ClickHouse is an immutable, column-oriented data store. Rockset is fully mutable and uses its Converged Index™, which combines a columnar store, search index and row index to achieve low-latency analytics with maximum compute efficiency. Reduce infrastructure cost with a cloud-native architecture that disaggregates compute and storage. Save ops time and reduce complexity with a fully-managed real-time analytics database with no schema enforcement, clusters to manage, or any need to denormalize data.
Rockset is 1.67 times faster than ClickHouse with the same hardware configuration based on results from the Star Schema Benchmark.
Faster Development Time
ClickHouse requires configuring nodes, shards, software versions, replication and more. Rockset is a fully-managed, cloud-native database which minimizes operational burden and ongoing maintenance.
Lower Infrastructure Costs
Rockset separates storage, ingest and query compute so you don’t need to overprovision resources for your workload. Additionally, Rockset’s Converged Index(™) is highly compute efficient.
Rockset supports full SQL, including joins, in an efficient way. In ClickHouse, joins are not a first class citizen and they are prohibitively expensive so you’ll need to use workarounds that add complexity to your data model.
If you want flexible and easy real-time analytics, check out Rockset.
Here are four reasons why:
Creation of search, columnar and row indexes at ingest time
SQL search, aggregations and joins on semi-structured data
Efficient inserts, updates and deletes
Independent scaling of storage and compute in the cloud
