There is a trend in industry which says that modern applications need to be built on top of one or more special-purpose databases. That every application benefits from using the best-of-breed technology for each requirement. And that the plethora of special-purpose options available from certain cloud providers is reasonable to manage. That’s all BUNK. The reality is that navigating the choices, figuring out how to use them effectively, and dealing with the ETL and inevitable data sprawl, is so…

It’s time for us to admit what we have all known is true for a long time: NoSQL is the wrong tool for many of the modern application use cases, and it’s time that we move on. NoSQL came into existence because the databases at the time couldn’t handle the scale required. The rise of this new generation of data services solved many of the problems of web scale and rapidly growing data sets when it was created more than a decade ago. NoSQL also offered a new, cost-effective method for cold storage…

The proliferation of streaming analytics and instant decisions to power dynamic applications, as well as the rise of predictive analytics, machine learning, and operationalized artificial intelligence, have introduced a requirement for a new type of database workload: operational analytics. The two worlds of transactions and analytics, set apart from each other, are a relic of a time before data became an organization’s most valuable asset. Operational analytics is a new set of database…

In this blog post, the first in a two-part series, I’m going to describe pre-modern databases: traditional relational databases, which support SQL but don’t scale out, and NoSQL databases, which scale out but don’t support SQL. In the next part, I’m going to talk about modern databases – which scale out, and which do support SQL – and how they are well suited for an important new workload: operational analytics . In the Beginning: OLTP Online transaction processing (OLTP) emerged several…

Scaling distributed systems is hard. Scaling a distributed database is really hard. Databases are particularly hard to scale because there are so many different aspects you have to consider. For example, which dimension is growing, and how fast, will dictate what resources you need to increase in order to handle the workload and maintain your service level agreements (SLAs). Some problems require more CPU, some more RAM, and some more storage. Many times, you need a combination. Knowing how much…

Today, we introduced a new toolset for SingleStore that makes it easier to deploy, manage, troubleshoot, and monitor SingleStore. The new tools are easier to use, integrate more broadly, and contain new capabilities. SingleStore already has management tools for these operations, so why create new ones? First, the existing toolset is a closed loop. The tools only work with SingleStore and it is not easy to integrate with them. We’ve had many customers request integration with the broader…

Many organizations find they need to support a database-as-a-service workload. This is a model where multiple organizations have data living side by side to reduce management costs but each organization requires a strong namespace and security boundary around its data. Organizations also often want to leverage the existing ecosystem of tooling available on top of the data layer. This is a challenge to do using legacy databases because they do not scale out and a challenge with NoSQL systems…

What is Machine Learning? Machine learning (ML) is a method of analyzing data using an analytical model that is built automatically, or “learned”, from training data. The idea is that the model gets better as you feed it more data points, enabling your algorithm to automatically get better over time. Machine learning has two distinct steps, training, and operationalization. Training takes a data set you know a lot about (known as a training set), then explores the data set to find patterns, and…
