Lixto gets into the Clouds



New version of Lixto’s Online Market Intelligence solution utilises Internet Cloud Computing to support data collection and processing

Lixto Software (www.lixto.com), the Web Intelligence company, today announced the release of Version 5 of its Web Data Extraction Software Suite comprising the Lixto Visual Developer and the Lixto Transformation Server. This latest version of the Lixto Online Market Intelligence (OMI) solution utilises the power of Internet Cloud Computing to improve the scalability and processing power of the company’s SaaS and on-premise web intelligence solution that will allow Lixto’s customers to extract even more data from the Internet for analysis in real-time.

To achieve this virtual infinite scaling of its solution, Lixto has introduced a new software architecture into the latest Version 5 solution for its server-side products that supports a grid-based scaling (or Cloud Computing) approach. This allows for linear scaling in relation to the number of processing units available in a cluster of servers. The software supports the use of Cloud Computing resources such as Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). The new server architecture also introduces intelligent load-distribution amongst the available processing units resulting in more efficient resource utilization and reduced management overhead.

According to Robert Bamgartner, VP of Research and Development at Lixto, “The new server architecture on Version 5 is a major technical breakthrough that will enable our customers to gather more Web data in a shorter amount of time, whilst reducing the overall resource consumption in a typical application. Our vertical solutions will benefit from the new technology in terms of scalability and performance in a transparent way and due to its reverse compatibility with previous versions of the product, upgrading to the latest version is straightforward.”
