Benefit your business with ClickHouse: Real-world scenarios

Logs and events data analysis

Loja Integrada & Pagali switched from PostgreSQL to DoubleCloud Managed ClickHouse for processing a massive amount of financial data. They saved 6 hours per week on PostgreSQL optimization, extended data storage time for financial fraud investigations by 6 times to 90 days, and reduced costs to half compared to the previous solution based on Postgres

Machine learning and predictive analytics

The application recorded 20 to 50 videos per game which amounted to millions of frames per game. The overall flow captures video frames which are then transformed by the Machine Learning team into representable information. The final form is stored in ClickHouse, from where it is accessed for analysis and representation.

Following global industry trends, such as Uber, Cloudflare, Microsoft, Deutsche Bank, and other renowned companies harness the power of ClickHouse to address critical challenges in:

Real-Time Analytics

ClickHouse excels due to its native columnar storage, ensuring lightning-fast query responses even with massive datasets. PostgreSQL, while versatile, may lag in real-time data processing.

Clickstream Analytics

ClickHouse excels due to its native columnar storage, ensuring lightning-fast query responses even with massive datasets. PostgreSQL, while versatile, may lag in real-time data processing.

Business Intelligence (BI)

ClickHouse’s columnar storage and low-latency handling of large datasets make it ideal for BI. It quickly generates insightful reports. While PostgreSQL offers strong SQL, ClickHouse’s specialized architecture often outperforms it in timely insights.
