Actian X

Actian X is a hybrid, object-relational database management system. The technology integrates the capabilities of Ingres (an open-source relational database solution) with the high-performance, column-oriented Vector database technology. Actian X can be used across both transactional and analytic workloads, generally requiring less maintenance than separate databases for each function. In addition to combining OLTP and OLAP operations within a single platform, Actian X continues to evolve its products to keep up with modern data management requirements.
