As solid state drives approach $1,000 for a terabyte in a 2.5" form factor analytic databases are going to keep getting faster and cheaper if you can avoid expensive software. Think Infobright.

Curt Monash starts: "To my taste, the most glaring mis-rankings in the 2012 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Data Warehouse Database Management are that it is too positive on Kognitio and too negative on Infobright."

Later in the blog, he continues:
"I also am in substantial agreement with the 2012 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Data Warehouse Database Management about Infobright facts, but this time I’m the one with the more favorable interpretation. I agree that Infobright is a bit limited in features, in the areas Gartner cites and in analytic platform capabilities as well. Even so, Infobright is far ahead of VectorWise in — also low-priced — sales, and ahead in product stability and features too. Yet Gartner gives Infobright vastly lower marks than Actian. I suspect that the essence of our disagreement is that Gartner sees Infobright’s focus on machine-generated data as something that 'limits market expansion', while I see machine-generated data as something that is by every measure* growing to be a majority of the whole."

After looking at the "magic quadrant," be sure to read the Infobright section, which includes:
"Strengths
    Successful niche focus. ...
    Price/performance balance. ...
    Simplicity. ...
    Low pricing. ..."

"Sears is consolidating its databases to MySQL, InfoBright, and Teradata--EMC Greenplum, Microsoft SQL Server, and Oracle (including four Exadata boxes) are on their way out, Shelley says."

Infobright Powers Information Builders to Top of BI Heap

As you may have noticed, Information Management reports that Ventana Research awarded Information Builders their highest 2012 Business Intelligence Value Index (http://www.information-management.com/blogs/the-hottest-business-intelligence-vendors-of-2012-10023442-1.html).

As you may recall:
"At the beginning of 2012, Infobright also entered an OEM agreement with Information Builders, a business intelligence (BI) solutions provider. With the OEM agreement, Infobright’s IEE will be embedded in Information Builders’ products." (http://www.businessandsoftwarestrategyforglobalisation.com/a-brief-look-at-infobright/)
