We love enriching lives, serving our community and helping our clients grow
In this session, we will introduce you to one of the latest technology trends in real-time data processing, deep learning, and data discovery. NVIDIA will start by walking us through the rise of the GPU (Graphic Processing Unit) in the enterprise and the benefits of using this type of technology vs. the traditional CPU. Then Eric Mizell will demonstrate the power & real-time processing capabilities of the GPU-accelerated database, exploring how this technology can be used to solve real-world business & analytics problems for all types of data in motion. Some of the use-cases discussions will include how this technology integrates with popular open source solutions like Kafka, Apache NiFi, H2O, Hadoop to create Hyper-converged real-time data infrastructure; he will also a provide comparison to traditional EDW, MPP type solution and in-memory databases like SAP Hana or Oracle TimesTen.
There will be some live demonstrations that are part of this session where geospatial, weather, social media, retail and other data sets will be processed & visualized in real-time to show the power and unparalleled raw processing power of these technologies.
