FindContains improves speeds by factor of 10

Paradigma Software has released a major update for its columnar database for business and developers, Valentina DB 4.6. The software is a visual report creation and generation engine that works in the Valentina DB kernel to generate charts, graphs, complex layouts of data and PDFs. Valentina uses column organization of data to focus queries to only the necessary data. It uses indexes according to the best use for a given database instead of defaulting to b-tree indexes and it uses bitsets for resolving queries, offering numerous algorithm branches. It has an optimized cache for reduction of I/O overload and uses an advanced SQL optimizer.

Version 4.6 adds a function browser and includes numerous performance improvements. The indexed search speed is 20-percent faster while the opening of databases is 40-percent quicker. The speed of FindContains has been improved by a factor of 10. Valentina Studio Functions Browser gets new display options and Valentina Studio Console adds filtered status information. There are also new learning resources.

Valentina DB 4.6 works with the Mac OS as well as Windows and Linux. Prices start at $200 for developer versions.
