Katana Graph Announce Graph Engine Now Optimized for 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable Processors

Katana Graph, a provider of software for high-performance scale-out graph processing, AI, and analytics, announced it has optimized its graph engine for the all-new 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processor and memory systems. According to the company, this means that Katana Graph can now take advantage of the latest generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors and Intel Optane persistent memory technology to process massive graphs on much smaller clusters. This will better support organizations with huge unstructured datasets and graphsincluding online retailers, financial institutions, and identity management companies—in understanding their customers, operations and opportunities.

Katana Graph’s platform is deployable out of the box on both 2nd Gen and 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors with Intel Deep Learning Boost, with no additional modifications required. On 3rd Gen Xeon Scalable processors, Katana Graph’s solution truly shines, offering a marked improvement in speed combined with the ability to process much larger datasets while using fewer machines.

“We are proud that our Katana Graph Engine runs up to twice as fast on Intel's 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors than on the previous generation right out of the box, and delivers even more performance with optimizations,” said Keshav Pingali, Katana Graph co-founder and CEO. “Our customers need the high-performance analytics capabilities that we are unleashing by working closely with Intel.” 

Katana Graph’s platform extracts actionable insights from massive unstructured datasets, using high-performance graph algorithms. At the heart of Katana Graph’s solution is the Katana Graph Engine with its accompanying partitioner, communication, virtualization, and storage technology modules, which, the company says, are the culmination of more than a decade of advanced research in graph technology and high-performance computing.
