Originally published July 27, 2009

XtremeData, an innovator providing solutions to large data analytics and complex computing problems, recently announced the general availability of dbX. The dbX family represents the next generation in database appliances designed specifically for the unconstrained analysis and exploration of large data sets. The product is a fully-integrated platform and features patented SQL in Siliconhardware acceleration. It is unique among competing products in leveraging the best of commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) Linux server offerings, while seamlessly integrating SQL acceleration. The system offers a breakthrough architecture providing sustainable price/performance leadership.

"XtremeData's positioning of the dbX analytic appliance as an adjunct to existing enterprise systems, specifically to provide unrestricted ad hoc database analysis is absolutely the correct way to go, " said Bill Inmon, the father of data warehousing and CEO of Forest Rim Technology. "With the arrival of unstructured text into the analytics mix, data warehouse volumes will increase by five to tenfold. Because this wave of very large data creates problems that cannot be modeled in advance, dbX is the ideal infrastructure. It supports ad hoc queries on Petabyte datasets and is a promising solution for solving this new class of problems”
