BlazingSQL is a GPU-accelerated SQL engine built on top of the RAPIDS ecosystem. BlazingSQL allows standard SQL queries to be distributed across GPU clusters, and the results to be fed directly into GPU-accelerated visualization and machine learning libraries. Basically, BlazingSQL provides the ETL portion of an all-GPU data science workflow. RAPIDS is a suite of […]
