Recently, I was working on building a new Logs dashboard at Fossil to serve our internal team for log retrieval, and I found ClickHouse to be a very interesting and fast engine for this purpose. In this post, I'll share my experience with using ClickHouse as the foundation of a light-weight data platform and how it compares to another popular choice, Athena. We'll also explore how ClickHouse can be integrated with other tools such as Kafka to create a robust and efficient data pipeline.
More than 200+ companies are using ClickHouse today. With many features support, it's equally powerful for both Analytics and Big Data service backend.
