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

Gartner Names Ryft a Cool Vendor in DBMS for 2016; Highlights FPGA-based Appliances as 1 of 10 Strategic Technology Trends for 2016

Each year, Gartner research analysts select only a handful of innovative and imaginative companies from hundreds of technology companies for the prestigious Gartner Cool Vendors list. This week Ryft was honored to be named a Gartner Cool Vendor in DBMS for 2016 for creating products that enable converged SSD-based Network Attached Storage (NAS) and hybrid FPGA/x86 […] 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

On-Demand Webinar: Harness IoT Data at the Edge for Real-Time Insights

If you missed the IoT Slam in December or just wanted to review the content, this should come as good news. We’re opening up the Ryft archives from late last year to make Pat McGarry’s keynote session, “Harnessing the Flood of IoT Data with Heterogeneous Computing at the Edge,” available with no fees or registration […] Read More

Staying Above Water with Big Data Analytics Operational Costs

There’s no question, the holy grail of big data analytics is performance—getting actionable insights from your data in real time without time-consuming bottlenecks. Increased performance that gives fast insight for smarter business decisions also has the benefit of increasing the big data ROI, which is necessary for continued executive buy-in. To increase those returns even […] Read More

2015 IoT Slam Keynote: Harnessing the Flood of IoT Data with Heterogeneous Computing at the Edge

Gaining fast value from data is critical to winning in business, and the exponentially increasing amount of Internet of Things (IoT) sensor data has made this even more important for a successful business. IoT data loses value when it can’t be analyzed fast enough, and that means businesses need to take real-time analytics closer to […] Read More
