We have rebranded MapD to now be known as OmniSci™.
Learn why GPUs are the future for general purpose analytics.
Today we are excited to launch MapD Cloud. Now, anyone can start benefiting from the power of MapD’s GPU-accelerated analytics platform.
I asked the audience a pressing question at the Quandl Alternative Data Conference last week: "How many of you know you can do more with GPUs than just play Doom or Quake?" The crowd laughed as they raised their hands. The word is getting out. GPUs aren't just for video games anymore. They've already revolutionized AI. Now they're transforming analytics.
One of the things we are most excited about as a newly open source company is the potential to help kickstart a larger ecosystem of GPU computing. This is why we are particularly excited about our work with Continuum Analytics and H2O.ai to found the GPU Open Analytics Initiative (GOAI) and its first project, the GPU Data Frame (GDF), as our first step toward an open ecosystem of end-to-end GPU computing.
Since starting work on MapD more than five years ago while taking a database course at MIT, I had always dreamed of making the project open source. It is thus with great pleasure to announce that today our company is open sourcing the MapD Core database and associated visualization libraries, effective immediately.
Today I’m proud to announce that MapD Technologies has secured $25M in funding in a Series B round lead by New Enterprise Associates (NEA) with participation from NVIDIA, Vanedge Capital, and Verizon Ventures.
2016 was a pretty amazing year for MapD. Not only did we launch our company with the announcement of our A Round of funding in late March, but we were able to steadily build on that event throughout the year, culminating in the release of our 2.0 version of the product just nine months later.
