ThoughtSpot’s data analytics hardware is now available to the public

Big data startup ThoughtSpot said Tuesday that its core product, the ThoughtSpot Relational Search Appliance, is now available to the general public. ThoughtSpot wants to bring a Google-like search experience for data analytics with its hardware appliance, which contains an in-memory database and a custom-built search engine. When a user types in keywords into the search interface, ThoughtSpot can predict what a user wants to find and run SQL queries based on the search. The startup — whose founding team includes former members of Nutanix, Google and Yahoo — landed $30 million in funding in June.
