The Ryft ONE delivers value from business insights by analyzing historical and streaming data together at speeds 200X faster than conventional hardware while cutting operational costs by 70 percent

Ryft today unveiled the Ryft ONE, the only commercial 1U platform capable of providing fast and actionable business insights by simultaneously analyzing up to 48 terabytes of historical and streaming data at an unprecedented 10 gigabytes/second or faster. Powered by the Ryft Analytics Cortex, a new massively parallel, hardware-accelerated architecture, the Ryft ONE enables data scientists and business analysts to extract intelligence from data in real time, replacing hundreds of high-end servers and slashing operational costs by 70 percent. A single Ryft ONE, using less power than a hair dryer, can store and analyze the equivalent of the contents of Wikipedia in 4.5 seconds, without any data indexing, preprocessing, tuning or partitioning.

“The loosely coupled, physically distributed compute-and-memory nodes of today’s high-end clusters turn daunting data analytics problems into IO bottlenecks that can slow solution times. The Ryft ONE platform aims to supercharge performance on challenging analytics workloads with a scalable 1U device designed for easy integration into existing server environments,” said Steve Conway, IDC research vice president for high-performance computing and data analysis. “The Ryft ONE is also designed to accelerate both batch and streaming data — a dual requirement more and more user organizations face today.”

“You can’t squeeze the real-time insights you need to run your business from solutions built on decades-old hardware architectures. The performance required to unlock the value of big data demands a new type of architecture that optimizes compute, storage and IO,” said Des Wilson, CEO of Ryft. “The Ryft ONE will shift the market from legacy x86 architectures to a platform purpose-built for real-time analysis. That’s because the Ryft ONE is open and compact like a Linux server but executes like a high-performance computer — beating the performance of hundreds of conventional servers at a fraction of the cost.”

About the Ryft ONE
Years in the making, the Ryft ONE combines breakthroughs in both hardware and software to boost big data analysis with the:

Ryft Analytics Cortex (RAC): Massively parallel, hardware-accelerated compute architecture that speeds historical and streaming data analytics to speeds of 10 gigabytes/second and faster.
Ryft Algorithm Primitives (RAP) Library: Expanding collection of prebuilt algorithm components such as exact search, term frequency and fuzzy search that accelerate the development and execution of applications.
Linux Front-end and Open API: Compliant with open standards to work with a wide range of visualization, scheduling, performance monitoring and systems management tools. Supports popular programming languages such as C/C++, Java, R, Python, Scala and others.
High Performance With High Security: Analyzes SSL encrypted data without added latency to protect sensitive data without sacrificing performance. Data can be stored either encrypted or unencrypted, with no impact to analytics performance.

Performance Benchmarking
Benchmark tests conducted in early 2015 against the highest-performing in-memory solutions showed that a single Ryft ONE outperformed large Spark clusters of 100 to 200 nodes, at a 70 percent operational savings. Performance benchmarks for term frequency, exact search and fuzzy search are provided at ryft.com/products.

Ryft ONE Availability and Resources
The Ryft ONE will be available in early Q2 2015, as a hosted or on-premises solution. For more information on the Ryft Early Access Program, contact a sales specialist at 855-RYFT-ONE or info@ryft.com.
