YarcData's Urika Shows Big Data is More than Hadoop and Data Warehouses (Carl Claunch, Sept 11, 2012)
YarcData's Urika™: in-memory appliance for real-time graph analyticsGraph of the strongest linkages between two genes and other related genes. The Urika™ appliance was created to transform Big Data into meaningful information – in real time – by discovering unknown relationships. How do we do what other technologies can't?
It starts with a powerful graph analytics hardware platform purpose-built to solve Big Data graph problems. Imagine holding 512 terabytes in memory – Urika can. With its large shared memory and massive multithreading, the platform exploits decades of Cray's high performance computing expertise and offers unmatched real-time performance and scalability.
Urika's graph analytics database supports ad hoc queries, pattern-based searches, and inferencing – even on highly dynamic data sets – to uncover important relationships and previously unknown patterns. It can be continuously updated through the addition of new sources of data or updates to existing sources and can support consequent inference of new relationships as part of an ongoing cycle.
Urika's graph analytics tools and industry-standard interfaces make Urika easy to integrate and avoids lock-in, enabling re-use of existing IT skills and enterprise resources, such as data warehouses and Hadoop clusters whose analytics workflow is simplified by Urika's high speed graph processing. Urika is datacenter ready so it's easy to bring into your existing environment. And subscription pricing lets you begin gaining insights right away without a big hit to your capital budget.
It's the difference between business as usual and game-changing breakthroughs, and all of it happens in real time to enhance and accelerate your current business processes.
