The iguazio Enterprise Data Cloud platform supports simultaneous, consistent and high-performance access through multiple industry standard and Amazon-compatible streaming, as well as table, object, and file APIs. Users can ingest any type of data using a variety of protocols and concurrently read the data using a different method. For example, one application can ingest an event stream while another application reads that data as a table or file.
The data store is decoupled from the stateless API layer and is based on a unique modeling concept where any type of data is stored in a normalized and search-optimized form just once, and transformed on the fly, eliminating the need for copies, complex pipelines, and long ETL processes.
Among the supported APIs, a set of RESTful APIs enables applications to send data directly from any client without installing additional components on the client side or developing API services, significantly simplifying the data ingestion process.
