What could you do if you could
explore your data 100 times faster?

The Kinetica's vectorized architecture delivers unmatched performance for real-time analysis of massive data sets, particularly for use cases where time and location matter.

High Performance Analytics on Fast-Moving Data

With it's lockless architiecture, Kinetica is a true real-time analytics database that makes data available for query as soon as it arrives. Vectorized processing cuts response on complex analytical queries minutes (or even hours) to less than a second for multi-billion row data sets.

And because Kinetica has the raw horsepower to perform brute-force queries without extensive indexing of data, you'll no longer need to know every question you want to ask of the data before you start exploring it. This makes Kinetica the ideal solution for data discovery projects.

Location-Based Analytics

See the when and where - here and now. Adding location and time dimensions to data makes it significantly more valuable, but much harder to process and analyze.

Kinetica solves this problem with a native geospatial and visualization pipeline that makes it simpler to work with vast sets of geospatial data. The combination of native geospatial object types, specialized geospatial functions, and advanced visualizations leveraging the power of the GPU —makes Kinetica the ideal solution especially when location and time data is important.

Run AI Workloads Alongside BI

User-defined functions (UDFs) enable compute as well as data-processing, within the database.

Before now, organizations typically needed to extract data to specialized environments to take advantage of GPU acceleration for data science workloads, such as machine learning and deep learning. Kinetica now makes it possible for sophisticated data science models to be developed and made available on the same database platform as is used for business analytics.

UDFs and the associated orchestration API enable data to be processed with custom code that can draw on the power of distributed GPUs. UDFs have direct access to CUDA APIs, and can take full advantage of the distributed architecture of Kinetica.

With In-database processing in Kinetica, data-science groups can develop models on the same database platform as business users.

Empower Analysts and Business Users

It’s easy to connect Kinetica to popular visualization tools – such as Tableau, Qlik, PowerBI, and Microstrategy – through Kinetica's ODBC/JDBC driver. Kinetica also provides full SQL query support, free-text search, and visualization tools. Business users can explore massive data sets and uncover insights faster than ever before without having to learn new languages or construct data models.

Businesses across a range of industries benefit from The Kinetica Streaming Data Warehouse


As financial institutions face increasing regulatory requirements, increased competition, and an increase in customer demand, Kinetica offers ways to get faster and more flexible insight into financial operations, customers, and markets. Uses include:

  • Fraud Detection Performing ad-hoc analysis on the volumes and disparate types of data necessary for fraud detection is a challenge for even the most advanced data systems. GPU accelerated compute enables those who model fraud to more quickly explore anomalies and patterns of behavior that signal problems.
  • Regulatory Compliance The ad-hoc query demands of regulatory compliance are frequently slow and cumbersome on the large datasets involved. Kinetica brings brute-force compute power to enable complex queries without the need to pre-index data. Kinetica’s horizontally scalable architecture allows for reporting on a massive scale.
  • Real-time Transaction Analysis Measuring risk, spotting customer behavioral patterns, and discovering upsell opportunities are some of the workloads that are becoming too large and too slow for traditional RDBMS. Kinetica’s ability to ingest and query data at scale offers financial institutions a myriad of ways to cut costs and improve profitability.
