Is anyone familiar with MapD.com?


#1

Does anyone in the Julia community deal with MapD.com at all? It is a GPU database company and it uses LLVM which seems to be a natural fit for Julia.


#2

Yes, I have used MapD. There is a collective effort to make a GPU-backed DataFrame, and in time I’m sure someone (me?) will make it available in Julia

NamedTuples on 0.7 should be working nicely with GPUArrays, so the most basic Vector{<: NamedTuple} should be quite straight forward to bring to the GPU.
Obviously, efficiently implementing all the query operations one might want will be more involved :wink:
