Outperforms Legacy Sort Tools by Orders of Magnitude

Any company attempting to do real-time analytics soon discovers that 80% of its compute issues involve executing classic data integration tasks at the appropriate scale and speed—and within a reasonable budget. - Ron Indeck, VelociData’s President

VelociData, provider of the world’s fastest solutions for data transformation and data quality, today announced a new product suite that delivers million-row-per-second execution of critical data sort functions—out-performing traditional legacy tools by orders of magnitude.

This wire speed performance dramatically changes the game for Big Data by eliminating the intake bottlenecks that have historically been a primary impediment to true real-time analytics.

VelociData’s million-row-per-second sort speed stands in stark contrast to commonly used tools. In comparison, a leading sort vendor promotes their ability to process 4 to 8 million rows of data in 30 minutes—which is only 4,400 and 7,800 rows per second.

“With this remarkable performance—a billion rows of data at nearly one million rows per second—inbound datasets, even large ones, can be sorted as fast as they arrive,” said Robin Bloor of The Bloor Group. “By turning its attention to this essential Big Data function, VelociData is offering yet another extremely powerful, easy-to-deploy accelerated capability to the enterprise.”

Sort functions play an essential role in data warehousing and analytic environments. By dramatically improving sort performance, the VelociData solution enables IT to deliver accurate, complete answers to the business faster than ever.

VelociData’s unprecedented sorting speed results from a purpose-built, micro-supercomputing platform that uniquely leverages a combination of CPU, GPU and FPGA processors. By dedicating specially configured processor logic to sort execution, VelociData appliances achieve game-changing performance.

VelociData solutions easily integrate into existing infrastructures and do not require complex coding skills. In addition, VelociData’s subscription pricing model enables customers to achieve these results without burdensome capital investment or risk.

“Any company attempting to do real-time analytics on Big Data soon discovers that 80% of its compute issues involve executing classic data integration tasks at the appropriate scale and speed—and within a reasonable budget,” said Ron Indeck, VelociData’s President and CTO. “Only VelociData addresses these issues as quickly, easily and effectively as customers need them to be met.”

Qualifying organizations can take advantage of VelociData’s “Prove the Value” challenge, which allows them to test a VelociData solution with their own data in their own environment to see within hours exactly how dramatically it accelerates performance—and how simple implementation really is.
