In this section, we will introduce some use cases which SlicingDice is good at, if your use case is similar to the ones presented here SlicingDice will probably be greatly helpful to you.
Usually, relational databases struggle with queries that JOIN many tables. Our state-of-the-art database engine allows anyone to run queries with multiple columns and receive the results really fast. As an example, SlicingDice can find out without problems which
video-games pages more than
5 times in the
last week, even if your website is accessed by millions of users every day.
From day 1, SlicingDice was built to handle billions of rows and thousands of queries without bottlenecks. For applications with large data volumes, SlicingDice will be much faster than the well-known relational or NoSQL databases.
Being a Data Warehouse and Analytics Database as a Service means you don't need to maintain your own infrastructure. Especially in small companies or academic projects, this can save a lot of time and money which can be better applied in your own business.
Since one of our two pricing models is based on the number of columns you have on your database (pay-per-column), you will be able to store and query data in a pretty cost-effective way. For example, industries placing sensors and other Internet of Things devices in their factories won't be charged by the amount of data they send to SlicingDice.
SlicingDice is perfect when you have lots of temporal data. For instance, you might be interested in monitoring your servers and check their performance and stability in near-real-time. To achieve that, you need to store every server metric product in the last 24 hours and check the average performance and possible outliers.
In some use cases, such as Internet of Things projects, running a database server is undesirable, even more when the data being processed isn’t large. Also, renting a server is usually more expensive than SlicingDice's minimum charge of $ 1.00.
Nevertheless, no database is able to fit every possible use case on Earth, neither does SlicingDice.
