Thank you Ocient – Enabling rapid analysis and management of the world’s largest datasets.

Structured data volume is exploding and outpacing current analysis tools. Worldwide structured datasets are growing 800% over the next 5 years. Organizations that can harness the untapped power of very large datasets, at scale and at speed, stand to gain tremendous advantages.

Current Big Data technologies are built for organizations with datasets measured in terabytes. Ocient’s focus is on much larger datasets — measured in tens of terabytes, petabytes, or exabytes — with trillions or quadrillions of rows.

Current Big Data platforms do not offer satisfactory ingress or query processing speeds for such datasets.We’re focused on ingressing billions of rows per second, and filtering and computing aggregate results at rates up to trillions of rows per second.

Ocient has rethought the entire architecture of data analysis systems based upon modern high-performance, low-cost hardware in a massively parallel architecture with Speed at Scale as our focus.
