SQream DB is a high-speed GPU-based columnar SQL database designed to uniquely address the speed, scalability and efficiency hurdles that face big data analytics. It is capable of processing and analyzing high volumes of data, while delivering a high cost/performance ratio. The database employs aggressive compression procedures resulting in savings in storage and speed of query execution. It compresses the power of a full-rack database machine into a single standard server, delivering cost-effective performance for big data. No data modeling is needed, no new DBA is required, and no new skills need to be acquired. Third party ETL and BI tools may be connected via standard ODBC/JDBC connections.
