Real-time Analytics News Roundup for Week Ending October 3


Amazon announces general availability of its new time series database for IoT, VMware rolls out new features for its Virtual Cloud Network offering, and more.

Keeping pace with news and developments in the real-time analytics market can be a daunting task. We want to help by providing a summary of some of the items our staff came across each week. Here is a short list of some news from this week:

Amazon Web Services announced the general availability of Amazon Timestream, a new time series database for IoT and operational applications that can scale to process trillions of time series events per day up to 1,000 times faster than relational databases, and at as low as 1/10th the cost. Amazon Timestream saves businesses effort and expense by keeping recent data in-memory and moving historical data to a cost-optimized storage tier based upon user-defined policies, while its query processing gives businesses the ability to access and combine recent and historical data transparently across tiers with a single query, without needing to specify explicitly in the query whether the data resides in the in-memory or cost-optimized tier. Amazon Timestream’s analytics features provide time series-specific functionality to help customers identify trends and patterns in data in near real-time. Because Amazon Timestream is serverless, it automatically scales up or down to adjust capacity based on load, without customers needing to manage the underlying infrastructure. There are no upfront costs or commitments required to use Amazon Timestream, and customers pay only for the data they write, store, or query.

TigerGraph announced free licenses for TigerGraph Enterprise, an offering that will let businesses easily use graph analytics and algorithms that quickly traverse graphs to find insights in real-time. TigerGraph is now free for everyone to use for databases up to 50GB graph size. (That can be more than 150GB in other graph systems, which expand data rather than compress it). Free license users can get technical support from TigerGraph’s community forum. For paid TigerGraph support, users need an Enterprise license. The TigerGraph Enterprise Free License announcement comes a year after the company announced a free tier of TigerGraph Cloud, the first native graph database-as-a-service. The free license allows customers to learn and experience, develop and test, and deploy into production. TigerGraph Enterprise Free License complements the free tier available on TigerGraph Cloud; TigerGraph Cloud Free Tier is not changing and remains available.
