The Trouble With Today's Databases
Production services utilizing traditional OLTP databases cannot use the results generated in an analytics pipeline without additional infrastructure.
Many database systems are limited in their ability to scale across geographic regions without making significant tradeoffs either in latency or consistency guarantees.
Setting up and maintaining multiple database systems and ETL pipelines is hard. It gets even harder when organizations and services start to scale.
Where GlareDB Fits In
GlareDB consolidates transactional and analytical workloads into one system, without limiting the scaling capabilities of connected services.
What Makes GlareDB Special?
The key to adoption is not by throwing everything away, but by embracing existing database tooling. GlareDB implements the Postgres wire protocol and SQL dialect, allowing the use of existing connectors and libraries.
