Vanguard In-Memory

Strength, speed, and stability for big data processing.

Say goodbye to batch processes and usage-related performance drop-offs. Vanguard In-Memory optimizes memory usage to maximize capacity and maintain peak performance for all users at all times. Our in-memory technology makes exceptional use of data packing and compression, as well as a meticulously designed virtual-memory process. This lets you crunch massive data sets, run exhaustive simulations, and scale up for thousands of simultaneous users – all without any loss of speed or reliability.

Specifically, Vanguard Software customizes itself automatically to manage your data in the most efficient way possible. Depending on the type of work you are doing and how you are using the system, our sophisticated virtual memory management software will ensure that the data you need is available immediately for the fastest access and execution. Only the data that you need will be stored in memory, guaranteeing that you get the most use out of precious system resources.
