Kognitio, developer of an in-memory analytical platform, will announce plans to offer a free "trialware" download of its software with no time restrictions. The free, perpetual-use licenses cover up to 128 GB of data analysis using on-premise or cloud-based systems -- enough to analyze more than 500 million customer records, according to the company.
The offer will allow more companies to add data analysis to their IT systems, according to Kognitio, including Hadoop-based environments. The software can be downloaded from the Amazon Web Services Marketplace for use in the cloud and from the Informatica Marketplace for on-premise software. Kognitio will continue to charge for additional analytical capacity, technical support and other services.
