Boston, Mass. – September 15, 2008 – Mass High Tech, The Journal of New England Technology, has named Foster Hinshaw to its list of 2008 All-Stars. Now in its 13th year, the Mass High Tech All-Stars award recognizes the region’s leaders in New England’s innovation economy.
Foster Hinshaw, president and chief executive officer of Dataupia Corporation, was one of more than 200 people nominated for consideration in 14 sectors, and has been selected as the top candidate for Information Systems.
“As companies consistently work to try and do more with less, it is essential that they realize the direct correlation between data accessibility and valuable business intelligence,” said Foster Hinshaw, chief executive officer, Dataupia. “It’s a real honor to be designated as an all-star and this award also serves as a reminder of the significance of technology, such as the Dataupia Satori Server, that helps businesses free their data.”
The Dataupia™ Satori Server is an all-in-one solution – server, storage and optimization software packaged as a data warehouse appliance – designed specifically to deliver persistent access to as much data as an organization needs. The Dataupia Satori Server is the first and only solution designed for database and application transparency. The combination of highly specialized software and powerful processors allows large amounts of data to remain on-line and ready for use. Additionally, this solution provides continuous and seamless scalability for increased users and data. Dataupia recently added a dynamic aggregation enhancement to its solution to increase its ability to handle mixed query workloads. This enables massively parallel processing for data exploration and point queries, providing interactive reporting functionality across multiple databases and new applications.
“The Mass High Tech All-Stars event is the technology industry’s premier event in New England, and we’re thrilled to have Foster Hinshaw be a part of our celebration,” said Douglas Banks, editor of Mass High Tech. “This year’s group illustrates once again why New England is a world leader in technology and innovation.”
