GigaSpaces InsightEdge Platform with Intel technology accelerates AI innovations

4 Apr 2018 New York - GigaSpaces, a provider of in-memory computing (IMC) technologies that unify fast-data analytics, AI and real-time applications on a single software platform, has announced the results of a benchmarking study that spotlight improvements of the latest Intel hardware breakthroughs. The study compared GigaSpaces InsightEdge Platform on Intel Xeon Scalable Processors and Intel Optane SSDs against previous-generation Intel products.

The results of the study show faster queries and load times on the platform, helping enterprises to access and act on insights the instant data is available. Time to load data to the InsightEdge Platform was 33% faster, and query times improved 23%. These results can be replicated in enterprises using on-premise, Cloud, and hybrid Cloud deployments.

"The combination of Intel's latest hardware and the InsightEdge Platform goes beyond unifying fast-data analytics and transactional processing to power instant insight and actions on time-sensitive data in milliseconds", stated Barak Bar Orion, Head of R&D at GigaSpaces. "Enterprises that adopt this approach can innovate real-time analytics applications leveraging machine learning to increase revenues, reduce costs, mitigate risks, and outperform their competitors."

The synergies of the combined GigaSpaces platform and Intel technologies accelerate AI innovations. Integration between GigaSpace's InsightEdge with BigDL - a distributed deep learning library for Apache Spark software - and the Intel Math Kernel Library for Deep Neural Networks (Intel MKL-DNN) creates an infrastructure-optimized solution for deep learning workloads running on Intel Xeon Scalable processors. GigaSpaces MemoryXtend, a multi-tiered data storage architecture supports a hybrid storage model where data is stored on the SSD, leveraging Intel Optane SSDs and indexes are stored in RAM, resulting in the support of larger data workloads while maintaining high performance.

To generate the results, GigaSpaces ran a geospatial and advanced data analysis on 4GB sets on the InsightEdge Platform to perform real-time operational decision-making. The tests compared the Intel Xeon Platinum 8168 processor and Intel Optane SSD DC P4800X Series against the Intel Xeon processor E5-2660 v4 and the Intel SSD DC P3700 series.

"With this InsightEdge Platform release, GigaSpaces continues to meet the needs of the real-time millisecond enterprise", stated Adi Paz, CEO of GigaSpaces. "A critical competitive advantage results from the ability to out-innovate its rivals by leveraging the data within the organization to gain instant insights that can immediately impact the business applications. InsightEdge enhancements continue to simplify and scale our platform so that our customers can innovate with confidence to become insight-driven."
