Fastest Array Database
on Earth

Following our invention and patenting of Array Databases we have built Big Datacube technology unmatched in flex­ib­il­ity, per­form­ance, scalability, and security. Scientfic benchmarks confirm: the pioneer Array Database remains the fastest by far.

The Array Analytics Engine:
Datacubes at Your Fingertips

"We have evaluated different tools, and your tool obviously is the Ferrari" -- Antonio Tabasco, Head of Remote Sensing Applications and Services / Aerospace, GMV

rasdaman ("raster data manager") is the pioneer and leading Array Analytics Engine, for scalable, actionable datacubes in science, engineering, and beyond. It provides agile analytics on massive multidimensional arrays, such as regular and irregular spatio-temporal grids. Its patented architecture is rigorously designed for performance and scalability - more than 2.5 PB of planetary-scale datacube federations have been built successfully, with realtime location-transparent data fusion; array queries have been split across more than 1,000 AWS cloud nodes.

The SQL-style query language allows users to flexibly build their own data product in a "mix and match" style. The underlying engine boosts performance through strong optimizations, parallelization, and modern hardware. This innovation has effectively pioneered the field of Array Databases, and is the blueprint for the OGC and ISO datacube standards.

Key distinguishing features of rasdaman are its flexibility, performance, scalability, and open standards support. On such spatio-temporal sensor, image, simulation, and statistics data appearing, e.g., in earth, space, and life science applications rasdaman allows to quickly set up array-intensive services which are distinguished by their flexibility, speed, and scalability. Optionally, rasdaman integrates itself smoothly into standard databases.

A multitude of clients can access rasdaman databases, such as python, R, QGIS, and ESRI. Conversely, rasdaman can link into any existing archive and with any server-side tool, such as Hadoop. Hence, rasdaman embeds itself smoothly into any existing infrastructure.
