Altinity – Unleashing a wave of innovation at the level of individual real-time analytic apps


As technology evolves at a lightning-fast pace, data is quickly becoming a digital marketer's most valuable resource. Consumers have come to expect personalized experiences at every touchpoint, and it's impossible to deliver these types of highly targeted ads and campaigns without the analytics-derived insights needed to power them. But as data streams grow larger, faster, and more complex by the minute, the speed at which these insights are put to use is becoming just as important as the insights themselves. In fact, many companies project that by 2025, there will be more than 24 billion interconnected devices in use around the globe — all generating continuous flows of data filled with critical (but often time-sensitive) consumer info. To take full advantage of these robust data stream and mine them for the most accurate and up-to-date insights they can offer, companies need to establish real-time data analytics strategies. In addition to enhancing personalization efforts and improving the overall customer experience, real-time data can help boost business agility, improve campaign performance, increase operational efficiency, and enhance customer understanding. All of these benefits are now necessities — not just nice-to-haves — for businesses hoping to engage customers effectively and grow.

What is ClickHouse®?

ClickHouse is the first open source SQL data warehouse to match the performance, maturity, and scalability of proprietary databases like Sybase IQ, Vertica, and Snowflake. ClickHouse development is driven by a community consisting of hundreds of contributors focused on solving real problems, not implementing corporate roadmaps. Add high performance analytics to any application–from embedded services to systems running on hundreds of servers. ClickHouse excels at business problems that require consistent low-latency response across petabyte tables. It can handle data arrival rates of millions of rows per second. Achievable response times include:

  • Ad-Hoc queries on source data: 1 second or less
  • Queries on aggregates: 10 milliseconds or less
  • Ingestion to query response: 500 milliseconds

ClickHouse dominates in use cases like web analytics, real-time network management, service log analysis, real-time ad bidding, asset valuation in financial markets, and security threat identification. Thanks to Apache 2.0 licenses for ClickHouse and ecosystem projects, developers can build innovative analytics without spending a cent for proprietary licenses or expensive cloud services. ClickHouse runs anywhere that Linux does: public clouds, Kubernetes, and on-premise environments. Resource stingy algorithms keep operating costs low while maximizing performance on available hardware. The permissive Apache 2.0 license makes ClickHouse an ideal choice for applications ranging from multi-tenant cloud services to embedded applications.
