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). 
SQream DB is the first product of SQream Technologies Ltd, founded in 2010 by Ami Gal and Kostya Varakin in Tel Aviv , Israel. 
SQream DB was first released in 2014  after a partnership with an Orange SA in Silicon Valley .   The company claimed Orange SA saved $ 6 million by using SQream in 2014.   SQream is a multi-terabyte analytics market. 
SQream DB is also the basis for a named GenomeStack, for querying many DNA sequences simultaneously.   A $ 7.4M investment of venture capital was announced in June 2015.  It is an example of general-purpose computing on graphics processing units , with competitors MapD Technologies and Kinetica . 
The company applied for patents, including parallel execution on queries on multi-core processors and speeding up parallel execution on vector processors .   
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  .
