Streaming a Database in Real Time

Streaming a Database in Real Time

In a recent pilot program, Streambase was able to analyze 140,000 messages per second, while a leading relational database — Stonebraker won’t say which one — could handle only 900 messages per second. Streambase has 12 customers now testing its software, all of them financial services companies that need to analyze rapid-fire ticker feeds and other streaming data.

Unlike traditional database programs, Streambase analyzes data without storing it to disk, performing queries on data as it flows. Traditional systems bog down because they first store data on hard drives or in main memory and then query it, Stonebraker says.
