GridSQL is a shared-nothing clustered database system for data warehousing designed for Postgres Plus or PostgreSQL. It includes intelligence to parallelize over multiple servers for achieving faster query response times.
GridSQL clusters together independent database nodes and presents them as a unified, virtual database. GridSQL's intelligent partitioning engine allows data to be distributed across all nodes in a configurable manner, and then parallelizes query execution across the distributed infrastructure.
Here are some key features of "GridSQL":
Leverages parallelism to quickly and efficiently perform queries on large data volumes
Supports Structured Query Language (SQL)
Compatible with the PostgreSQL protocol
Works with EnterpriseDB's or PostgreSQL's drivers including JDBC, ODBC, and .NET provider
Flexible configuration options and administration
· Java 2 Standard Edition Runtime Environment
