An MIT research project turned open source project dubbed the Massively Parallel Database (Map-D) is turning heads for its capability to generate visualizations on the fly from billions of data points. The software—an SQL-based, column-oriented database that runs in the memory of GPUs—can deliver interactive analysis of 10TB datasets with millisecond latencies. For this reason, its creator feels comfortable is calling it “the fastest database in the world.”
