We’ve already touched on the issue of processing events in real time. Today, we’re going to return to this topic and talk about a fairly new and interesting tool: the streaming DBMS PipelineDB.
PipelineDB is built on and fully compatible with the PostgreSQL 9.4 codebase. It was first released in June 2015 and the enterprise version came out in January 2016.
Below, we’ll compare PipelineDB with similar solutions, give brief installation and initial setup instructions, and also look at a use case.
