SaaS Applications

Drive interactive experiences for every customer, every time

Modern customer-facing SaaS apps need to deliver fast, interactive experiences while scaling easily to serve thousands — or hundreds of thousands — of users. So, how do you deliver analytics at scale and meet the demands of a modern real-time SaaS application? It starts with the right database.

Today, customers have to power their SaaS applications by “stitching” together a variety of single-purpose and specialty data engines — one or more transactional (OLTP) databases, specialty data engines and a series of analytical databases duct-taped together to power applications.

Unfortunately, this leads to highly inefficient and complex architectures, unnecessary data movement and ETL — all of which drive up data latency and operating costs. The result? Applications struggle to deliver fast analytics on fresh data, running into performance and scalability bottlenecks.

SingleStoreDB offers a modern, unified scale-out database that provides blazing-fast transactional, analytical and AI capabilities in a single engine —  without data movement — to power your SaaS applications. That means you can say goodbye to multiple specialized databases. 

With SingleStoreDB you get the ACID compliance, scalability and fast writes of a transactional database together with the ultra-fast ingestion, reads, aggregations and millisecond query latencies of an analytics engine.

This enables SingleStoreDB to deliver 10-100x faster performance for your SaaS apps at a fraction of the cost compared to your legacy architecture — and has an enormous impact on your end-user experience, scalability and revenue recognition goals.
