Infobright is a commercial provider of column-oriented relational database software with a focus in machine-generated data. The company's head office is located in Toronto, Canada. Most of its research and development is based in Warsaw, Poland. Infobright's database software is integrated with MySQL, but with its own proprietary data storage and query optimization layers. Infobright uses a columnar approach to database design. When data is loaded into a table, it is broken into the groups of 216 rows, further decomposed into separate data packs for each of the columns. By breaking each column by the same number of rows, it maintains its integrity with other columns for the same entry.
