Frisco, TX and San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) October 15, 2013
Calpont Corporation announced today the next generation of its high performance analytic data platforms, InfiniDB 4 and InfiniDB for the Cloud. InfiniDB 4 includes a number of enhancements for the demands of high availability workloads and additional 3rd party tool integrations that enable entire organizations to get involved as Big Data developers. InfiniDB for the Cloud enables high-performance analytics applications in Amazon Web Services (AWS™) with dynamic provisioning as data demands and processing needs grow.
“InfiniDB is a battle-tested SQL query engine that has proven its ability to handle companies’ largest and most demanding data sets,” said Jim Tommaney, CTO at Calpont. “Today’s product news combined with the new InfiniDB open source licensing announcement signals a new frontier in Big Data analytics. Data scientist, developers and DBAs are rejoicing in the opportunity that awaits them to dive into a familiar MySQL interface and perform complex, ad-hoc BI and dimensional analytics that are unconstrained and can readily scale to meet their needs.”
Calpont also announced today its open-source GPLv2.0 license. This creates new opportunities for companies to experience Big Data analytics by scaling InfiniDB across multiple processing cores, servers and huge data sets without software licensing limitations. See today’s complete announcement Calpont Announces New Open Source Licensing for InfiniDB.
InfiniDB was designed from the inception for large scale, high performance dimensional analytics, predictive analytics, and ad-hoc business intelligence. A massive parallel processing (MPP) columnar solution, InfiniDB executes SQL written queries as parallelized map and reduction operations, providing the best of both performance and scale for analytics. When companies query billions of data points, InfiniDB’s unique two-tier distributed architecture optimizes query processing to all available CPU threads, minimizing I/O reads from disk, and accessing only the data required for analysis. Complex analyses that used to take hours now take minutes or seconds, with consistent and repeatable performance.
Key Points of InfiniDB 4
- InfiniDB 4 is the fourth generation MPP columnar solution from Calpont that is built for speed, scale and simplicity.
- InfiniDB 4 is flexible and open data technology that incorporates both traditional and emerging data technologies to future-proof technology decisions and avoids vendor lock-in.
- InfiniDB 4 uses a familiar MySQL interface and is “ready to go” after a simple download and install.
- InfiniDB 4 includes connectivity to MySQL compatible tools empowers entire organizations to get involved as Big Data developers, analysts and data scientists.
In Addition, InfiniDB for the Cloud Includes:
