Infobright, the open source analytic database company, today announced with Zend Technologies, the PHP Company, a new benchmark demonstrating that their products, when used together, deliver higher performance in database analytics for PHP-based Web applications. As more companies move their business online, they need real-time access to data and analytics for informed decision-making about sales, customer behavior, financial trends and more. Infobright and Zend have teamed up to provide developers with tools to quickly build PHP applications that can capture and analyze this data in a highly dynamic environment.
Infobright’s analytic database is designed for fast, accurate analysis of machine-generated data — from Web, system and network logs to sensor readings, call detail records, telemetry data and more. Zend Server provides proactive monitoring and code tracing for root-cause diagnostics, along with optimization and acceleration capabilities, to ensure fast Web application response times, high availability and improved resource utilization.
With Infobright and Zend, PHP developers can achieve significant improvements in query performance and data compression when analyzing large volumes of data.
The performance advantages of using Infobright and Zend Server together are exemplified in a recent test in which Infobright ran a series of complex queries on a large set of weather-specific sensor data.
“When working with analytical queries in PHP applications, we realized up to a ten-fold increase in performance and more than a 20:1 data compression result, with no indexes, partitioning or database tuning required,” said Susan Davis, Vice President of Marketing and Product Management at Infobright.
“Companies that use PHP-based web applications for big data analytics are asking for optimal performance, application management and support for the PHP stack,” said Kent Mitchell, Director of Product Management at Zend. “When PHP developers use Infobright and Zend Server together, they not only get an improved analytics engine, but also more visibility and control in managing their PHP applications.”
Both Infobright and Zend Server are available as free community editions and licensed enterprise editions.
