200 Million Document Milestone

Only a few months ago, DiscoverText’s data ingest counter was steadily moving toward 100 million documents. This week, the software’s document ingest counter will cross the 200 million document line. You can see this for yourself on our homepage. With the weekly addition of powerful new analytical tools, DiscoverText is reinventing the field of online text analytics for researchers, marketers, lawyers, and fortune 500 companies in the U.S. and increasingly around the world. As more researchers, managers, directors and VPs at companies like JetBlue, ESPN, Google, Merck, Nike, Nokia & Facebook begin to experience the power of DiscoverText, the corresponding data use and computational procedures by our users increases exponentially.

We are steadily increasing our data throughput capacity to preserve speed and agility inside our system. Recently, we acquired a new disk array system to provide users with top of the line hardware for performance and reliability.

These hardware upgrades, alongside continual database optimization efforts and the steady addition of new memory, support the SIFTER processing core of DiscoverText.  SIFTER web services allow our users to better leverage the system features. As a result, certain computationally intensive features have become real time offerings. If you have not yet done so, be sure to sign up for a free trial account at DiscoverText.com and email us if you have any questions. We are here to help you get started.
