SingleStore is a distributed, relational database that handles both transactions and real-time analytics at scale. It is accessible through standard SQL drivers and supports ANSI SQL syntax including joins, filters, and analytical capabilities. For example, aggregates, group by, and windowing functions.
The SingleStore database:
- Scales horizontally on cloud instances or industry-standard hardware, providing high throughput across a wide range of platforms.
- Maintains a broad compatibility with common technologies in the modern data processing ecosystem (for example, orchestration platforms, developer IDEs, and BI tools), so, you can easily integrate it in your existing environment.
- Features an in-memory rowstore and an on-disk columnstore to handle both highly concurrent operational and analytical workloads.
- Features the SingleStore Pipelines data ingestion technology that streams large amounts of data at high throughput into the database with exactly once semantics.
