SingleStoreDB is a scale-out distributed database, with a lock-free architecture that supports both row and column storage. Unlike traditional relational offerings, row-based data is processed in-memory for transaction and operational processing, while columnar data (which is compressed) is persisted to disk to support analytics.
The product is envisioned as a singular solution to many, or even all, of your data storage needs. This is supported by its multi-model nature: it is capable of handling many different types of data, removing the need to build and manage a complex, expensive, and often fragile architecture of more specialist databases. The product’s support for vector data is particularly relevant in light of recent interest in (generative) AI.
