Infobright & Talend Combine on Free Virtual Data Warehouse

Virtual machines include sample transformations that extract data and load it into the Infobright analytic database

Virtualization Magazine on Ulitzer

Infobright, the open source data warehousing company, and Talend, the open source data integration house, have popped up with two free integrated virtual machines. One combines the Community Edition of Infobright's MySQL-based analytic database with Talend Open Studio, its data integration tool. The other bundles in the Community Edition of Jaspersoft's open source report server, JasperServer, for an end-to-end business intelligence solution.

They say nobody else can hand you everything you need in minutes. There's nothing comparable. Still they're expecting only the usual single-digit percentage upgrades to their paid software.

Infobright's self-managing software is supposed to reduce administrative effort by up to 90%, leverages standard servers, and reportedly needs less storage than rival products because of data compression and the elimination of indexes, data partitioning or data duplication.

The virtual machines include sample transformations that extract data and load it into the Infobright analytic database as well as manuals. See
