Gigapipe is a fully managed Big Data ecosystem built around our core managed ClickHouse service. This means you don't need to manually deploy, configure, or maintain ClickHouse clusters, and instead can focus on what you want to use ClickHouse for. Alongside ClickHouse we offer a variety of additional apps for data ingest pipelines, monitoring, metrics & observability, and data visualization, either managed by Gigapipe or through one our partners. See our list of supported ecosystems apps to see what apps can be managed through Gigapipe. New apps are added by popular demand through our feature request system.
Gigapipe can be used across a broad spectrum of industries and data sets. As an example Gigapipe is ideal for the following:
- Web and App analytics
- Advertising networks and RTB
- E-commerce and finance
- Information security
- Monitoring and telemetry
- Time series
- Business intelligence
- Online games
- Internet of Things
Gigapipe is also particularly useful for prototyping and testing, as clusters are created and destroyed in seconds, without needing to code or manage any infrastructure. Please note though that data in Gigapipe must be structured, as ClickHouse does not directly support unstructured data.
It's up to you! Gigapipe only stores data in the region in which you created your cluster. Data is never moved between clusters unless you specifically request it. For a list of supported regions, please check the supported regions in the docs.
We recommend reading our ClickHouse documentation for information on how to use ClickHouse after you've created a cluster.
Definitely! We love to hear back from our customers and provide us with new ideas on how we can better support you. Please visit our feature request system to submit your idea. If approved, we'll get on it right away.
Gigapipe charges based on the resources you deploy. ClickHouse is far more efficient than other databases, therefore requiring less hardware. Please see our pricing page for more details.
Currently we support clusters deployed on Google GCP and Amazon AWS. We plan to add more vendors in the future. Please check the docs to see list of supported vendors.
