Select excerpts from the GigaOm Radar Report include:

  • The platform offers excellent concurrent loading and querying performance over massive data sets and a columnar data store with a high degree of effective compression. In addition, the platform offers a robust set of SQL-based in-memory analytics functions such as time series, pattern matching, geospatial analytics and many more.
