OmniSci Platform Overview

OmniSci is a breakthrough analytics platform originating from research at MIT. Harnessing the massive parallelism of modern CPU and GPU hardware, OmniSci allows users to interactively query, visualize, and power data science workflows over billions of records.

Accelerated Analytics Platform

The OmniSci platform is designed to overcome the scalability and performance limitations of legacy analytics tools faced with the scale, velocity and location attributes of today’s big datasets. Those tools are collapsing, becoming too slow and too hardware-intensive to be effective in big data analytics. OmniSci is a breakthrough technology, originating from MIT, designed to leverage the massively parallel processing of GPUs alongside traditional CPU compute, for extraordinary performance at scale.


Open source SQL engine

The foundation of the platform is OmniSciDB, the world’s fastest open-source, analytics database. OmniSciDB harnesses the power of GPUs and CPUs and returns SQL query results in milliseconds, even on tables with many billions of rows. OmniSciDB delivers that extreme big data analytics performance with a combination of support for native SQL, rapid query compilation, query vectorization and advanced three-tier memory management.

OmniSci Render

Server-side visual rendering

OmniSci Render is a server-side engine designed for rendering pointmap, scatterplot and polygon visualizations of massive datasets. This gives users zero-latency, exploratory interaction with complex visualizations, something never before possible. For geospatial visualization, the Vega rendering engine API allows users to visualize up to billions of points, lines, or polygons.

OmniSci Immerse

Interactive visual analytics

OmniSci Immerse is a web-based data visualization interface, leveraging the accelerated speed and rendering capabilities of OmniSciDB and OmniSci Render for unparalleled visual interaction. OmniSci Immerse is incredibly intuitive and easy to use, providing standard visualizations, such as line, bar, and pie charts, as well as complex data visualizations, such as geo-point maps, geo heat maps, choropleths, and scatter plots. Dashboards automatically cross-filter when interacting with data, and refresh with zero latency.

Data Integration

Connecting data sources to OmniSci

OmniSci open sourced the OmniSciDB SQL engine to make it easy and effortless for users and developers to accelerate analytics and data science workloads. OmniSciDB is available on GitHub under the Apache 2.0 license, alongside other components like a Python interface (pymapd) and JavaScript infrastructure (omnisci-connector, omnisci-charting), making OmniSci the leader in open source accelerated analytics.

Build and connect applications to OmniSci

Because OmniSciDB is open-source, many individual developers and technology vendors are choosing to connect to OmniSciDB or OmniSci Render for SQL acceleration and visual rendering. OmniSci is also a founder of the GPU Open Analytics Initiative (GOAI), whose mission is to enable data scientists to rapidly and efficiently pass data between analytics processes and machine learning model training processes, without the data leaving GPUs.
