SiSense Wins "Startup Showcase" Audience Choice Award at Strata

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 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™, 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.

SiSense Prism provides everything a business needs to succeed with Big Data Analytics:

  • Ability to analyze 100x more data than RAM based in-memory solutions
  • Can store and query tens of billions of rows of data
  • Runs on commodity, "off-the-shelf" hardware
  • Provides automatic extraction ("ETL") from all major databases including Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL, PostgreSQL and Intuit QuickBase, and applications like Salesforce.com, Google Adwords, Google Analytics, Google Spreadsheets, Zendesk and Intuit QuickBooks, and data from Hadoop/Hive
  • Comes with Out-of-The-Box Web based visualizations based on HTML 5 and JavaScript

Every day we read jaw-dropping stats on the explosion of data. We allocate significant resources to harness and better understand it. We build businesses around it. But we’ve only just begun. For big payoffs in Big Data, CIOs are turning to cognitive computing. Cognitive computing’s ability to securely extract insights, understand natural language, and get smarter each time it’s used is the next, logical step for Big Data.
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!

While traditional SAN-based clusters are not possible in these environments, SANless cluste...
Hardware will never be more valuable than on the day it hits your loading dock. Each day new servers are not deployed to production the business is losing money. While Moore's Law is typically cited to explain the exponential density growth of chips, a critical consequence of this is rapid depreciation of servers.
