Ingres breaks ice with JasperSoft

Appliance of science

3 Big data security analytics techniques

Ingres has rolled out its first software appliance using the Icebreaker open source chimera developed with start-up rPath.

The database company has released the Icebreaker BI Appliance, integrating its Ingres 2006 database with rPath Linux and business intelligence tools from JasperSoft.

The open source combo will, according to Ingres, reduce the cost and time in deploying data warehouses, in rolling out BI to new groups of users, and in managing and maintaining the open source middleware and application stack.

Ingres thinks it can win business by being cheaper than Oracle - the company it dubs "Enemy Number One". The BI appliance combined with its database subscription model delivers "unparalleled value" to customers, Ingres claims.

While Ingres may be cheaper than Oracle on purchase price, it lacks one important thing that Oracle has in spades and that it can monetize: a partner ecosystem of ISVs and solution providers, building applications on top of its database.

Icebreaker is Ingres's attempt to reach out to third parties using a pre-optimized and tuned open source software stack. Ingres believes it can grow its own business by placing its database at the center of that ecosystem.®
