Whereas other systems require ahead-of-time denormalization or round-trip processing for joins, Materialize offers low-latency support for multi-way joins and complex transformations. Write the same kind of complex SQL queries you would use on a traditional data warehouse - and get real-time results.
Because Materialize is built on streaming internals, users can stream results out of the database without performance limits using two new primitives:
SUBSCRIBEto get pushed incremental updates to results instead of polling.
SINKSto push changes to results in a view out to a topic.
Materialize offers an easy SQL interaction layer to a stack of powerful stream processing engines - Timely Dataflow and Differential Dataflow. Already used in correctness-critical global production deployments by Fortune 100 companies, these battle-tested systems avoid many of the shortcomings of other approaches to stream processing.
Materialize directly integrates with our third-party applications, BI tools, you name it. It’s really SQL.
Materialize helps you get access to the power of a stream processing engine, with the simplicity of a PostgreSQL-compatible developer interface.
