Frequently Asked Questions

  • Hydrolix is a cloud data platform that combines real-time stream processing, indexed search, and decoupled storage to process terabyte-scale transaction data at 4x less cost than similar systems.

  • Hydrolix is purpose-built to make big data cost-effective to collect, retain, and query. If you are currently working with or planning to work with datasets at volumes of 1 TB/day or greater, then Hydrolix is an excellent choice.

  • Hydrolix can be deployed on Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure, and Akamai Connected Cloud.

  • As a streaming data lake, Hydrolix brings a unique design to the challenges of real-time processing of high volumes of event data. Hydrolix combines stream processing, indexed search, advanced compression techniques and decoupled storage into a single, stateless architecture, a design that delivers a combination of high-performance, longer hot data retention, and low cost.

    The ingest system can handle both event streams (via Kafka, Kinesis, and HTTP streaming) and batch loading.

    The query system scales independently and specific workloads can be partitioned into query pools to avoid resource contention and to allow teams to assign compute resources in accordance to their own specific budget and performance goals.

    Hydrolix uses object storage (rather than block storage) to keep log storage costs low and extend hot data retention windows. Patented compression techniques further reduce your data footprint and log storage costs.

    Hydrolix’s approach to partitioning data plus it’s default of indexing every column, together with customizable query pools, deliver SSD performance at block storage prices.

  • For maximum flexibility, Hydrolix is designed to work out of the box with popular data visualization tools like Grafana, Redash, Superset, and Looker.

  • Here are the estimated costs for running Hydrolix on Amazon EKS, ingesting two terabytes of raw data per day and assuming 12 months of data retention and 15x compression.
