Learnings from Snowflake and Aurora: Separating Storage and Compute for Transaction and Analytics

Separation of storage and compute is an important capability of most cloud native databases. Being able to scale compute independently from storage allows for cost savings as well as improved performance and elasticity. For example, operational databases such as Amazon Aurora and Azure Hyperscale have introduced separate log and storage services that do the work of making the log durable as well as some log maintenance work that would typically be done by the database engine itself. The result…

How We Integrated SingleStore Studio with Kerberos

Integrating Kerberos and SingleStore DB (MySQL protocol) authentication can be hard enough. However, this can be made even harder by trying to make this work when the cluster connection is coming from a web browser, going through to a SingleStore DB cluster via WebSockets . My goal with this post is to briefly explain how we integrated them all in a very simple and neat way. I am not going to explain Kerberos and SingleStore DB in too much depth. There are plenty of resources explaining…

Building an App With Cloudflare Workers and SingleStore

Hackathons are a big part of SingleStore's culture and a lot of our differentiating features have gotten their start during them. For this hackathon, a couple of us decided to dogfood SingleStore and build a serverless app. We host two hackathons per year where anybody is free to work on any project they'd like (we have categories but they are not very strict and it's okay to ignore them): A longer one in July-August which is 5 days long. A shorter one in January-February which goes for 2 days…

Moving Away From Next.js

We moved away from Next.js 11 months ago and haven't looked back! Why did we do it? What challenges did we face along the way? Read on to find out. A few years ago, we started developing our web app using Next.js , a frontend framework built on top of React and Node.js. Even though Next.js is primarily designed for applications that can take advantage of hybrid rendering such as e-commerce websites, we still decided to use Next.js over the alternatives at the time ( create-react-app , custom…

How to Add Real-Time Machine Learning Predictions to Your SingleStore Data with MindsDB

Have you ever needed to set a machine learning model on your data before? Personally, I know this used to be massively complicated. It usually involved needing to write application code to connect a third-party machine learning system, and then connecting the output of the model back into your application. This is how I usually feel when setting up a new machine learning project.  But now, with MindsDB and SingleStore, setting up a modern machine learning model has never been easier. That's…

How Three Companies Use SingleStore for Data Warehouse Augmentation

Across industries, nearly every business is in the data business—which creates enormous dependencies on popular data warehouses like Teradata, Snowflake, Google BigQuery and Amazon RedShift. Unfortunately, whether built with ported-over legacy technology or born in the cloud, these data warehouses typically depend on rigid, batch-oriented ETL/ELT technologies to capture, ingest, cleanse and transform data before it is available for analysis and reporting.  Sure, these traditional workflows can…

The employer sponsors the plan and may offer incentives such as contribution matching to encourage participation. These plans act as an important tool for attracting and retaining talent, but only if they perform well.  The typical account access website for these plans has outdated tools and technologies and lacks insight into plan performance on an individual and company-wide level…
