Data Streaming

Real-time analytics, ML and applications made simple

The Databricks Data Intelligence Platform dramatically simplifies data streaming to deliver real-time analytics, machine learning and applications on one platform.

Enable your data teams to build streaming data workloads with the languages and tools they already know. Simplify development and operations by automating the production aspects associated with building and maintaining real-time data workloads. Eliminate data silos with a single platform for streaming and batch data.

Value Action

Build streaming pipelines and applications faster

Use the languages and tools you already know with unified batch and streaming APIs in SQL and Python. Unlock real-time analyticsML and applications for the entire organization.

Automated operational tooling

As you build and deploy streaming data pipelines, Databricks automates many of the complex operational tasks required for production. This includes automatically scaling the underlying infrastructure, orchestrating pipeline dependencies, error handling and recovery, performance optimization and more. Enhanced Autoscaling optimizes cluster utilization by automatically allocating compute resources for each unique workload. These capabilities along with automatic data quality testing and exception management help you spend less time on building and maintaining operational tooling so you can focus on getting value from your data.
