M2M: Ingres Partners with NST to Expand Into Japanese Market

By Anshu Shrivastava December 06, 2010

Ingres Corp., has expanded into the Japanese market via a new partnership with New System Technology (NST), a distributor of packaged applications to over 400 local enterprises, resellers, systems integrators (SI) and outsourcers throughout Japan.

Roger Burkhardt, president and CEO of Ingres worldwide, believes that the Ingres and NST partnership will offer an enterprise-class database and breakthrough analytics at a much lower price point to existing technologies, giving the Japanese market the ability to deliver rich analytics to all corners of the organization.

NST said that it selected Ingres for its strong reputation and deep database capabilities. “We chose to partner with Ingres because they offer our enterprise and midmarket customers a refreshing alternative to mainstream database and analytic database vendors and an opportunity to build complete enterprise solution stacks with Ingres and RedHat,” said Nobuaki Noda, president at NST.

The company plans to offer both Ingres 10 and Ingres VectorWise to its customer base across diverse industries, including finance, manufacturing, pharmaceutics and telecommunications.

An enterprise-grade transactional database, Ingres database is used by over 10,000 customers worldwide. Company officials said that Ingres VectorWise is a next generation analytic database that unlocks the power of modern commodity CPUs with a database engine that leverages vector-based processing and on-chip memory.

Yuji Hirokawa, president at Red Hat Japan, said that in test with Red Hat Enterprise Linux and JBoss middleware, the Ingres VectorWise database delivered compelling performance, and the company is confident customers will welcome this solution for its greater value.

“This partnership marks a significant investment by both companies to provide Japanese partners and customers a compelling alternative to dominant proprietary database vendors,” Burkhardt said.

Ingres develops and markets an open source enterprise-grade relational database and an analytic database, VectorWise, designed to support the growing need for analytics and business intelligence.

In October, the company announced a strategic relationship with Pentaho to boost Pentaho products with Ingres VectorWise Database.
