Inside Big Data

We also heard of a number of new partnerships, alignments and collaborations starting with Ryft, a leader in fast, simple heterogeneous compute solutions, announcing it has partnered with Amazon Web Services to deliver the speed and simplicity of the Ryft ONE to AWS’ F1 customers. Ryft Virtual, a heterogeneous cloud-based version of its core Ryft ONE technology, enables AWS users to get fast, actionable insight from their data at an order of magnitude faster than is possible with current CPU-based infrastructures. With the AWS F1 instance, all organizations can now use the power of heterogeneous computing, and with Ryft Virtual, they get not only the speed but also the incredible ease of use of the Ryft ONE. Amazon’s announcement of the new offering comes at a time when organizations are finally coming to grips with the fact that businesses must embrace heterogeneous computing to solve the problems that today’s fast and varied data create. But when FPGAs are difficult for the average data scientist to understand — let alone use — just having an FPGA-based heterogeneous cloud is not enough. This is why Ryft has partnered with AWS not only to provide the supercharged analytics that companies require but also to deliver a Ryft Virtual application that is as simple as what they currently use.
