SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/27/13 -- 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 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 analytics.
"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 secret behind SiSense simplicity and performance is its Elasticube, 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.
