Ocient is a Chicago-based, venture-funded startup building a SQL compliant, exabyte-scale database platform that achieves better performance than Hadoop and NoSQL systems.

It is a distributed system optimized for NVMe drives, RDMA networks and high core count processors and is written in C++.

We are led by a management team with seven successful startup exits, including Cleversafe which was one of the largest software startup exit in Chicago’s history.

Ocient just announced $40M in Series B funding.  Read about the details here.
