San Francisco, CAJanuary 5, 2017

Kinetica, provider of the fastest, in-memory database accelerated by GPUs, today announced its recognition by ESG in its Delta-V Awards as one of the top twenty companies that accelerated innovation in big data and analytics in 2016.

“Kinetica is honored to be recognized by ESG as a significant industry contributor in big data and analytics,” said Amit Vij, CEO and co-founder, Kinetica. “Kinetica leverages the power of GPUs for unprecedented performance to ingest, explore and visualize streaming data, particularly for use cases where time and location matter. ESG’s recognition is further validation of our proven enterprise scale.”

According to ESG’s Senior Analyst Nik Rouda, “A database built from the ground up using GPUs to address the proliferation of large, complex and streaming data is just what Kinetica has delivered. Speed and scale are the name of the game, but often database benchmark promises look good on paper and then are nowhere to be seen in the real world. Kinetica is a database that delivers real time for real.”

Kinetica empowers organizations to address a wide range of use cases in real time–even with real time visualization, including risk management, anomaly and fraud prevention, resource allocation on the fly, inventory tracking, terrorist and other national security threat tracking, energy generation optimization, and customer engagement improvements.
