Delivering Scale, Speed and Simplicity to Large Scale Data Analytics

Calpont Corporation

Together, SkySQL and Calpont enable data warehousing to deliver greater business value, and much faster, with an architecture that is engineered to easily scale as business demands grow.

O’REILLY MYSQL CONFERENCE -- Calpont Corporation, a leading provider of high-performance analytic databases, today announced a partnership with SkySQL to deliver analytic data solutions for MySQL users as part of the SkySQL™ Reference Architecture. Calpont InfiniDB is a highly-available, column-oriented storage engine designed for large scale BI and analytics data environments. The SkySQL Reference Architecture reduces the cost and complexity of deploying some of the most common data infrastructure applications for high availability, Web scalability, data warehousing/business intelligence, and the cloud.

“By joining forces with the industry’s most critical providers of data infrastructure technologies, such as Calpont, we’re significantly strengthening the reference architecture, which serves as a proven framework for data infrastructure applications,” said Ulf Sandberg, founder and CEO of SkySQL. “Each component of the reference architecture has been validated and tested by SkySQL. And of course, it is backed by our trusted team of MySQL database experts.”

Calpont InfiniDB uniquely complements the SkySQL Reference Architecture by bringing large scale, parallel query capabilities to MySQL users, who also benefit by the familiar SQL interface they are already accustomed to with MySQL. InfiniDB’s massive parallel processing (MPP) architecture is known for its ability to quickly scale-out with consistent query performance across very large data sets, such as those in web analytic applications.

“Calpont is thrilled to be part of the SkySQL Reference Architecture, as we are committed to supporting a company that provides best practices for MySQL database deployment. InfiniDB provides an easy integration framework for the new requirements of business intelligence and analytics deployments for web and other applications, both on-premise and in the cloud,” said Jim Tommaney, chief technology officer of Calpont Corporation. “Together, SkySQL and Calpont enable data warehousing to deliver greater business value, and much faster, with an architecture that is engineered to easily scale as business demands grow.”

SkySQL™ Reference Architecture
The reference architecture leverages community best practices, as well as open and closed source software, pre-selected, tested and validated by SkySQL. A key feature of the SkySQL Reference Architecture is a web-based provisioning system, which provides the graphical user interface that allows the user to uniquely configure a solution for their particular needs.
