Top Executive: CEO Michael Hummel

ParStream develops a distributed, massively parallel processing columnar database that's designed to analyze and filter billions of records in sub-second time. The company, based in Cologne, Germany, has its U.S. headquarters in Cupertino, Calif.

ParStream, founded in 2008, recently struck an alliance with MicroStrategy under which that vendor's business analytics software could tap into the processing capabilities of the ParStream database, allowing users to interactively analyze extremely large data sets in real time.
