Infobright DB Review

We now have multiple times faster queries in comparison to previously.

What is most valuable?

The following features are valuable for us:

  • Columnar type of the database itself.
  • Fast processing.
  • Big data storage.
  • Possibility to use SQL language (MS SSAS uses DAX, MDX).

How has it helped my organization?

We now have multiple times faster queries in comparison to MS SQL.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using the solution for six months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We did not encounter any stability issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We did not technically have any scalability issues.

How is customer service and technical support?

The technical support is good enough.

Which solutions did we use previously?

On the contrary, we have switched back to the MS SSAS Tabular Model, because of pricing policy. The Infobright annual subscription price for one year of usage is more expensive than a full MS SQL Enterprise license.

How was the initial setup?

There were some minor issues. I do not remember what exactly. Technical support gave us all the help we needed.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

At the moment when we tried Infobright, the price was high enough especially as it was an annual subscription.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did not evaluate other options before but after. First we tried Infobright, then MS SSAS Tabular Model.

I would be interested to know what database transaction counts you run at? Avg writes per minute and avg query clients running concurrently with avg row retrievals per client? If you’re at 500k writes per minute or more, I’m wondering how you were able to get either Infobright or MS SQL to work.
