SiSense "10X10X10 Challenge" Shatters Record at Strata Big Data Conference
SANTA CLARA, CA, Feb 26, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
SiSense, the Big Data Analytics Company, is showcasing the record
breaking performance of its Prism(TM) solution by analyzing 10
Terabytes in 10 seconds, on a single server node at the O'Reilly
Strata Big Data Conference this week (Booth P3).
This new record demonstrates how SiSense technology can analyze 100
times more data than traditional in-memory solutions, at a fraction
of the cost, and how it democratizes Big Data Analytics by providing
businesses of all sizes with everything they need in one package. The
server used for this performance is an "off-the-shelf" Dell PowerEdge
R720 Rack Server, and SiSense shows it can analyze on one node what
normally requires 20 nodes.
The company is also a finalist in the conference's "Startup Showcase"
competition taking place Tuesday, Feb. 26 at 6:00pm PST.
"The majority of businesses struggle with Terabytes of Data, not
Petabytes. And they shouldn't have to worry about setting up complex
clusters and distributed environments that were initially designed
for Petabyte scale," says Amit Bendov, SiSense CEO. "With this
record, we show that the answer can be very simple: our software
provides the scale they need on one server and it contains the entire
solution, in one package; from the database to beautiful
visualizations on the web." Bendov continues: "We want to show that
Data Analytics is not just reserved for the few companies that can
afford complex systems. We aim to make Big Data Analytics
approachable and simple for all."
SiSense Secret Sauce
The secret is SiSense's unique technology, the
ElastiCube(TM), a high-performance analytical database that leverages
the latest innovation in hardware to maximize machine RAM and CPU
use. "The ElastiCube is exceptionally efficient at harnessing machine
capacity that typically goes untapped," says Bendov.
Wayne Eckerson, an industry thought leader and the founder of BI
Leadership Research highlights: "One of the key innovations I was
impressed with, is the way SiSense combines vectorization, in-memory
and columnar algebra to boost query performance -- this is a very
different and new approach."
SiSense Prism's columnar data structure and compression algorithms
provide great storage improvements. Its compiler runs inside the CPU
and inside the machine control unit, and decides in real-time how to
best execute queries -- either in RAM, Disk, or both. SiSense also
uses "vectorization," a process that refers to a machine's ability to
apply the same operation to multiple pieces of data simultaneously,
resulting in immediate performance gains.
A Big Data Analytics Revolution
"Big Data Analytics is in need of a
Revolution. Two weeks ago, we organized an event that included
customers and companies of all sizes from Wix to Facebook to Netflix,
and SurveyMonkey. Regardless of their size, companies consistently
complain about the same issue: Big Data Analytics is too
complicated," said Bendov.
SiSense boasts a fast-growing list of customers, spanning across 48
countries. It includes very large companies like Merck, ESPN, and
NASA to Silicon Valley icons like Yahoo! or Fusion-IO, to small
companies like Uber or Fiverr. SiSense Prism can be deployed
on-premises or in the cloud.
