How they describe themselves: MapD is a next-generation database and visualization layer that harnesses the parallel power of GPUs to explore multi-billion row datasets in milliseconds.
By combining a purpose-built GPU database with a powerful visualization layer, MapD is able to deliver immersive, instantaneous analytics on datasets previously considered too large to explore interactively.
The speed and scope of MapD’s solutions enable organizations to compete more effectively, to solve more complex problems and to manage operational risk more comprehensively.
Our technology is particularly well-suited for financial services where those organizations place a premium on speed at scale.
How they describe their product/innovation: MapD will demonstrate the world’s fastest data exploration platform. The solution has two components, a GPU-powered database and the Immerse visualization engine.
The MapD database can run across multiple GPUs allowing for analysis of multi-billion-row datasets by multiple simultaneous users. The database supports SQL and can be queried in the console, via bindings to major programming languages, or via ODBC.
The Immerse visualization engine leverages GPUs to render billions of points on the frontend via an innovative hybrid approach that all but eliminates the network bottleneck found in most systems.
Together, the platform can query & render billions of rows of data in milliseconds, dramatically speeding insight discovery.
