Infobright Sees Explosive Growth One Year After Open Source Data Warehouse Launch

Customer Roster Increases by Tenfold, Community Grows Rapidly, Partner Network Expands Globally

TORONTO--(Marketwire - September 16, 2009) - Infobright, the open source data warehousing company, marked the one-year anniversary of the launch of its open source community and Infobright Community Edition (ICE). The company also announced an array of momentum-related milestones, including more than 15,000 downloads of ICE to date, the addition of nearly 40 partners to its OEM and reseller network, as well as a customer base that has increased by tenfold. Infobright continues to expand its customer roster with online businesses, as well as telecommunications, retail and financial services companies, including recent wins at bWIN games, Smiley Media and TIPS Marketing. Additionally, in order to support a growing customer base in Europe, Infobright has opened a sales office in the UK.

"In releasing the first commercial open source data warehouse, Infobright has delivered the lowest cost and easiest to maintain solution on the market, while still providing the power and performance to handle users' growing analytic requirements," says Miriam Tuerk, Infobright president and CEO. "The fact that our customer base has grown from eight to 80 during one of the worst economic downturns in history is a testament to the value and business benefits that open source solutions like Infobright can bring."

In addition to significant customer traction, Infobright has also experienced tremendous growth in the following areas:

-- Partnerships -- nearly 40 OEMs and resellers have joined Infobright's partner network around the world. Infobright has also released integrated solutions with key technology partners including Actuate, Jaspersoft, Pentaho and Sun Microsystems' MySQL.

-- Open Source Downloads -- there have been more than 15,000 downloads of ICE since its release in September 2008, including thousands of downloads of integrated BI solutions that Infobright offers jointly with Pentaho and Jaspersoft. Additionally, Infobright and Actuate have recently announced (see press release) the availability of an integrated open source solution consisting of BIRT and ICE.

-- Active Open Source User Community -- nearly 3,000 users are actively participating in Infobright's online open source community at www.infobright.org.

-- Product Enhancements -- Infobright has delivered significant new functionality and enhanced performance with the release of eight new versions of ICE as well as two major releases of Infobright Enterprise Edition (IEE), which is the lowest cost enterprise-class data warehouse on the market. These new features include support for operating system environments including Windows and Solaris.

Infobright's move to open source enables users everywhere to download ICE and try the solution at no cost. Organizations interested in more advanced features and support can download a free trial version of IEE.
