CEO Blog: Correcting the Record
We issued a press release last week announcing the Yellow Pages Group (YPG) as a customer of our newly introduced Infopliance. We are delighted with having YPG as a customer for the Infopliance. However, in the body of the announcement there was a reference to Infobright’s ability to manage a Petabyte of data on a single node. This statement needs clarification and correction.
The way the sentence was phrased, while conceivably possible, is not something we would ever recommend. Rather, the statement should have referenced how the Infobright can, and has, supported Petabyte instances across multiple nodes. Moreover, our single node scalability is quite impressive. We can support in a single node instances of Infobright approaching 100TB, and in a single node Infopliance, up to 150TB. The scalability is impressive, and the costs associated with establishing and maintaining that environment is exceptionally aggressive.
I am unbelievably proud of the progress we have made in the past couple of years at Infobright. In additional to substantial momentum in the Adtech space and an increasing number of customers using Infobright as a really cool abstraction layer on top of Hadoop or MongoDB, we count some of the largest OEM providers in the Telco space as customers. We are intimately aware that the capabilities we provide there are indicative of our ability to deliver unique value to the vast growth in the M2M/Internet of Things world.
And while I want us to state, again and again, why we have so much faith in the value we bring, I don't want us to overstate anything, hence the correction here.
