consistent database, ideal for those seeking to work with definitive data.
ATLANTA, GA. November 15, 2016 – Building on its promise to take data from cluster to clarity, Atlanta data start-up, Cinchapi, today announced the availability of beta version 0.5 of its database, Concourse. Concourse, the self-tuning database for transactions and analytics, is open source and freely available for download beginning today at http://ConcourseDB.com.
The latest version of Concourse is also the foundation of the upcoming release of the Cinchapi Data Platform (CDP). Currently in testing, the CDP builds upon the power of Concourse by adding machine learning and natural language processing to unleash an interactive data development experience that makes engineers much more productive. By asking the CDP a few questions, developers can rapidly drill down to expose interesting data and iteratively build automated applications using a few button clicks. The company plans to release a beta version of the Cinchapi Data Platform in early 2017.
“Our vision is ‘computing without complexity’, and we’ve chosen to start by making it easy for developers to build better software, faster.” said CEO and Founder, Jeff Nelson. “Throughout my engineering career, I’ve too often experienced the frustration of spending more time wrangling with data than I do building the tools that use the data. And the emergence of real-time data from the Internet of Things will only compound this problem going forward. With Concourse, we’re pleased to offer developers the first piece of our intelligent software suite that will free them to focus more time on solving their business problems while the data takes care of itself.”
The Concourse Database
An operational database with ad-hoc analytics across time, Concourse offers these key features:
- Automatic Indexing- All data is automatically indexed for search and analytics without slowing down writes so you can analyze anything at anytime.
- Version Control – All changes to data are recorded so you can fetch data from the past and make queries across time.
- Strong Consistency – Concourse uses a novel distributed protocol to maximize availability and throughput without sacrificing trust in the data.
