Esgyn Corporation, the developer of EsgynDB, is based in the United States and China. The company was founded by ex-HP staff that had worked on successive generations of that company’s database technology, starting with Tandem NonStop SQL, via HP’s enterprise data warehouses, to EsgynDB, which represents the 4th generation of development, and which is a SQL on Hadoop engine focused on supporting hybrid environments where you want to combine transactional and analytic processing with mixed workloads and multi-structured datasets, though it can and does support either of these as independent requirements. It is a commercial implementation of the Apache Trafodion database, to which Esgyn is the prime contributor.
The product is available both in the cloud (and as a part of Esgyn Strato, which is a cloud-based platform offering available as a managed service) and on premises. It is also, in conjunction with Supermicro, available as an appliance. EsgynDB has been deployed in a variety of areas, including Internet of Things (IoT), Banking and Insurance, Telecom, Manufacturing, Internet Security and Smart Cities. Existing clients include a major US bank, China Telecom, China Mobile, Foxconn and Webroot, amongst others.
