The Strata Conference was host to the first public demonstration of Bigstream Hyper-acceleration. See our announcement blog from the event.
Bigstream was honored with invitations to both the Solutions Showcase and the Startup Showcase. We used that to demonstrate an AdTech use case that achieved 2.5X acceleration of Spark SQL operations with no hardware acceleration and an ETL use cases that achieved about 10x acceleration using an FPGA. Neither demos, nor benchmarks required changes to a single line of code. That is Hyper-acceleration.
Presented and demonstrated by Bigstream Solutions Architect, Roop Ganguly
About the Author
Bigstream provides hyper-acceleration technology for popular big data processing engines like Apache Spark using both hardware and software accelerators. Hyper-acceleration of big data, machine learning and AI workloads is achieved using advanced compiler techniques and transparent support for FPGAs, many-core CPUs and GPUs. Unlike other hardware- or platform-specific approaches, Bigstream delivers orders of magnitude performance acceleration instantly and with no application code changes or special APIs.
