What is most valuable?

A valuable feature was the use of a columnar database for large, ever-growing, big datasets. It also have very amazing smart grid query feature for very fast aggregate queries across millions of rows

How has it helped my organization?

When working properly, the ability to continually insert large datasets, millions of records per minute, while simultaneously querying the same data tables, was very impressive. But it almost never was able to run continually without errors.

What needs improvement?

This version of Infobright has zero support for distributed scalability. The internal smart grid employed for each table has a major flaw in that the data size cannot be expunged until 2GB of data is reached at the column-level. This is a... more»

What is most valuable?

The performance of ad hoc aggregation queries is superior to any RDBMS that I have used and I have used them all. The parallel load engine (DLP) makes it the fastest load on the market that I know of (as of April 2017.) The compression of... more»

How has it helped my organization?

See answer to the previous question.

What needs improvement?

What is most valuable?

Performance, compression, and compatibility with MySQL

How has it helped my organization?

Initially, we used a relational database, MySQL along side Hadoop to create summary tables to produce our reports. Infobright allowed us to reduce the number of moving parts and complexity that we had while providing good performance to... more»

What needs improvement?

We ran into some quirks that Infobright had. We interacted with Infobright's support and were able to resolve them. There still are issues with data replication - Infobright is currently for one server (unless you buy the Infobright... more»

What is most valuable?

I love that the solution is a columnar DB. This means that there is data compression on the disk, a fully-indexed columnstore, and highly efficient query execution.

How has it helped my organization?

ICE helped us improve the speed for the “group-by” query by 10x. The system is robust and simple (it seems to be MySQL); installation, configuration and backup are very easy. Furthermore, there is no need to fine-tune database schema objects.... more»

What needs improvement?

Complex subquery and analitycal functions could be improved.

What is most valuable?

Ability to work with it in the same manner as MySQL works; In the beginning of the BigData solutions boom, our company had previously been working with MySQL, and Infobright gave us the ability to avoid significant changes in our data... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Not improved, it just postponed the required changes, usage of Elasticsearch, Cassandra.

What needs improvement?

It was rather slow, we have had made all reports at night to avoid overload. Any tables modification (except only adding new columns to tables) was prohibited. Even new columns must be added to the end of a table.
