MicroStrategy has released its Parallel Relational In-Memory Engine (PRIME) option for cloud. This product is described as an in-memory analytics service for complex analytical applications with the largest data sets and highest user concurrency.
Company CEO Michael Saylor says that PRIME "breaks new ground" by tightly coupling a state-of-the art visualization and dashboarding engine with a massively parallel in-memory data store.
"This architecture allows [developers] to build highly interactive applications that deliver responses to hundreds of thousands of users in a fraction of the time and cost of other approaches. MicroStrategy PRIME acts as a performance accelerator, opening up the data in databases to a much larger user population, driving new demand for information," he said.
MicroStrategy PRIME combines a massively parallel, distributed, in-memory architecture for extreme scale. Complex analytics problems can be partitioned across hundreds of CPU cores and nodes.
This product includes a -art dashboard and data exploration engine that includes hundreds of optimizations designed specifically for the in-memory data store. MicroStrategy PRIME is available as a service on MicroStrategy Cloud with the infrastructure, people, and processes needed.
