GPU database – designed from the ground up
to deliver truly real-time insights

GPU acceleration changes the game for fast data analytics, for location-based analytics and for predictive analytics

GPU Processor

GPUs are designed around thousands of small, efficient cores that are well suited to performing repeated similar instructions in parallel. This makes them well-suited to the compute-intensive workloads required of large data sets.
Some of the latest high performance GPUs from NVIDIA feature over 4,000 cores, versus 16 to 32 cores per typical CPU-based device.
GPU cores crunch data far more efficiently and quickly than CPUs—which process data sequentially.
Why Another Database? PLAY

So much raw compute power, you won't need to think about indexing, partitioning or downsampling!

Icon

Very Low Latency

With less to index, data is available immediately after it is written. No more waiting for data structures to be updated before the data can be returned in queries.

Icon

Ask any question

Since there is no need to prepare the schema before it can be explored, business analysts have complete flexibility and freedom for data discovery projects.

Icon

Linear Scale out

With simpler data structures, the database scales in proportion to the size of the data. This leads to smaller and more predictable hardware costs.

Did we mention speed?

10x-100x faster than even the most advanced in-memory databases

In tests, Kinetica returns results for advanced analytical queries on billions of rows of data in well under a second.

Scale out on industry-standard hardware

The efficiencies of Kinetica's GPU architecture typically result in hardware costs that are 110 that of other in-memory databases.

As datasets grow, Kinetica is able to scale out across multiple nodes. Kinetica leverages the raw compute power of the GPU to break open processing bottlenecks and reduce reliance on indexes. In addition to performance benefits, customers experience dramatic efficiency gains. Kinetica sometimes requires just 1⁄10 of the hardware and 1⁄20 of the power when compared to other in-memory analytics solutions.

A Single Database for BI, AI, and Geospatial Workloads

Kinetica provides a range of methods for data scientists, analysts, and line of business users to perform sophisticated analytics with large datasets on a single converged platform.

Icon

Write Queries in SQL

Kinetica has broad support for SQL interaction through its ODBC connector. This makes it easy for analysts to be productive quickly, while data-scientists and developers can take advantage of the native REST API or a variety of connectors.

Use with Popular BI Tools

Connect popular BI tools such as Tableau and PowerBI to Kinetica for real-time analytics using the ODBC/JDBC connector. Or use open source front-end visualization tools such as Kibana, Superset or Kinetica's own Reveal framework

 

Icon

Full Text Search

Full text search functionality is supported by Natural Language Processing (NLP) Full result sets can be returned or rendered on a map. Results aren’t limited to the first 10, 20 or 30 pages of relevant information.

Icon

Geospatial Operations

Kinetica has native support for geospatial objects (points, shapes, tracks) and comes with a suite of geospatial functions for filtering data by area, by track, custom shapes and more. Spatial operations are exponentially faster for massive datasets than traditional systems.
Location-Based Analytics »

Icon

Visualization Pipeline

Kinetica's OpenGL rendering pipeline is capable of drawing massive point datasets as WMS layers for use over maps. Kinetica can also generate heatmaps, scatterplots and even video. Native server-side rendering makes it possible to plot millions of points without bandwidth constraints.

Power and capability for developers and administrators

Ingest from multiple sources

Pre-built connectors for Apache Kafka, Apache NiFi, Apache Spark, Spark Streaming, Apache Storm, and ODBC/JDBC make it simple to ingest data from a wide range of data sources.
See Examples »

Scale out

Kinetica provides linear scalability on industry standard hardware. Data replication is handled for high availability. Sharding can be done automatically, or specified and optimized by the user.

Comprehensive APIs

Kinetica can easily be interacted with via RESTful HTTP endpoints. Supports both JSON and Avro serialization. Open source native language bindings can be found for Java, Python, Javascript, and C++. More »

Architecture w/UDFs

Advanced Analytics with In-Database Processing

User-defined functions (UDFs) enable compute, as well as data processing, within the database. Kinetica uniquely offers such functionality on a database that fully utilizes the parallel compute power of the GPU.

Kinetica Reveal : In-Built BI & Visualization Tools

Bring your own BI dashboard, or take advantage of Kinetica 'Reveal' — a web-based visualization framework that makes it easy to slice, dice, and visualize data in Kinetica. Reveal works with Kinetica's native geospatial visualization pipeline to make it possible to see changes across large datasets as the underlying data or queries change.

  • Allow users to easily and intuitively visualize datasets, and share interactive dashboards
  • Visualize billions of data points on a map, filter and query them with real-time response.
  • Take advantage of a wide gamut of geospatial visualization renderers such as feature, class break, heat maps, and geofencing.
