Inxight Launches SmartDiscovery Extraction Server

First commercially available, massively scalable architecture for text analytics in more than 30 languages; server offers high-throughput concept, entity, relation, and event extraction for large data sets

SUNNYVALE, Calif., April 24 -- Inxight(R) Software today announced the general availability of Inxight SmartDiscovery(TM) Extraction Server (SDX), the first commercially available, massively scalable solution for text analytics in more than 30 languages.

This powerful, linearly scalable platform system delivers Inxight's high-fidelity ThingFinder(R) extraction capabilities, reading text to discover the "who," "what," "where," and "when" of each document, enabling publishers, government organizations and enterprises to extract people, companies, places, and other key entities from terabytes of unstructured text.

"The ability for a system to perform large-scale, rapid detection of people, companies, dates, concepts, and other key information trapped in unstructured text is vital, especially for high-demand publishing, government, and ASP applications," said Ian Hersey, Inxight senior vice president of corporate development and strategy, and founder. "These are customers for whom extraction speed and accuracy is paramount. Inxight is pleased to be able to provide the fastest, most accurate extraction on the market in such a massively scalable architecture."

SmartDiscovery Extraction Server was designed from the ground up to fit into today's Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Web services environments. Its configurable security model and high-throughput processing capabilities enable it to deliver the rapid data collection and processing capabilities required for detailed enterprise-class text analytics.

"Being able to scale effortlessly to handle terabytes of data is another key development in Inxight's SmartDiscovery system roadmap, providing a complete end-to-end text analytics solution," Hersey said. "When combined with Inxight's unique StarTree(R), TableLens(R), and TimeWall(TM) visualizations and SmartDiscovery Awareness Server's federated search, clustering, and alerting capabilities, SmartDiscovery Extraction Server reveals trends and intelligence that goes beyond search to deliver the information that plays a critical role in both helping the government fight the war on terror and helping companies gain a competitive edge."


The basic SDX architecture is a horizontally scalable, distributed extraction platform, designed to be deployed successfully in a variety of configurations -- from 4 CPUs to 40,000 CPUs and beyond. New nodes can be added to the running system dynamically to meet demand. Administration of the system (managing distributed nodes, providing configuration parameters, etc.) is controlled through a simple Web-based user interface.

The next version of SDX, scheduled for release this summer, will also incorporate Inxight Summarizer(TM) and Inxight's new Categorizer(TM) product.

Inxight SmartDiscovery Extraction Server is certified on Red Hat Linux ES 3.0 and 4.0, Red Hat Linux AS 3.0, Windows 2003 and Windows XP operating systems.
