LibrA is an essential component of Huawei's FusionInsight Big Data solution. It provides PB-level enterprise-class data warehousing capabilities, offering the ultimate in performance, reliability, scalability, security, and ease-of-use. Its massively parallel processor (MPP) and non-sharing architecture allow LibrA to scale out automatically, without service interruption or awareness, even in the face of explosive data growth. Customers can use x86 servers to scale out the system without increasing its total cost of ownership (TCO). LibrA leverages parallel computing, mixed row-column storage, and vectorized execution technologies to perform association analysis of trillions of data records in seconds. All of its components are redundant to ensure its enterprise-class reliability and to eliminate single points of failure (SPOF). LibrA also supports real-time full-text data retrieval on the Big Data platform without requiring any additional components.
