Infobright unveiled the 4.0 version of its analytic database, placing special emphasis on the release's ability to crunch machine-generated data from sensors, telecom infrastructure and other sources in "near-real time."
A technology called DomainExpert reduces query times, optimizing performance by "adding intelligence about a particular data domain -- such as web, financial services or telecom," according to Infobright.
Another new feature, called Rough Query, allows users to dig through especially large data sets faster. "Rather than execute a long-running query to find a specific answer, Rough Query enables a user to narrow down the results in an iterative manner, with sub-second response time, before the full query is run," the company said.
... Ingres and Jaspersoft announced a partnership that sees Ingres' VectorWise analytic database combined with Jaspersoft's BI (business intelligence) software in a joint virtual machine.
A 30-day trial download is available at no charge for the package.
