Deliver enterprise BI capabilities on-premise with the agility and economics of software-as-a-service. Get all the components of the Birst BI platform: data integration and ETL services, analytics, pixel-perfect and ad-hoc reports, scheduling and delivery—in an easy-to-deploy, self-contained virtual package.
Support large numbers of users and quickly increase capacity with a software appliance that is designed as an on-demand software solution. Built on a shared-nothing architecture, each node is independent and self-sufficient, with no single point of contention across the entire system. Increase capacity using standard web load balancing technology by adding new nodes to the system.
Birst Appliance is designed for operation in a high-availability environment. If an individual server running an instance of the appliance fails, the hardware/software failure is detected automatically and another instance takes over without administrative intervention.
Birst Appliance encapsulates all its dependencies in a pre-integrated and self-contained package. This dramatically simplifies installation by freeing IT from having to worry about resolving potentially complex OS compatibility issues, library dependencies or undesirable interactions with other applications. The appliance runs on any virtual machine or hypervisor that supports the Open Virtualization Format (OVF).
Upgrades in Place
Multiple release versions of Birst can run at the same time across a single database and user set. With multiple release versions running concurrently, users are able to easily switch from one release to another, simplifying upgrades and subsequent required testing.
