Irish software company KX has accelerated real-time analytics, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning for Google Cloud users.

KX, a specialist in vector and time-series data management, has announced the native availability of KDB Insights and its enterprise version on Google Cloud Marketplace. Users can now accelerate AI, machine learning, IoT automation and generative AI-powered applications on Google Cloud.

With native support for Python and SQL, and the ability to process time series and vector data in real time, KX’s technology gives data scientists, data engineers and application developers the ability to combine real-time, historical and vector embeddings for smarter, faster business decision making.

When combined with Google Cloud’s speed, scale, security and AI capabilities, users can benefit from faster deployment, efficiency and global availability to deliver lower total cost of ownership and ease of operation.

“There’s rapidly growing demand for real-time analytics and vector processing in the cloud, as customers look to take advantage of the transformational opportunities being afforded by AI,” said Jonny Press, CTO at Data Intellect. “We’re delighted to be working with KX on helping customers generate maximum business value from running the industry-leading time series and vector database technology on Google Cloud.”

Ashok Reddy, KX CEO, added: “Combining our real-time analytics and our vector database with the elasticity and scalability of Google Cloud infrastructure will help enterprises rapidly accelerate their journey towards more real-time and effective business decision making. We look forward to developing our partnership with Google Cloud, allowing customers to accelerate their data analytics, vector search and generative AI workloads.”

KX’s offering enriches traditional data warehouses and lakehouse stores for a more complete, real-time view of the business. Integrating seamlessly with Google Cloud’s ability to migrate, build and optimise apps across hybrid environments, KX gives current and prospective users a choice in data management.

“As a part of their digital transformation strategies, many enterprises are seeking comprehensive options to capture, analyse and visualise real-time and historical data,” said Dai Vu, managing director of Google Cloud Marketplace. “We’re happy to welcome KX to Google Cloud Marketplace to help customers across a range of industries to better derive insights and improve business outcomes.”
