Why MapD is Taking the Data Science World by Storm
The MapD analytics platform leverages the parallelism of GPUs to achieve orders-of-magnitude speedups over CPU solutions, powering exploration of big datasets with near zero-latency.
MapD first scales up to multiple GPUs within a server and then out to multiple servers in a cluster for record-beating performance without the large footprint required by CPU-only solutions.
Lightning fast queries are only part of the story—MapD harnesses the graphics pipeline of the GPU to create stunning, powerful visualizations of high-cardinality datasets.
MapD supports SQL natively and provides industry standard connectors, making it easy to incorporate the platform into your existing analytics workflow.
