Streaming SQL with PipelineDB

Date: 2015-09-18
Time: 16:30 - 17:20
Room: Houston Ballroom A
Level: Intermediate

PipelineDB is an open-source streaming SQL database that runs queries continuously on streams, incrementally storing the results in tables. It is a fork of PostgreSQL. The product was born out of a need for such a product discovered while we were some of the earliest engineers at AdRoll, where we built some of the largest-scale streaming analytics infrastructure around at that time. We were early adopters of technologies including Storm, Kafka, HBase, Cassandra etc., and we built great technology but it required mastery and integration with all of those systems, glued together with a lot of application code. It was complex.

PipelineDB is built to solve this growing problem of streaming analytics in a way that is accessible to a broad range of developers who are proficient in SQL, without a need to manage an external datastore. It is a unified solution that is no more complex than a standard PostgreSQL deployment.

We propose to give a talk that covers the following:

Our expected audience is developers who are interested in leveraging their knowledge and familiarity with PostgreSQL to introduce a realtime, stream-processing capability to their respective organizations.
