Get Started    Guides

Our product

SlicingDice is the All-in-One Data Warehouse and Analytical Database as a Service.

We call SlicingDice an All-in-One Data Warehouse because it includes a specialized database optimized for analytics and has all necessary built-in tools to integrate, explore, visualize and use machine learning with data, at a single price and without concerns about any maintenance at all.

SlicingDice can handle datasets of any size, but it really shines on the largest datasets (billions of rows or more) and complex queries. That's because it was built from scratch to guarantee performance, in cases where normal SQL or NoSQL databases would fail or make your life much harder.

Features

The main features are:

  • It's All-in-One. We provide you a built-in Loading & Sync, Data Visualization and Machine Learning tools for a single price.
  • It's unbelievably fast. We support batch and streaming inserts. We also have an SLA for querying data in 10 seconds or less.
  • It's the cheapest option. This is enabled by our state-of-the-art compression capabilities. We've built our own technology from the ground up, heavily focused on data compression.
  • It's a serverless platform. No server administration, tuning or monitoring needed.
  • It's near-schemaless. We support structured and semi-structured data.
  • It's totally reliable. We have three independent datacenters fully replicated.
  • It's very easy and flexible. We have SQL-92 support, JDBC/ODBC drivers and a powerful API for developers.

You can understand better SlicingDice's main features and its performance compared to our competitors while reading this documentation.

Pricing

We give you the flexibility to select between two different pricing models:

  • If you pay-per-gigabyte stored, you pay based on the space it takes to store your data on SlicingDice
  • If you pay-per-column used on your database, you can store unlimited rows in your database, for a fixed price for each column you have.

Both options leverage the database compression technology we created, making SlicingDice the cheapest solution on the market. Confirm that by checking our competitor's price comparison page.
