Amazon Web Services Has Licensed SQLstream Technology for Amazon Kinesis Analytics Service Launched Today

San Francisco, August 11th, 2016 – SQLstream, the leading streaming analytics platform provider, today announced that Amazon Web Services (AWS) has licensed and implemented a subset of core technology from Guavus SQLstream, its streaming analytics platform. Guavus SQLstream enables Amazon Kinesis Analytics developers to get actionable insights from streaming data continuously and in real time, using ANSI standard SQL.

SQLstream is also announcing the Guavus SQLstream Adapter for Amazon Kinesis Analytics. The Guavus SQLstream Adapter enables businesses to securely and cost-effectively ingest, analyze, and manage streaming data on and between  cloud and on-premises environments.

IoT applications, mobile devices, wearables, industrial sensors, as well as many software applications and services can generate staggering amounts of streaming data – sometimes TBs per hour – that need to be ingested, analyzed, and managed as the data arrive, to enable valuable business actions continuously and in real time. The combination of Amazon Kinesis Analytics and Guavus SQLstream offers the best of on-premises and cloud advantages.

With a streaming analytics solution that includes Guavus SQLstream and Amazon Kinesis Analytics, customers can:

  • Easily ingest streaming data within cloud and on-premises environments: Discovery and automatic ingest and transform any data format – structured or unstructured, live or historical, in motion or at rest – from or to any data format, interfacing with a wide array of sources and destinations including Amazon Kinesis and Firehose, Hadoop, data warehouses, message buses (including Kafka), files, and devices.
  • Easily ingest all data into and out of AWS: Streaming ingestion allows data to be moved continuously and in real time from data sources, to the cloud, and from the cloud through a high performance bi-directional Guavus SQLstream Kinesis Adapter.
  • Painlessly operationalize insights continuously and in real time: Analysis of high-volume, high-velocity data, turning it into actionable information with millisecond latency using Guavus SQLstream technology licensed by AWS. Live data streams are integrated and analyzed with historical data for accurate business context, record by record, eliminating the risk of incomplete analysis for time sensitive decisions, due to batch or micro-batch processing.
  • Deploy real-time analytics at the edge for a far lower cost: Developing streaming applications and deploying them for optimal performance near data sources at the edge, on premises, or in the cloud. Declarative SQL allows automatic optimization and parallelization, dramatically reducing runtime footprint and hardware requirements. Streaming analytics enables data to be analyzed and acted on as the data arrive, without needing to store, eliminating unnecessary security risks and storage costs.
  • Centralize streaming data visibility and security at global scale: Global view of data flowing through deployments using telemetry provided by Guavus SQLstream. Data can be managed and marshalled for storage or analyzed without storing, for optimal value and security.
  • Use existing apps, databases, data warehouses, and skillsets: Using data from existing sources and writing standard SQL queries on streaming data, without having to learn any new programming skills. In addition, the SQLstream development environment, StreamLab, enables data analysts and SQL, Java, Python, and Scala developers to build streaming applications in minutes.
  • Enjoy zero downtime: Maintain continuous business operations while changing streaming application logic or queries, on-the-fly, while data is in motion.
  • Automate accurate, contextual actions: Operationalizing actions with applications that deliver triggers and alerts based on real-time, record-by-record contextual analysis of live and historical data, including time-series and spatial operators.

“The store-before-query analytics and conventional ETL models are irrelevant in a world where streaming analytics can empower businesses to take the next right action, continuously and real time,” said Damian Black, CEO of SQLstream. “The combination of Amazon Kinesis Analytics and Guavus SQLstream makes it easier than ever for businesses to securely and cost-effectively ingest, analyze, and manage streaming data on and between public cloud, private cloud, and on premises.”
