NVIDIA + Kinetica

Use NVIDIA GPUs as the engine to power Kinetica's accelerated processing.

Businesses have spent the last decade determining how to store, manage, and query data to drive business decisions. Today’s businesses must unleash the power of AI to transform their data-driven businesses into AI enterprises.

Kinetica’s distributed, in-memory database on NVIDIA DGX-1 and NVIDIA GPUs provides real-time analytics on data in motion and at rest 10-100x faster performance at 1/10 of the cost of traditional systems. NVIDIA and Kinetica together deliver unmatched performance, predictable scalability across multiple high-density nodes, and seamless integration with industry-standard connectors to data sources and applications. Kinetica’s User Defined Functions (UDFs) further deliver the first converged AI and BI workloads accelerated by NVIDIA GPUs.

NVIDIA Platforms

NVIDIA GPU processors can be used on industry-standard servers including those from IBM, Dell, HP, and Cisco.

NVIDIA Tesla K80

The NVIDIA® Tesla® K80 Accelerator dramatically lowers data center costs by delivering exceptional performance with fewer, more powerful servers. It’s engineered to boost throughput in real-world applications by 5-10x, while also saving customers up to 50% for an accelerated data center compared to a CPU-only system.

NVIDIA Tesla P100

NVIDIA Tesla P100 GPU accelerators are the most advanced ever built for the data center. They tap into the new NVIDIA Pascal GPU architecture to deliver the world’s fastest compute node with higher performance than hundreds of slower commodity nodes. Higher performance with fewer, lightning-fast nodes enables data centers to dramatically increase throughput while also saving money. The Tesla P100 is reimagined from silicon to software, crafted with innovation at every level. Each groundbreaking technology delivers a dramatic jump in performance to inspire the creation of the world’s fastest compute node.


The NVIDIA DGX-1 is the first system built with groundbreaking eight NVIDIA Pascal™- powered Tesla® P100 accelerators, interconnected with NVIDIA NVLink™. Pascal was designed as the engine of computers that learn, see, and simulate our world—a world with an infinite appetite for computing.

NVIDIA GPU-accelerated cloud computing

NVIDIA GPU-accelerated cloud computing allows customers to replace hundreds of non-accelerated nodes with powerful GPU-accelerated instances for accelerated analytics workloads. Customers can achieve faster results without massive capital expenditures, un-utilized hardware, and large data transfers while enjoying the 24/7 uptime and scalable performance they have come to expect from NVIDIA Tesla data center GPUs.
