Kinesis to PostgreSQL in minutes
Amazon Kinesis is a managed service offered by Amazon that aims to make it easy to collect, process, and analyze streaming data.
Kinesis is a popular choice for streaming backbones because it’s in the AWS ecostystem and relatively simple to set up compared to other data streaming options.
PostgreSQL is one of the most powerful open source relational databases in the world. It’s developed a broad community in its 30-plus year history.
It features ACID transactions and is designed to handle a range of workloads from single machines to distributed architectures with replication.
Estuary helps move data from
Kinesis to PostgreSQL in minutes with millisecond latency.
Estuary builds free, open-source connectors to extract data from Kinesis with millisecond latency, allowing you to replicate that data to various systems for both analytical and operational purposes. Kinesis data exists in a stream and often benefits from being organized into a data lake or warehosue for analytics with history.
Data can then be directed to Postgres using materializations that are also open-source. Connectors have the ability to keep databases as up to date as posible without incurring costs, allowing Postgres to be kept up to date with millisecond latency.
