Rockset Now Supports Amazon DynamoDB

Rockset, a serverless search and analytics company, has announced the availability of real-time SQL on NoSQL data from Amazon DynamoDB.  

Hundreds of thousands of AWS customers have chosen DynamoDB as their key-value and document database for mobile, web, gaming, ad tech, Internet of Things (IoT) and other applications that need low-latency data access at any scale.

With DynamoDB usage maturing in organizations, there is an increasing need for operational analytics and real-time business reporting on it, which requires the ability to search transactional data, run aggregations and join the data with other datasets.

Rockset is an operational analytics engine that is entirely serverless, which means it does not require provisioning, capacity planning or server administration in the cloud. Developers and data engineers can run complex queries with the full power of SQL and choose to visualize the data in live dashboards such as Tableau, or build custom applications using Rockset’s real-time SQL.

“Once provided with read access to a DynamoDB table, Rockset reflects changes as they occur in DynamoDB by making use of changelogs in DynamoDB streams. This gives users an up-to-date (within a few seconds) indexed version of their DynamoDB table in Rockset," said Venkat Venkataramani, CEO of Rockset. "And each SQL query against this table is distributed and executed in parallel to ensure that query results return in milliseconds."

With this release, Rockset supports the ability to:

  • Visualize DynamoDB data in leading SQL-based visualization tools, including BI market leader Tableau, Apache Superset, Redash and Grafana, in real time.
  • Build custom interactive dashboards and real-time applications using SQL on DynamoDB data.
  • Join DynamoDB data with data in Kafka event streams, Amazon Kinesis or Amazon S3.
