X-IO Adds New GPU Database Provider to its Axellio Edge Computing Platform
Storage provider X-IO Technologies and GPU database developer SQream have announced collaboration efforts to deliver a complete GPU-based edge computing solution with database and storage together in a converged appliance for rapid data analytics of massive datasets. 

The combination integrates X-IO's Axellio edge computing platform with SQream to provide access to data insights the two companies claim are not found in current MPP and cloud computing approaches. Enterprises can use SQream DB on Axellio with business intelligence tools like Tableau.   

SQream claims business users can ask more questions about more data, without limiting the scope, cutting down, aggregating or forcing DBAs to remodel the database. This allows users to expand their query windows from weeks to years to find trends, query trillions of rows of data and get results faster.

SQream DB and the X-IO Axellio Edge Micro-Datacenter platform were integrated to perform benchmarks on hundreds of terabytes, resulting in fast analysis and short query times. When testing with a single node of the 2-node Axellio solution on NVIDIA Tesla GPUs, SQream claimed it achieved benchmark results of 11.5 TB per hour. Tests showed ingesting and analyzing up to 1PB, and queries ran up to 2.5 times faster than other flash-based hardware solutions. Data rates were consistent at 3.2GB/s per GPU.   

"The combination of SQream DB and Axellio represents a leap forward in offering enterprises more resources to better and more quickly understand their business and give them an edge over the competition," said SQream CEO Ami Gal. "Together, organizations are able to analyze even larger data stores, gaining new insights faster, at much lower cost and in a green solution that requires less hardware and energy resources to maintain the systems."

X-IO claims the Axellio edge computing platform in a 2U form factor can be easily deployed and operational in less time and effort than traditional solutions while offering headroom to handle current quantities and grow with data needs.

The platform is designed for extreme data processing requirements where the speed of the answer is key for generating value and insight. By introducing NVIDIA Tesla P100 GPUs, a single Axellio system processes data at teraflop speeds and gigabytes per second.
