Internet of Things (IoT) and streaming data analytics

To ensure a seamless integration into an IoT infrastructure, EXASOL provides integration components that are based on Apache Kafka and allow fully parallelized, high-performance data imports.

Many analyst firms continue to tell us that the Internet of Things phenomenon (IoT) is expected to connect more than 30 billion devices by 2020 and therefore generate trillions of dollars in global economic benefit based on increased efficiency, new business models and new revenue streams.

While the figures may vary, one thing is indeed true: virtually every industry across enterprise and consumer market sectors will be impacted by the Internet of Things.

However, IoT-style streaming data is already a reality for many large-scale applications, where data continues to be generated and processed at fast speeds. When it comes to analyzing such data flows, EXASOL has the technology to handle and analyze large-scale streaming data – today.

Features at a glance:

  • Interactive performance on IoT streaming data: EXASOL can handle the analysis of hundreds of TBs with ease, allowing users to benefit from true, interactive analytics
  • Parallelized data load: EXASOL is able to load terabytes of data every hour that are required for real-time processing and analytics
  • Fast and unlimited scale-out: EXASOL clusters can be easily extended by adding further nodes as data volumes increase. Due to EXASOL’s intelligent algorithms, clusters can be enlarged and resized quickly – no new data redistribution is required

To ensure a seamless integration into an IoT infrastructure, EXASOL provides integration components that are based on Apache Kafka and allow fully parallelized, high-performance data imports.

Furthermore, by using a stream data integration connector, it is also easy to connect EXASOL to any established IoT infrastructure (e.g. based on Apache Storm or Apache Spark).

Benefits of EXASOL and IoT/streaming data:

  • Direct data loading in parallel
  • Full-featured analytic performance layer for low latency and interactive ad hoc data exploration
  • No need for manual administration, programming or tuning
  • Maximal performance through MPP, in-memory computing
  • Most scalable analytic RDBMS on the market
