Acunu has developed a database infrastructure and analytics software package targeting the fast growing Big Data market. Big Data is the term for large volumes of data, including internet and social media generated data which can be difficult to store, extract and analyse information from.
Acunu forms fast databases on cheap commodity hardware, enabling customers to store Big Data and to access it in real-time, significantly cheaper and more effectively than competitors. Customers can also search these databases for useful information and analyse it instantly.
The company was founded in 2009 by researchers and engineers from Cambridge and Oxford universities and is backed by investors including Eden Ventures, Pentech Ventures and Oxford Technology Management alongside Imperial Innovations.
