Whitepaper: How Materialize Approaches Stream Processing
Materialize is a SQL platform for processing streaming data. It was launched in 2019 to address the growing need for the ability to build real-time applications easily and efficiently on streaming data so that businesses can obtain actionable intelligence from streaming data.
This whitepaper introduces Materialize as a source-available platform for processing streaming data. Materialize is built with SQL as the interface and with emphasis on comprehensive SQL surface area, correctness, and efficiency.
Materialize blends the scalability and performance of stream processors with the benefits of relational database indexes – all with a familiar SQL front-end and a strong consistency model that works the way you would expect it to work.
