What is it?

Cascade Analytics System is an absolute speed record holder which has the lowest cost of performance in the market. It provides distributed storage, distributed processing and real time query response for very large data sets known as Big Data. To achieve its speed, Cascade uses much less hardware and energy than the competition. It allows asking questions in Natural Language and to use Machine Learning/AI algorithms for predictions of business metrics.
Cascade analytics can be implemented in classical Data Warehouse or cloud solutions. It can also pull data from other sources, such as relational (Oracle, DB2, SQL Server, etc) or NOSQL (Cassandra, HBase, Hive, Spark) databases.

Use Cases

Supporting Machine Learning/AI Applications
Modern applications require fast "online" machine learning on up-to-date data. Due to its internal data organization, Cascade acts as an online Bayesian modeling tool and provides fast scoring through its query mechanisms. Faster up-to-date learning directly translates into higher business gains. Cascade also supports Multi-linear Regression, Decision Trees, Random Forests and other ML algorithms.

Lowering cost of performance in Data Warehousing / OLAP / BI
Business analysts require fast answers as they dynamically explore large amounts of data. Cascade boosts performance of typical Data Warehouse queries while requiring less hardware resources and consuming less energy. Whether deployed on premises or in the Cloud, Cascade allows businesses to save money and improve performance.

TCO formula

The Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for BI can be calculated as a product of the Cost of Performance (CoP) and the required SLA (Service Level Agreement in QpH):
Cascade's value proposition is to drastically reduce the TCO while meeting and exceeding the productivity SLA.
The Cost of Performance is an objective measure allowing to normalize and compare productivity of BI products taking into account Hardware, Software, and Energy costs used to achieve the required performance. Cascade effectively decreases the cost of Hardware and Energy as well as increases the speed itself. As a result, we reduce the TCO by orders of magnitude.

Where can I use it?

The utmost advantage of Cascade analytics is the ability to provide higher performance and better efficiency with lower h/w and energy cost under workloads common for Big Data analytics. It makes Cascade analytics the best solution for any distributed analytic system, and it can also be used with IoT user cases. The product has functionality for solving problems in Business Intelligence and Machine Learning areas.

Use Cases

Accelerating Visual Data Exploration Tools
Users of visual data exploration tools like Tableau or QlikSense need to navigate through large amounts of data in real time. Cascade not only ensures real time query response from billions of rows of data but also allows users to dynamically add data in real time. Improved performance translates into higher revenues.

Helping IoT Applications
IoT applications often run in the "Fog" - on small edge devices and gateways. Cascade is up to the challenge. It scales not only up but also down and can operate in the environments with changing network topology. This allows users to efficiently and economically solve problems for which heavyweight tools are not applicable.

Why do I need it?

Cascade allows you to drastically decrease costs for answering your business questions fast. Other comparable systems require much more hardware, and consume much more energy.

Fast Processing

An innovative approach to multidimensional organization of massive dynamic data for extremely fast processing of analytical tasks.


The only analytics engine which can federate execution across nodes of different connectivity and computing power.

High Performance

Cascade’s speed is not accompanied by higher hardware cost. With demonstrated million transactions per second (TPS) per server performance, you can cut hardware costs or build larger scale applications.

Hightly Scalable

From each connected device to the powerful datacenter cluster, Cascade scales up or down depending on your individual business needs.

High Availability

In case of a network partition, Cascade maintains a highly available profile. The partitioned nodes continue operation – accepting reads and writes – so any application server that can see part of the cluster can continue to operate effectively and efficiently.

Natural Language Friendly

Many challenges in NLP involve: natural language understanding, enabling computers to derive meaning from human or natural language input and natural language generation.
