OmniSci on IBM Power Systems

As the torrent of big data flows in from more sources, in greater volumes, analysts and data scientists are increasingly frustrated with lack of performance from mainstream analytics tools that were designed in a past era. OmniSci on IBM Power Systems allows our users to exercise unbounded curiosity when exploring data. As the pioneer in GPU-accelerated analytics, the OmniSci platform is used to find insights in data beyond the limits of mainstream CPU-based analytics tools.

OmniSci, IBM, and Cirrascale Cloud Services have teamed up to help customer's experience the OmniSci difference on IBM Power Systems in the cloud.

Key Benefits of OmniSci

Open Source

It’s no accident that the most important Big Data platforms are open source. Open source is the fastest path to innovation. OmniSciDB open source invites that innovation, accelerates our collaboration for end-to-end data science pipelines on the GPU and protects our customers from locking themselves into one approach.

Interactive Real-Time Analytics

The journey towards discovery is not linear. Nor should it be one of mindless meandering. We want everyone to be curious again and explore any hypothesis–to ask question upon question, without curiosity-defeating latency. So we designed a platform that smooths all the obstacles to exploration, making you feel like you are one with your data.

Innovation in GPU Computing

OmniSci radically evolves analytics through GPU acceleration. OmniSciDB is the first SQL engine to natively harness GPU computing for analytics. OmniSci was the first to deliver truly interactive, real-time analytics and visual interaction with multi-billion row data sets, and the first to deliver geo data calculations and server-side rendering of polygons on GPUs.

Scalability and High Availability

When your data grows, your need for analytical speed will not diminish. You cannot settle for slow performance at scale. OmniSciDB is future-proof, with linear scaling of hardware, high availability across many servers, and a cloud SaaS option to offload peak demand or as a replacement for analytics platforms in your the data center.

Fastest Time to Value

Software deployment and data ingestion are necessary steps to delivering a platform that changes how you do analytics. We want you to get that value immediately, so we created a real time analytical platform that makes implementation, user adoption, and data ingestion easy. OmniSci gives you immediate value for your investment.

Revolutionary Cloud Services

Cirrascale offers flat-rate weekly and monthly billing so you know what you are going to pay upfront (no supplemental bills). We stay away from charging ingress or egress fees on data. These are dedicated servers, no virtualization, so you get ALL THE RESOURCES you pay for. We also offer multi-month and volume discounts helping you save even more.

Interested in a FREE TRIAL?

Some things are annoyingly slow. The bathroom line at a music festival, rush hour traffic, deplaning after a long flight. Other things, like the technology you use to process data, blow right past annoying and actually hinder your ability to move your business forward. We get it. Cirrascale Cloud Services has teamed up with OmniSci to offer trials for potential customers to see the difference GPU’s can have in speeding up database querying and visualization.

If you would like to take advantage of this free one week trial to test OmniSci on IBM Power, complete the form to the right and we'll touch base with you within 48 hours to set up your trial timeline as well as a quick call to discuss prepping/uploading data and provide tips to use the software. The system is dedicated to you during the trial, so they are limited on a first come, first served, but we'll do everything we can to help you get started quickly.
