Infobright Releases Open Source Data Warehouse Software for 32-Bit Linux

Company Responds to Strong Demand From infobright.org Community

TORONTO--(Marketwire - October 21, 2008) - Infobright, the open source data warehousing company, today announced availability of its new 32-bit Linux version of Infobright Community Edition (ICE), its open source data warehouse software. The software, initially released on September 15 for 64-bit Linux, is a highly scalable, easy-to-use analytic data warehouse. Both versions are available for download on Infobright.org, the community web site and development portal for open source enthusiasts with corporate data warehouse needs.

Based on infobright.org community feedback, the most highly requested operating environment for ICE was for a 32-bit version of the software. The company responded quickly to the needs of the community by releasing the 32-bit version.

Designed for analytic applications, ICE is easy to use, simple to manage and designed to handle data volumes from 500GB to 30TB. ICE combines a column-oriented database with a unique Knowledge Grid architecture to eliminate the complexity inherent in traditional data warehouse products. It also eliminates the costly hardware infrastructure and time-consuming manual processes required to build, tune and maintain a data warehouse. ICE is integrated with MySQL, the world's most popular open source database, delivering the industry's most scalable data warehouse platform for MySQL.

"The Infobright team is committed to being very responsive to the needs of our community," said Mark Windrim, vice president of community relations for Infobright. "Our goal is to build a strong and vibrant community that makes it easy for anyone who needs a scalable data warehouse to easily download, install and manage it. Providing a 32-bit version was key to that, as it enables users to download the software and try it out immediately."
