Blazegraph is exactly the kind of engine that can open up this field of large-scale graph data analytics. Blazegraph can analyze graph data with millions, billions and even trillions of edges in the graph, processing billions of edges in milliseconds.

Blazegraph, creator of the industry’s first GPU-accelerated high-performance database for large graphs, has been named as one of the “10 Companies and Technologies to Watch in 2016” by The Bloor Group. The Austin, Texas-based independent enterprise software industry research firm praised Blazegraph’s leadership in the nascent market for graph data analytics.

The Bloor Group’s 2016 list features companies and technologies that are distinctive, innovative and in line with what the analysts consider to be the general direction of the IT industry. Blazegraph DB is the only graph database solution included in this year’s list. Founded in 2009, The Bloor Group provides detailed analysis of today’s enterprise software industry.

“Blazegraph is exactly the kind of engine that can open up this field of large-scale graph data analytics,” said Robin Bloor, chief analyst at The Bloor Group, a renowned expert on data and information management and creator of the Information-Oriented Architecture. “Blazegraph can analyze graph data with millions, billions and even trillions of edges in the graph, processing billions of edges in milliseconds. The product gets its remarkable speed from its ability to exploit GPU technology.”

Blazegraph DB is an ultra-scalable, high-performance graph database with support for the Blueprints and RDF/SPARQL APIs, capable of supporting up to 50 billion edges on a single machine. The solution is in use at several Fortune 500 companies, government agencies and other organizations, including AutoDesk, DARPA, EMC, Wikimedia Foundation and Yahoo7. Last month, the company extended its product line with the introduction of Blazegraph GPU and Blazegraph DASL, which leverage the Blazegraph’s patent-pending technology for making NVIDIA GPUs accessible for graph and machine learning applications.

“Companies are facing a deluge of data, which presents significant challenges for ongoing exploration and discovery of data. With Blazegraph and our ability to leverage GPUs, we are able to deliver graph analytics 100 times faster and 40 times less expensive than CPU-based solutions,” said Brad Bebee, Blazegraph’s CEO. “We are honored to be acknowledged by The Bloor Group for our innovations.”
