Infobright Announces New Patent on Its Investigative Analytic Technology

Patent Covers Pre-Aggregation Methods Designed to Further Optimize Analytic Query Performance in the Face of Big Data Growth

TORONTO--(Marketwired - May 7, 2013) - Infobright today announced that the company has been granted a new patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office, U.S. Patent No. 8266147, entitled "Methods and Systems for Database Optimization," which covers Infobright's new Cluster on Load capability. With Cluster on Load, Infobright customers will get improved real-time results from their investigative analytics even as their machine-generated data grows beyond the petabyte scale.

Key to Infobright's investigative analytic engine is its innovative Knowledge Grid architecture, which comprises statistics and metadata that are automatically created upon uploading and compressing raw data (organized into data packs containing 64K data values) for analysis. The Knowledge Grid enables users to extract useful intelligence from large volumes of data without time-consuming manual configuration. In addition, it delivers ultra-fast results from all types of analytic queries -- including complex or frequently changing ad-hoc queries -- with no administrative "tinkering" in the form of indexes, partitions or projections required. The patented Cluster on Load capability pre-aggregates similar data portions into more homogeneous data packs to further improve compression and optimize query performance.

"As we continue to see rapidly growing movement towards the Internet of Things, companies need to capitalize on the explosion of machine-generated data streaming in from devices, systems, networks and more, so that they can make better decisions at the speed of business," said Don DeLoach, CEO of Infobright. "We're pleased to announce our patented Cluster on Load capability, which carries on Infobright's tradition of anticipating the analytic and technical challenges our customers will face as this exciting market unfolds. With Cluster on Load, customers can be confident that Infobright will continue to deliver analytic solutions that are simple, powerful and affordable even in the face of incredible data growth." 

Cluster on Load is available in Infopliance™ for core enterprise configurations Infobright® Enterprise Edition (IEE) for software-only deployments, and embedded IEE for OEM and device-level integrations. For more information on U.S. Patent No. 8266147, please visit
