MapD builds a big data analytics platform that can query and visualize big data more than 100x faster than other systems. It leverages the massive parallelism of commodity GPUs to execute SQL queries over multibillion row datasets with millisecond response times, and optionally render the results using the native graphics pipeline of the GPUs. Depending on the use case, MapD can be used as a standalone lightning-fast SQL database, with its own visualization frontend (MapD Immerse) for ultra-interactive data exploration, or with third-party visualization tools such as Tableau.
