Infobright, an open source data warehousing company, and Talend, an open source data integration company, have announced the availability of two integrated virtual machines for data warehousing and business intelligence. The first virtual machine combines the Infobright Community Edition analytic database with the Talend data integration tool, Talend Open Studio. The second virtual machine bundles these same two products with Jaspersoft's open source report server, JasperServer Community Edition, to deliver an end-to-end business intelligence solution.
Each virtual machine benefits from Infobright and Talend's large open source communities, and gives developers the ability to quickly and easily download, install, test and deploy a powerful, self-managing analytic database in conjunction with a leading ETL tool and business intelligence functionality.
Susan Davis, vice president of marketing at Infobright, tells 5 Minute Briefing that "each virtual machine requires only one install for the entire bundle and is preconfigured such that users can get started right away with integrating data and doing reporting. The Infobright server is totally designed for analytics and can quickly load lots of data and do ad hoc queries. It is self-managing in that it is preconfigured, does not require specific schema to be created, and can do all of its own tuning."
Infobright is built on MySQL, and its self-managing software reduces administrative efforts by up to 90%. Through the virtual machines, Infobright, Talend, and Jaspersoft customers now have access to innovative and affordable database, data integration and BI capabilities within a single offering. The virtual machines include sample transformations that extract data and load it into the Infobright analytic database, demonstrating the products' ease of use and performance. Each can be freely downloaded. Go here.
