While Twitter, Facebook and Snapchat garner the headlines, the explosion in data today is driven as much by machines as by humans.
Within machine data lies the single source of truth of customer activity, users, transactions, applications, servers, mobile devices and networks. Machine data is surprisingly dimensional. It includes configurations, API calls, change events, diagnostic commands, call detail records and sensor data from industrial systems and more.
Dimensionality, along with stunning volume and velocity confound traditional approaches to understand what is happening. CPU-powered solutions have bogged down in the face of this new challenge constraining the ability for organizations to diagnose service problems, thwart threats, understand the health and performance of networks and equipment and to comply with regulations.
The solution for such complex queries is not more servers, the solution is in different types of servers. Innovative organizations are turning to GPUs to solve their mission critical machine data tasks. MapD leverages just such hardware to dramatically accelerate the log analytics and exploration process - up to 1000x times faster than legacy CPU architectures.
