Aster Data Systems Announces Global Partner Program
System Integrator Acxius and Independent Software Vendor BVI Are Newest Members of Partner Program

SAN CARLOS, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 06/16/09 -- Aster Data Systems, a proven leader in high-performance database systems for data warehousing and analytics, today announced the Aster Global Partner Program, designed to deliver industry-leading solutions and services to address data-driven customer needs. The partner program provides a rich ecosystem of complementary technology and system integration partners for customers who want to do more with the massively-parallel Aster nCluster database.

Aster nCluster is an analytic database with breakthrough capabilities in performance, availability, and rich in-database analytics. Data warehouses powered by Aster nCluster provide high-performance access to a persistent, comprehensive, and up-to-the-minute record of a business's data, enabling them to collect, manage, and monetize terabytes per day of new data.

The Aster Global Partner Program includes leading technology and consulting providers, and will be initially segmented by: independent software vendors (ISVs), technology partners, and system integrators (SIs). Existing members of the partner program can be found here:

"More and more customers are clamoring for the Aster nCluster database to be implemented in mission-critical data warehousing and analytic projects. By creating a formal partner program, we can offer our customers easier access to the deep skills and technologies available to support their Aster data warehouse implementations. In turn, this program benefits our partners by giving them new selling opportunities," said Mayank Bawa, CEO of Aster.

"We are excited to formally launch the Aster Global Partner Program which makes it easier for ISVs, service providers, and platform technology partners to embed the Aster nCluster database in their analytics offerings for customers. We are seeing a growing demand from businesses across industries to harvest growing data volumes for customer acquisition, loyalty management, corporate risk management, fraud detection, and many other business-critical solutions," said Raj Pai, VP of Strategic Alliances of Aster. "By creating a strong ecosystem of partners, customers can now leverage the unique scale, performance and economic advantages offered by Aster nCluster with best-of-breed offerings across their technology solution stack."

BVI (see separate press release issued today for more information)

BVI provides actionable in-store data that allows retailers and brand manufacturers to make much better decisions when it comes to staffing, merchandise placement, display programs and marketing spending. BVI takes in-store analysis well beyond existing point of sale (POS) and video analytics systems, enabling retailers and brand manufacturers to quickly identify problems and areas for improvement. The RetailNEXT data analysis platform is enhanced by a unique set of video tools that enable detailed customer behavior analysis at a fraction of the cost of in-store observation studies.

To serve large multi-store chains, the Aster nCluster database software will be bundled with RetailNEXT to provide aggregation and reporting of individual store data at regional and corporate levels. The combination of BVI and the Aster nCluster database also provides the ability to perform advanced traffic analysis across an entire chain of stores. As part of the relationship, BVI and Aster will jointly market this powerful set of retail decision support products.

Acxius Strategic Consulting (see separate press release issued today for more information)

Acxius Strategic Consulting, a management consulting and systems integration company, today announced a strategic partnership agreement with Aster Data Systems.

Acxius will offer the Aster nCluster database to work in conjunction with Acxius clients' existing data integration products, to enable their customers to rapidly collect and analyze high volumes of data for deep analysis and reporting.
