July 28, 2008 - Mozilla Corporation deployed Pentaho Open BI Suite and Vertica Analytic Database to integrate and analyze large volumes of log file information in a data warehouse and business intelligence (BI) system.


Mozilla needed to integrate different log sources to better serve its growing user base. As Mozilla outgrew their homegrown log analysis scripts, the company was looking for a more scalable solution.


To improve performance and simplify maintenance, Mozilla deployed Pentaho Data Integration for extract, transform and load (ETL) capabilities and the grid-based, column-oriented Vertica Analytic Database for data analysis across the enterprise.


Pentaho Data Integration provides an ETL front end for administrators to define and maintain data integration jobs as well as a powerful metadata-driven integration engine capable of addressing large integration jobs. Using the Vertica database enables Mozilla to store more information and have more people query it faster and in more ways.


"Pentaho and Vertica offer a great mix of leading edge technologies and commercial support," said Justin Fitzhugh, senior director of engineering operations for Mozilla. "This provides a solid platform for Mozilla's business intelligence system."
