High-performance human solutions for Extreme Data

Push your development to a more competitive customer solution with *Sparksee 5

Scalable high-performance graph database

SparkseeSparksee (formerly known as DEX), makes space and performance compatible with a small footprint and a fast analysis of large networks.


SparkseeIt is natively available for .Net, C++, Python and Java, and covers the whole spectrum of Operating Systems.


SparkseeSparksee mobile is the first graph database available for iOS and Android.



Why Sparksee

check

Small memory footprint that is easy to manage

arrow
The graph is represented through bitmap data structures that allow high compression rates.

arrow
Node adjacencies are represented by bitmaps to minimize their footprint.

arrow
Each value in the database is represented only once, avoiding unnecessary replication.

check

I/O efficiency retrieving data from the database

arrow
Each of the bitmaps is partitioned into chunks that fit into disk pages to improve I/O locality.

arrow
The number of times each data page is brought to memory is minimized with advanced I/O policies.

arrow
It provides direct access to OS buffers, avoiding the decoding and encoding of other solutions

check

Boosting performance at its maximum

arrow
Using bitmaps, operations are computed with binary logic instructions that simplify the execution in pipelined processors.

arrow
The C++ core avoids overhead execution and complex memory management, as opposed to Java based engines.

arrow
High concurrency and low latency query response times secure high performance even under stress conditions.

check

Wide compatibility to be user oriented

arrow
Full native indexing allows an extremely fast access to each of the graph data structures.

arrow
Natively available for .Net, C++, Python and Java, and for iOS, Android and BB10 based mobile devices.

arrow
Low level API with direct access to the core engine functionalities.
