The simplest way to understand the power of GPU parallelism is think about how GPUs and CPUs are constructed and how they process tasks. A CPU consists of a few cores optimized for sequential serial processing. A GPU has a massively parallel architecture consisting of thousands of smaller, more efficient cores designed for handling multiple tasks simultaneously. As a result, if you can run your task in parallel you will experience orders of magnitude better performance.
MapD abstracts the GPU level work when it comes to databases and datavisualization. As a result, organizations don’t have to have deep domain expertise in GPUs and how they operate - MapD takes care of that. Simply point to your data and MapD does the rest, harnessing power of GPU parallelism using standard SQL, intuitive, cross-filtered dashboards and custom front ends.
Everything just works, but anywhere from 100 to 1,000 times faster.
Harness the parallel power of nearly 50,000 cores per server and make even the most complex SQL instant.
Next generation memory technology allows MapD to scan database tables at rates measured in terabytes per second.
State-of-the-art graphics processing
MapD leverages the graphics pipeline of the GPUs to allow visualization of query results in staggering detail.
