Perhaps I'm mistaken on BizGres

I wasn’t exactly flattering to GreenPlum in this blog. I basically said that anything interesting they were doing was going to be in their MPP (commerical) instead of BizGres (Open Source). I’ve just looked (not used, just read in the docs) at the features for BizGres 0.7 and there are some interesting features in there.

  • Bitmap Index Scan Performance Enhancement
  • Table Partitioning
  • KETL – extract, transform and load (ETL) technology from Kinetic Networks
  • JasperReports from JasperSoft

Again, too busy at the mo’ to have a look although would love to see what the KETL is all about. We’ll see what the uptake and community acceptance is… It’ll be interesting to see what happens with the new three way partnership between Jasper/Kinetic/GreenPlum as well.
