SQream DB

SQream DB is a relational database management system (RDBMS) that uses graphics processing units (GPUs) from Nvidia . SQream DB is designed for big data analytics using the Structured Query Language (SQL). [2]

History

SQream DB is the first product of SQream Technologies Ltd, founded in 2010 by Ami Gal and Kostya Varakin in Tel Aviv , Israel. [3]

SQream DB was first released in 2014 [4] after a partnership with an Orange SA in Silicon Valley . [5] [6] The company claimed Orange SA saved $ 6 million by using SQream in 2014. [7] [8] SQream is a multi-terabyte analytics market. [9]

SQream DB is also the basis for a named GenomeStack, for querying many DNA sequences simultaneously. [10] [11] A $ 7.4M investment of venture capital was announced in June 2015. [12] It is an example of general-purpose computing on graphics processing units , with competitors MapD Technologies and Kinetica . [13]

The company applied for patents, including parallel execution on queries on multi-core processors and speeding up parallel execution on vector processors . [14] [15] [16]

Software and features

The Column-oriented database SQream DB was designed to manage large, fast-growing volumes of data, for compute-intensive queries. The product claims for performance query for very large datasets, on traditional relational database systems.

SQream DB is designed to run on premise or in the cloud [17] .
