I got a chance to sit down with Calpont's new VP of Products, Robin Schumacher last week to discuss the announcement of their new open source column-oriented database, InfiniDB. To listen to the interview, click on the embedded link below.
Robin has also posted part one of a two part technical article on InfiniDB in the DevZone. You can check out the article here.
You can also get "up close and personal" with InfiniDB when Robin delivers a free webinar on the advantages of column oriented databases for analytics, high performance query systems and data warehousing next month. Register here.
