the Zvents Hypertable project.
"Event search firm Zvents is releasing a massively parallel database server, based on a published Google design, as an open source project. The new software, Hypertable, is designed to scale to 1000 nodes, all commodity PCs, said Doug Judd, principal search architect for Zvents, in a LinuxWorld.com podcast.
Moving the project from in-house to open source is a way for a relatively small company to get the infrastructure software it needs, Judd says.
