Pentaho Announces Validation on Complete Sun Microsystems Infrastructure Stack

(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) ORLANDO, FL, April 29 / MARKET WIRE/ --

Pentaho Corp., the commercial open source
alternative for business
intelligence, today announced that its flagship product line, the
Pentaho Open BI Suite,
has completed successful validation on the Solaris? 10 Operating System
(OS) as well as Sun's popular GlassFish open source application server v2.
These validations provide updated and expanded support for Sun's entire
infrastructure stack.

Leading organizations around the world leverage Pentaho's best-in-class open source BI capabilities to address a

broad range of business intelligence needs -- from reporting and analysis to dashboards, data
integration, and data mining. As
both an enterprise systems and open source leader, Sun solutions have been
a popular Pentaho deployment choice. By collaborating to validate their
solutions, Sun and Pentaho are
providing peace of mind for organizations who want to achieve long-term
enterprise BI success with integrated, open, enterprise-class solutions.

"Compatibility and vendor relationships are important to enterprise
customers," said David Stodder, vice president and research director at
industry analyst firm Ventana Research. "These integration efforts by Sun
and Pentaho should make their combined solutions even more attractive to
organizations who want low TCO for business intelligence on reliable,
integrated platforms."

For example, Flemish Traffic Center, a Belgian government agency, analyzes
traffic patterns by gathering traffic flow data every minute from more than
500 traffic sensors distributed across the country. They use Pentaho Data
Integration on a four-CPU Sun Fire? server, adding more than two million
rows a day to a warehouse whose largest fact table contains nearly three
billion records. Accor Hotels, the leading European hotel group with more
than 4,000 hotels in nearly 100 countries, uses applications based on
Pentaho open source OLAP and data integration technology as part of
managing its operations in Europe. Accor chose Sun Fire? servers running
the UltraSPARC? processor to support large data volumes and parallel
execution of data integration jobs. The application was implemented by
Sitel France (

"Pentaho's commercial open source BI suite provides a compelling option for
organizations who want to leverage their investments in Sun technologies to

deliver world-class BI applications at a low total cost of ownership," said
Juan Carlos Soto, VP of global market development and engineering at Sun
Microsystems. "We're pleased to work with an open source leader like
Pentaho to deliver production-ready, compatible solutions for enterprise
