OmniSci Platform Overview
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.
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.
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.
Connecting data sources to OmniSci
Develop with OmniSci
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.
