SQLstream Blaze, which includes core streaming analytics technology licensed by Amazon Web Services (AWS) for its Amazon Kinesis Analytics service, is now available for purchase on AWS Marketplace. SQLstream Blaze can “seamlessly” integrate data on and off the AWS cloud with data from Amazon Kinesis and Amazon Kinesis Analytics.
SQLstream Blaze would provide an intuitive and efficient data ingestion solution, enabling non-technical users to “easily” tap into new sources of unstructured and structured data in minutes – whether on premises, on the AWS Cloud or on other public or private clouds including Internet of Things (IoT) data – and enhance and analyze the data before piping at scale into Kinesis and data stores.
The combination of Amazon Kinesis Analytics and SQLstream Blaze would make it easy for businesses to securely and cost-effectively ingest, analyze, aggregate and integrate/manage streaming data on and between public cloud, private cloud, and on-premises, allowing for:
- Pay-as-you-go pricing
- Analysis and processing of millions of events per second per core, with “under 5 millisecond latency” and flexible scaling
- Fast development and continuous updates: streaming applications can be built “in minutes” without interrupting execution
- 100% SQL compatible with Amazon Kinesis Analytics
- Continuous and real-time ingestion from sources like Kinesis, Apache Kafka, AMQP, TCP/IP, log files, IoT sources, et al., with streaming integration: system captures any type of data, structured or unstructured, in motion or at rest, from the cloud or on-premises
- Drag-and-drop visual development environment that automatically generates SQL code
- Continuous load into any number of destinations, simultaneously: Hadoop NoSQL platforms, Oracle, SQLServer, Teradata and many other RDBMS platforms
- Advanced analytics through features like: full support for Java functions, auto-optimized time window operators, proper event sequencing, seamless telemetry, deterministic parallel processing, probabilistic model-driven recovery for high availability, stream-stream and stream-table joins, automatic back-pressure, and customizable dashboards.
“The Blaze availability on Marketplace follows the news that Amazon Web Services (AWS) has licensed and implemented a subset of Blaze’s core technology enabling ANSI standard SQL for its very own Amazon Kinesis Analytics,” said Damian Black, CEO of SQLstream. “In parallel, we developed and introduced the SQLstream Blaze Adapter for Amazon Kinesis Analytics to provide streaming analytics to businesses focused on taking the next right action, continuously and real time. With this, the store-before-query analytics and conventional ETL models are increasingly becoming irrelevant.”
