OmniSci recently announced the launch of OmniSci Free, a full-featured version of its analytics platform available for use at no cost. OmniSci free will enable users to utilize the full power of the OmniSci Analytics Platform, which includes OmniSciDB, OmniSci Render Engine, OmniSci Immerse, and the OmniSci Data Science Toolkit. The solution can be deployed on Linux-based servers and is generally adequate for datasets of up to 500 million records. Three concurrent users are permitted.
OmniSci is an analytics platform originating from research at MIT. The product allows users to interactively query and visualize data science workflows over billions of records. It features an open-source analytics database called OmniSciDB, as well a server-side engine for rendering pointmap, scatterplot, and polygon visualizations. A web-based visualization interface called Immerse provides standard visualizations as well as complex ones like geo-point maps and choropleths. Dashboards automatically cross-filter when interacting with data.
OmniSci Free is available for immediate download, as well as turnkey deployment on the AWS and Azure clouds. Users can also try OmniSci on their Mac laptops and desktops with the OmniSci for Mac Preview.
In a media statement on the news, OmniSci co-founder and CEO Todd Mostak said “Our mission from the beginning has been to make analytics instant, powerful, and effortless for everyone, and the launch of OmniSci Free is our latest step towards making our platform accessible to an even broader audience. While our open source database has delivered significant value to the community as an ultra-fast OLAP SQL engine, it has become increasingly clear that many use cases heavily benefit from access to the capabilities of our full platform, including its massively scalable visualization and data science capabilities.”
