Swarm64 releases Swarm64 DA to empower real-time analytics for high-velocity data

Posted in News

New Swarm64 DA with Intel® FPGA technology delivers real-time processing of one million records per second in analytic database applications.

Swarm64, provider of the scalable data accelerator (SDA), enabling relational databases to perform real-time big data analytics, demonstrated its technology at M|17, the MariaDB user conference in New York. Swarm64 has introduced its new Swarm64 DA, which empowers a single server to ingest more than a million records per second as well as analyze the data in real-time. Swarm64 DA utilizes the performance of Intel® Arria® 10 FPGAs to deliver these results and integrates seamlessly into MariaDB and PostgreSQL databases.

Features of Swarm64 DA include:

  • Plugs into MariaDB and is accessible through the storage engine interface.
  • Offloads CPU work onto the FPGA and is transparent to applications.
  • Can be fully controlled and configured by any experienced database administrator.

Relational databases and SQL continue to be the backbones for data analytics in the enterprise, but present databases are inadequate for processing large amounts of high velocity data within real-time limits. Swarm64 DA is an easy to use, cost-effective solution eliminating the risks and expenditures inherent to introducing new IT systems.

“Many industries face a data explosion from growing numbers of connected ‘things,’ and companies want to expand their business models to include data analytics” said Karsten Rönner, CEO of Swarm64. “Swarm64 DA enables anyone with basic skills in relational databases to gain deep new business insights.”

“Along with Swarm64, Intel is shortening our customers’ time to insights in a world of billions of smart and connected devices,” says Mike Strickland, architect and director, data center and storage business, Intel Programmable Solutions Group. “Using Intel FPGAs as accelerators for Intel® Xeon® processors in databases is a proven way to deliver faster results for business.”
