RainStor Updates Database With Security, Search Capabilities
RainStor will unveil a major update to its database software with new security features the company said should boost the adoption rate of Hadoop among security-sensitive customers in government, banks and telecommunications companies.
New security capabilities in the RainStor database, which runs natively on Hadoop, include data encryption, data masking and views, audit trail and tamper-proofing, configurable data disposition, and support for Kerberos, LDAP, Active Directory and PAM (Linux's Pluggable Authentication Modules).
The new search capabilities boost the database's query performance by a factor of 10 to 100, the company said, and enable faster text search. The database can now search across billions of records on a multi-petabyte scale, Rainstor said.
