Our story

Headquartered in Cambridge (UK), with offices in Tokyo and Singapore, GeoSpock makes big data usable for everyone.

GeoSpock designs, develops, and delivers GeoSpock DB – a unique, cloud-native analytics database designed for queries on extreme-scale datasets. Underpinned by world-leading technology developed in Cambridge, GeoSpock DB is the any-scale, high-performance database enabling complex real-world analytics. GeoSpock DB can power the future of smart cities, smart nations, IoT, and connected vehicles.

GeoSpock was founded in 2013 by Dr. Steve Marsh while reading for his PhD in Computer Science at the University of Cambridge. Steve came up with the idea for GeoSpock while building a supercomputer to mimic the human brain using biologically-inspired, massively parallel architectures – a concept still driving the design of GeoSpock DB.

In an increasingly data-centric world, more and more data about the physical world is machine-generated via IoT sensors and mobile devices. We work to ensure that data analytics is generating maximum value by enabling dynamic contextual intelligence, even when the data is vast, diverse, and complex. Our ability to produce real-time insights – operating in seconds, as opposed to weeks with existing solutions – means you can power new applications, answer complex questions, and make optimum decisions on the fly.
