Reimagining Real-Time Analytics in the Cloud
Rockset co-founders Venkat Venkataramani and Dhruba Borthakur share the trends they are seeing in the market and their vision for a real-time cloud data stack.
Rockset recently announced a new round of funding to bring further innovation to real-time analytics for application development. Hear from Rockset co-founders Venkat Venkataramani and Dhruba Borthakur on the trends they are seeing in the market, their vision for a real-time cloud data stack and how to build fast, scalable real-time apps on Rockset:
- Modern data apps require real-time analytics - Across all industries, businesses are experiencing an increasing need to harness data in motion using apps for real-time personalization and recommendations, real-time supply chain logistics, gaming leaderboards, fraud detection, and more.
- Real-time analytics requires both speed and scale - Most development teams find building for both speed and scale a big challenge. Solutions built for speed, like Elasticsearch and Druid, are hard to scale, while solutions built for scale cannot be retrofitted for speed.
- Build scalable real-time apps in hours - Inspired by applications that have solved for speed and scale, such as Google Search and the Facebook News Feed, Rockset employs real-time indexing at their core. Learn how real-time indexing can be used alongside streaming platforms, like Kafka, and NoSQL databases, like MongoDB and DynamoDB, to build scalable real-time apps in hours instead of weeks.
