We present TARGIT’s Xbone memory-based analytics server and define the concept of an Inverted Data Warehouse (IDW). We demonstrate the high-performance analytics properties of this particular design, as well as its resistance to failures. Additionally, we present a large scale solution in which TARGIT Xbone and IDW are implemented incorporating Google search data. The solution is used for so-called Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and can reveal interesting information about Google’s algorithmic behavior on specific searches. Finally, we demonstrate the combined TARGIT Xbone and IDW to be very cost-effective and thus available to small enterprises that would normally not benefit from Big Data analytics.
