Startup Kickstarts MySQL

Kickfire is unveiling an analytic appliance that targets the MySQL segment at the lower end of the data warehousing market. The Santa Clara, Calif-based startup claims its appliance delivers data warehousing out of the box.


The $32,000 appliance is equipped with a proprietary SQL chip and software that improves performance efficiency and suports 100 concurrent users and 1,000 active users, reports eWeek. According to Computerworld, Mamasource, an online community for moms and Kickfire's first customer, cut its upload time of 1GB of clickstream data by almost three hours using Kickfire's appliance.
