EXASolution is a parallelized relational DBMS which runs on a cluster of standard hardware servers. Following the SPMD model, on each node the identical code is executed simultaneously. The data is stored in a column-oriented way and proprietary InMemory compression methods are used. The company claims that tuning efforts are not necessary since the database includes some kind of automatic self-optimization (like automatic indices, table statistics, and distributing of data).
In-Database analytics is supported. EXASolution integrates support to run Lua, Python, and GNU R scripts in its DBMS cluster in parallel.
