FAQ

Frequently asked questions about Exasol

What exactly does Exasol do?

Exasol AG is a global technology company that offers high-performance next-generation database technology. Unlike traditional database management systems, which use a computer’s hard disk drives to store data, the next generation relies on in-memory processing, which utilizes a computer’s random access memory (RAM) to process data. This not only has the advantage that it offers much higher access speeds than hard disk drives, but accesses are also much easier due to the algorithms used. The much faster performance enables organizations to use their business data to make better decisions, to achieve competitive advantages or to develop entirely new business models with the help of data analytics. Exasol’s industry-independent in-memory MPP database permits data processing and analytics at high speed, flexibility and scalability. It is not an add-on feature developed for existing database products, but was planned and developed as an in-memory database from the very beginning. As a result, users benefit from the advantages provided by Exasol especially in complex and demanding analyses and when managing large data volumes (big data) – in the cloud, locally in their data center or in a hybrid environment.

Who are Exasol’s main competitors?

Exasol’s competitors are not only well-known corporations and typical providers of database and data analytics solutions such as Microsoft (Azure / SQL Server), Oracle (Database), Amazon (Redshift) or SAP (BW/4HANA), but also smaller, globally active specialist providers such as US cloud data specialist Snowflake, which completed the world’s largest IPO in the software industry in September 2020.

What makes Exasol special and how does the company differentiate itself from the competition?

The core and flagship of the company is the high-performance in-memory MPP database, which not only enables the storage of complex and demanding data volumes (big data), but above all also delivers high-performance analytics on a highly scalable, easy-to-use, cost-efficient and quickly deployable system. In contrast to some competitor products, Exasol’s solution does not require the entire database to be stored in-memory. Experience shows that optimal performance is achieved already with a main memory size in the order of only 10% of the raw data volume. Moreover, users benefit from comprehensive solution scenarios, e.g. for business intelligence, customer insight and data warehousing and even complex predictive analytics using artificial intelligence in real time. Besides the large number of possible applications of Exasol’s industry-independent solution, customers also benefit from a wide range of operation options – no matter whether it’s on-premise, private cloud, hybrid or public cloud: customers decide according to their specific business requirements.

Many of Exasol’s direct competitors offer only cloud-based solutions. Major analyst firms such as Gartner assume, however, that many customers will continue to prioritize on-premise data management solutions in the future. Exasol therefore sees its hybrid model as a differentiation from competitors, which opens up corresponding market opportunities. Successful companies worldwide such as Otto, Adidas, Dell, Zalando, Xing, arvato Bertelsmann and many others rely on Exasol’s innovative solution. Exasol is rated as the market leader in various analyst rankings such as BARC The Data Management Survey 20 or the Dresner ADI Report 21, always scoring top marks.

What is more, Exasol has been the record holder in the TPC-H Benchmark, the reference for analytical database systems, for over 10 years. According to studies, the solution leads the market in terms of performance and value-for-money.

What are Exasol’s historical milestones?

Why did Exasol decide to go public in May 2020 and what has changed for the company since then?

Ever since the company was founded 20 years ago, it has worked to develop a high-performance and innovative best-in-class solution, which has become increasingly relevant in recent years with the help of ever-increasing data volumes. The trend among companies to benefit from the high importance of their own business data and to make data-based decisions also supports the rapid developments in this growth market. To ensure that Exasol will also be able to continue its growth and exploit the underlying market potential, the company decided to go public in May 2020. Thanks to the successful IPO, the company can now focus on implementing its growth strategy and strengthening its staff in its core markets, primarily in the revenue-relevant key areas of sales and marketing.
