Kickfire provides the first highperformance, easy to use database appliance for the burgeoning MySQL market. Based on a patented SQL chip that packs the power of tens of CPUs into an exceptionally small, lowpower form factor—Kickfire delivers a quantum leap in performance efficiency avoiding the hardware build out, power, and space costs of today’s data warehouse and database offerings. By delivering astoundingly fast query performance out of the box, Kickfire enables organizations to use MySQL for demanding business intelligence, reporting, and analysis rather than migrating to costly, nonopen source alternatives. Kickfire appliances scale from gigabytes to terabytes and are based on commodity hardware and Linux. They leverage existing storage as well as the openness of MySQL and its entire ecosystem to ensure compatibility and
rapid deployment. Kickfire is backed by three of the bestknown venture capital firms: Accel Partners, Greylock Partners, and The Mayfield Fund.
