SiSense Wins "Startup Showcase" Audience Choice Award at Strata
SANTA CLARA, CA, Feb 27, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
SiSense, the Big Data Analytics Company, won the Audience Choice
Award last night at the O'Reilly Strata conference "Startup Showcase"
with its record-breaking ability to analyze billions of rows of data
in a flash. The company will continue to showcase this record for the
rest of the week at Strata (booth P3).
CTO Eldad Farkash demonstrated the power of SiSense Prism(TM) by
analyzing 10TB of data in 10 seconds installed on a single node on a
standard Dell Server, breaking the barriers of traditional in-memory
"We are thrilled to win the audience choice award," said Farkash.
"Our goal is to level the playing field so that businesses of all
sizes can access analytics on a massive scale. SiSense's Prism
solution can do on one node what others require an expensive clusters
of 20 servers."
"The majority of businesses use 1-30 TB of data and now, for the
first time, they can work with data at scale, without having to worry
about out-of-memory issues or complex integration limitations," says
Amit Bendov, SiSense CEO. "Our software combines everything
businesses of all sizes need to succeed in one package -- from the
database to beautiful visualizations on the web. With this new
record, we are proving that Big Data Analytics is not just reserved
for companies with large budgets."
The secret behind SiSense simplicity and performance is its
Elasticube(TM), a high-performance analytical database which
leverages the latest innovation in hardware to maximize machine RAM,
CPU, and Disk use. 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 uses "vectorization," a process that refers to
a machine's ability to apply the same operation to multiple pieces of
data simultaneously, resulting in 10X performance gains.
Companies from 48 countries around the globe -- from global brands
like Merck, ESPN, and NASA to hot startups like Uber and Wix --
leverage SiSense technology to interpret mass quantities of data from
variable data sets and multiple sources. SiSense Prism can be
deployed on-premises or in the cloud.
