Finally, Fast, Simple Data Discovery in the Cloud: Amazon Web Services Debuts FPGA-Based Heterogeneous Compute With Ryft Virtual Analytics

Running complex analytics against massive amounts of all types of data—legacy, streaming, structured, semistructured and unstructured—is a difficult challenge.  At Ryft, we’ve blazed the trail to solve this struggle with FPGA/x86 heterogeneous compute accelerators that eliminate data preparation latency and make data discovery fast and simple. But until now, only companies willing to modernize their […] Read More

Transforming High Performance Analytics: Eliminate Big Data Gridlock to Deliver Real-time Insights at the Edge, in the Data Center and in the Cloud

Every analyst knows that data preparation steps like ETL and indexing add significant latency to the analytics process. But until now, those steps were necessary to normalize data to speed and scale analytics. In part three of this series on transforming high performance analytics (see part 1 and part 2), we’ll show you how the […] Read More

Transforming High Performance Analytics: Converged Storage and Compute Powered by FPGAs Unlocks 100X Faster Analytics

In the new era of fast data, we must free analytic performance from the prison of x86 and GPU sequential processors, which are architecturally incapable of scaling to analyze and identify trends and anomalies in massive quantities of data. Don’t get me wrong—these processors have their place, but most CPU and GPU clusters max out […] Read More

Transforming High Performance Analytics: How Current Network Infrastructures Are Creating Big Data Gridlock

Before data can be used to inform decisions, it must be converted into actionable intelligence through what was once a complex and drawn-out multistep process called the data pipeline. Each of the steps in a typical data pipeline might add an hour, many hours, a day or even a week of latency to the process. […] Read More

Outsmarting Google Search: Making Fuzzy Search Fast and Easy Without Indexing

Search is easy, right? It can be, if you know exactly what you’re looking for, or if your data set is small, clean and static enough to index often. That’s not the reality for organizations competing in a global marketplace that runs on data insights. Data comes at you fast and furious, and it does […] Read More
