BlazingDB is a SQL database on graphics processing units (GPUs). Typically, we've been helping our users get BlazingDB up and running on large clusters of GPU servers on the cloud, but we want to make our engine available to more people.
On that note, check it out, have fun, and let us know what would make this experience better in the Support Channels!
You will require the following prerequisites to install the BlazingDB Server:
The BlazingDB Workbench is a web application client that needs to be installed in order to connect to a BlazingDB Server. You can interact with the engine using the BlazingDB Workbench or using one of our connectors. But either way, the BlazingDB Workbench needs to be installed to be able to establish a secure connection with the database engine.
Root privileges are required
All the steps bellow need to be executed as root user.
That is the reason why we need to execute "sudo bash" first.
sudo /bin/bash blazing-community-installer.sh
sudo /bin/bash blazing-community-installer.sh ppc64le
After the install you should be able to start the server with:
sudo /opt/blazing/Simplicity 8890 /opt/blazing/disk1/blazing/blazing.conf
To verify that the server is running type the following command:
sudo netstat -tulpn | grep 8890
After which you should see
All the files will be installed inside the default directory: /opt/blazing
And finally you should be able to start the workbench (as root user) using Java directly:
sudo java -jar /opt/blazing/workbench/blazing-workbench.jar
Once the BlazingDB Workbench is up and running open any browser and go to: http://localhost:8080/
The default username is "admin"
The default password is "123456"
