Over the last year, these entities have begun to look at GPU based solutions providing dramatically faster processing at a fraction of the cost. We agree with the recent articles we highlight below that state that “There’s a revolution brewing in how applications are designed that is fueled by the desire to exploit non-traditional processing engines instead of traditional general purpose CPUs and it’s rapidly moving from academia and science projects to business”.

From Space Invaders To Curing Cancer: The Rise of GPUs — Forbes, Nov. 30, 2015

So what is the outlook for GPU based systems to disrupt the data base market in 2016 and beyond? What industries are most likely to be early adopters of this disruptive technology(e.g. finance, ad tech, genome research??). What will it take to get enterprises to run mission critical apps on GPU based systems? These questions and more will be addressed by our panel of GPU/Database thought leaders:
