The integration between Striim and SingleStore is designed to facilitate real-time data streaming from various sources directly into SingleStore's database. Here's a step-by-step breakdown of how this process works:

  1. Data extraction. Striim begins by extracting data from various sources. This is achieved through its Change Data Capture (CDC) capabilities, which capture changes made at the data source in real time. Striim supports a wide range of data sources, including databases, log files, messaging systems and cloud services.
  2. Data processing. Once the data is captured, Striim processes it using its distributed streaming SQL platform. This platform allows Striim to run continuous queries on streaming data, join streaming data with historical caches and scale up to billions of events per minute. This real-time processing includes filtering, transformations, aggregations and enrichments that prepare the data for loading into SingleStoreDB.
  3. Intelligent schema evolution. Striim's intelligent schema evolution capabilities ensure that any changes in the data schema are captured and managed effectively. This feature allows businesses to have full control whenever data drifts, capturing schema changes, configuring how each consumer propagates the change, or halting and alerting when a manual resolution is needed.
  4.  Data loading. The processed data is then loaded into SingleStore in real time. SingleStore's high-performance, scalable SQL database is designed to handle large volumes of data, making it an ideal destination for the streaming data. SingleStore's unique architecture allows it to process transactions and analytics simultaneously, providing immediate insights on the freshest data.
  5. Data pipeline monitoring. Striim provides robust data pipeline monitoring capabilities, enabling businesses to keep track of their data flows. This includes monitoring the health and performance of data pipelines, ensuring data is delivered as expected and alerting in case of any issues.

Here's a quick video breakdown on how it all works.


The partnership between Striim and SingleStore offers businesses an effective solution for real-time data management. By allowing data to be streamed directly from Striim into SingleStore's database, the integration simplifies the process of real-time data integration and enhances the accuracy of data-driven decision-making. This collaboration provides a practical tool for businesses aiming to make better use of their real-time data.
