A new press release reports, “GPU-powered analytics leader MapD Technologies today announced that it is partnering with IBM Power Systems to deliver unrivaled analytical performance. MapD recently conducted a series of 18 benchmark tests which showed an acceleration range of up to 126 percent for SQL queries running on IBM Power Systems S822LC for HPC servers versus x86 based servers (click here for whitepaper). The results showed an average 65% acceleration over the group of 18 benchmark SQL queries, with an acceleration range from 25%-126% across the group.”

The release goes on, “The benchmarks harness the joint computing power of IBM’s POWER CPUs and NVIDIA® Tesla® P100 graphics processors, showing how customers can now query and analyze billion-row datasets in real-time. The POWER processor is a state of the art CPU that comes with NVLink technology and works together seamlessly with the NVIDIA Tesla P100 GPU. NVLink accelerates CPU-to-GPU analytic pipelines up to 2.5 times compared to systems without NVLink, and that gives businesses far faster insight.”

It continues, “The partnership with IBM extends MapD’s pioneering work using GPUs to query and visualize billions of records with millisecond latency. MapD has also joined the OpenPOWER Foundation, an open development community based on the POWER microprocessor architecture. The OpenPOWER Foundation has more than 300 members, including many large companies developing processes and technologies for the OpenPOWER architecture.”
