Clusterpoint is a European software technology company developing and supporting the Clusterpoint database management system platform. [1][2][3]

The company was founded by software engineers, [4] and is venture capital backed. [5] [6][7] [8] For most of its history Clusterpoint was servicing business customers as an enterprise software vendor.[9][10][11]

Clusterpoint database[edit]

Clusterpoint is a schema-free document database that removes complexity, scalability problems and performance limitations of relational database architecture.[12]

It features the elimination of customer integration efforts among database, search and analytics platforms, replacing integrated multi-platform solutions with a single-platform and one-API solution. Examples are where SQL RDBMS data is used in combination with an enterprise search engine to address performance and scalability needs of web and mobile applications, or where Big data and analytics tools such as Hadoop might be needed due to sheer volume of data or large computing workloads.[13]

General features[edit]

  • Data is managed in open, cross-platform, industry standard XML or JSON format using open API, for instance, Python API[14][15] or JavaScript Node.js API[16]
  • Data structure agnostic and type-rich database, handles variable data structure XML or JSON documents in a single database. Supports unstructured textual data, dates, numbers, meta-data (all XML and JSON types)
  • Cross-platform support: binaries are available for Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OS X and Windows. Clusterpoint database software can be compiled on other operating systems.
  • Multi-master cluster software architecture: no single point of failure, any cluster node can serve as a master and run the management application
  • Horizontal database scalability: scales out from a single server to few thousands of servers networked into a cluster infrastructure

The firm offered offers two database licensing options based on functionality and scalability:[edit]

- Clusterpoint Enterprise - The most comprehensive DBMS product solution, delivering unlimited scalability and the highest standards of enterprise grade functionality, fulfilling the most demanding of customer requirements.

- Clusterpoint Lite - The Clusterpoint DBMS solution for smaller organisations who require high standards in basic database functionality, supported by replication on 2 servers, but for whom scalability and sharding is not an immediate operational requirement.

Clusterpoint Products[edit]

  • Clusterpoint DBMS - clustered NoSQL database, which uses approach of multiple server system to spread load and increase performance. Clusterpoint database facilitates high parallelism of computing and distribution of data.
  • GOL: Big Data SIEM Analytics tool from Clusterpark - Log, Events and Security Records Search and Analytics.[17]
  • DigiBrowser: Quick SQL denormalization into NoSQL database - imports multi-table SQL database into one Clusterpoint database using automagic denormalization.[18]
  • NTSS: Network Traffic Sureveillance System for Lawful Intercept - High-speed capture, store, search and analysis of all Internet traffic for the corporate network.[19][20]
