Companies Choose Striim for Scalable, Real-Time Replication

Our legacy analytics platform used to take an hour per customer data load and weeks for each new deployment. With Striim we are able to transfer operational data to Snowflake in near realtime.

CTO at Inspyrus

We chose Striim as it provides continuous access to the data in our MySQL database without impacting its performance, and without taking the data out of the Google Cloud environment.

Cloud-Scale Architecture

Striim scales horizontally on in-memory compute with failover and high availability for maximum uptime.

StreamSets also scales horizontally and offers failover and high availability.

Exactly Once Data Delivery Guarantee

Striim’s advanced checkpointing capabilities ensure that no events are missed or processed twice.

StreamSets offers a choice of “At Least Once” or “At Most Once” data delivery guarantees which means that data can be either lost or duplicated, depending on which option is chosen.

High-Performance Change Data Capture (CDC)

Striim supports high-performance, E1P log-based CDC for many popular databases including: Oracle, PostgreSQL, MongoDB, MySQL, HPE Nonstop, and SQL Server. Built by the executive & technical team from GoldenGate Software, Striim brings decades of experience in mission-critical enterprise workloads.

StreamSets offers CDC from popular databases, but there is no mention of high-performance E1P CDC.

Detailed, Real-Time Data Visualization Dashboards

Striim offers detailed and customizable real-time dashboards visualizing end-to-end data delivery from source to target. Striim matches source and target transactions and alerts users to missing transactions, making it easy to identify issues as they occur. Striim offers data delivery and latency SLAs. Customers see end-to-end latency under 2 seconds.

StreamSets allows users to monitor jobs with a “Realtime Summary” that includes Record Count, Record Throughput, and Runtime statistics. They provide error messages and logs which can be time-intensive to scan through in the event of data loss or data lag scenarios.

Custom Alerts

Striim allows custom alerts on data delivery SLAs, data loss, and user-defined rules. Striim’s custom alerts are created using streaming SQL. 

StreamSets also allows the creation of custom alerts using the StreamSets expression language (based on JSP 2.0 expression language).

Automated Corrective Actions

Striim users can create custom workflows to perform corrective actions in the event of errors or failures. By tapping into error or status streams users can trigger compensating data flows, or perform other actions to remediate problems.

Real-Time Data Enrichment

Striim supports data enrichment and normalization using in-memory key-value stores for historic data. This allows users to enrich raw, real-time data with historical aggregates and lookup data.

Real-time Transformations

Striim users use streaming SQL for in-flight transformations, correlation, aggregation, masking, filtering, and analytics. Striim scales horizontally with in-memory compute for high performance transformations.

StreamSets Transformer leverages Apache Spark to allow users to perform stream processing and machine learning operations.

Striim offers a modern data platform that's both powerful and easy to use

Create data flows with a few clicks

Select from hundreds of templates to simplify building your data flows. A step-by-step wizard will lead you through the process of connecting to your source and target to create a data flow application. You can also create custom data flows from scratch.

Process your data with real-time SQL queries

Your data flow defines how to collect, process, and deliver data. The simplest data flow just has a source, a stream, and a target. In many cases you will need to perform some processing on your data. Striim enables you to set up continuous SQL queries optimized for streaming, real-time data.

Monitor your data flow in real-time

Our built-in dashboards and monitoring enable you to see the state of your data flows in real-time and easily identify any bottlenecks. Striim can also validate that your data has been delivered and provide visibility into the end-to-end lag. This level of visibility is essential for mission-critical systems that may have SLAs regarding how current the data is.

You can also drill down on any of the components in a data flow to see detailed statistics that include read/write rate, lag, latency, cpu usage and many other metrics. This detailed information can help identify any bottlenecks, and aids in tuning data flows for maximum performance and minimal latency.

Set alerts and create workflows to take corrective action

Striim allows you to define SQL-based custom alerts so you can stay informed about the status and performance of your data flows.

In the case of errors, or failures, you can also automate workflows to perform corrective actions. By tapping into error or status streams you can trigger compensating data flows to start, or perform other actions to remediate problems.
