Infobright goes open source, raises $10mMatthew Aslett, September 15, 2008 @ 9:03 am ET
Until this week Infobright’s claim to open source fame was its partnership with MySQL that enabled its analytical data warehousing software to act as a storage engine for the open source database.
However, the company is now taking the open source route itself by releasing the code behind its Infobright data warehouse (formerly Brighthouse) as Infobright Community Edition.
Earlier this month the company announced that it was moving to a subscription model for the commercial version of the product, Infobright Enterprise Edition, which comes with “enhanced features, services and support, warranty” amongst other things.
The company has also announced a $10m Series C investment which will apparently be “used largely to fuel the growth of the new www.infobright.org open source community and the Infobright Community Edition (ICE) open source data warehouse”.
Flybridge Capital and Sun Microsystems have joined existing investor RBC Venture Partners on th funding round. The deal is Sun’s second venture investment in data warehousing this year. It joined GreenPlum’s $27m Series C round in January.
