MapD, or “Massively Parallel Database,” is an analytic platform that can query and visualize big data up to 1000x faster than other systems. It does this by leveraging the massive parallelism of commodity GPUs to execute SQLqueries over multi-billion row data sets with millisecond response times. Depending on the use case, MapD can be used as a standalone lightning-fast SQL database, or with its own visualization front end called MapD Immerse for ultra-interactive data exploration, or with BI offerings like Tableau. The company was founded in 2013 and is based in San Francisco, California.
