Exalead Joins the HP Business Information and Intelligence Program

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - November 18, 2008) - Exalead, a global leader of information access software for business and the web, has become the first information access vendor to join the HP Business Information and Intelligence Program.

The HP Business Information and Intelligence Partner Program is a specialized extension of the HP Developer & Solution Partner Program (DSPP). This specialized partner program is designed for Business Information and Intelligence ISVs who, like Exalead, are developing solutions on HP Integrity, HP Neoview or HP BladeSystems.

"The HP Business Information and Intelligence Partner Program is designed to bring integrated solutions to the demanding enterprise computing environments that house terabytes and petabytes of data," said Exalead CEO Paul Doscher. "HP provides high value hardware and software platforms and Exalead provides industry-leading scalability with its flexible, high performance information access solutions."

Exalead CloudView is an award-winning family of solutions that automatically collect, structure and contextualize high volumes of unstructured and structured content from a number of data sources scattered across the enterprise. Exalead customers around the globe improve information search, discovery, management, security, and storage through unified information access and search; a deeply structured view of structured and unstructured content; and a rich, contextualized presentation of information.

Exalead customer benchmarking shows:

--  Exalead was only vendor in the enterprise search space to architect
    its solution in 64 bit -- as opposed to porting their solution to 64 bit.
    As a result, Exalead has been built to run large-scale implementations on
    significantly less hardware with quicker TIV (time-to-value) than other
    information access and older archaic enterprise search solutions.
--  Exalead customers start with commodity hardware configurations that
    can manage 20 queries per second (QPS) for 20 million plus documents. With
    relatively easy hardware configuration and improvements, some Exalead
    clients manage up to 800 QPS. Another Exalead client has indexed over 1.5
    billion documents on a single server with internet-like response results.
