Blazegraph to showcase scalable software for complex graph and predictive analytics in booth 206 at the NVIDIA GPU Technology Conference

Blazegraph Database

We’re excited to announce our Blazegraph solutions on OpenPOWER, which we expect to deliver faster and more cost-effective solutions for graph and predictive analytics.

Blazegraph, creator of the industry’s first GPU-accelerated high-performance database for large graphs, today announced the company has joined the OpenPOWER Foundation, an open development community based on the POWER microprocessor architecture.

Blazegraph is among a growing roster of technology organizations working collaboratively to build advanced server, networking, storage and acceleration technology. They also are creating industry-leading open source software aimed at delivering more choice, control and flexibility to developers of next-generation, hyperscale and cloud data centers. The group enables POWER hardware and software to be available to open development for the first time, as well as making POWER intellectual property licensable to others, greatly expanding the ecosystem of innovators on the platform.

Blazegraph Database is an open source, high-performance graph database that features robust, scalable and enterprise-class storage with online backup, high-availability and scale-out. It is capable of supporting up to 50 billion edges on a single machine, and can achieve graph application acceleration of between 10x-1,000x, with a graph traversal rate of 32 billion traversed edges per second (GTEPs). By leveraging the power of GPU accelerated computing, Blazegraph Database enable extreme scaling that is thousands of times faster and 40 times more affordable than CPU-based solutions.

“Unlike other big data challenges, memory bandwidth is the bottleneck for large-scale graph and predictive analytics,” said Blazegraph CEO Brad Bebee. “The OpenPOWER platform, with support for NVIDIA Pascal architecture-based GPU accelerators and the NVIDIA NVLink high-speed interconnect, offers superior memory bandwidth. We’re excited to announce our Blazegraph solutions on OpenPOWER, which we expect to deliver faster and more cost-effective solutions for graph and predictive analytics on OpenPOWER.”

“The collaborative design model of the OpenPOWER Foundation is changing the way companies innovate around processor and system technology.” said Calista Redmond, President, OpenPOWER Foundation. “The POWER architecture is purpose-built for big data and cloud. OpenPOWER Foundation members like Blazegraph, innovating on top of the POWER processor, will be able to create new applications that capitalize on emerging workloads.”
