Software architects know there’s always a bottleneck somewhere. Sometimes, it’s the storage; other times, the compute; often the operating system; and in the era of cloud, the network presents new challenges. That’s where a ‘direct data accelerator’ comes in handy: a high-speed interconnect that optimizes the path through all of these layers, and by-passes main memory to connect CPUs and storage directly. Doing this eliminates the need to stage data in memory, avoids wasted CPU cycles and frees memory for queries resulting in lower latency and higher performance.

Register for this Briefing Room to hear Analyst Yves Mulkers explain why this novel architecture is revolutionizing the speed, cost and viability of data warehousing. He’ll be joined by Yellowbrick CTO Mark Cusack who will detail the component parts of a cloud-native data warehouse, including the importance of storing data in columnar format, which is optimized for fast parallel processing. The event will be moderated by Bloor Group CEO Eric Kavanagh, who will explain why this array of technologies makes the ‘price-performance’ right.
