Real-Life Experiences from Testing Aiven for ClickHouse

Aiven for ClickHouse beta was tested by companies from a wide range of industries, who have the need to gain real-time insights.

One of the early testers was Chatlayer by Sinch – a company providing AI-powered chatbot solutions to their customers. The Chatlayer solution includes advanced analytics capabilities to provide insights into the customers conversations, and when testing Aiven for ClickHouse in this area the results were very positive.

“We were positively surprised with the performance of Aiven for ClickHouse – it is really fast,” said Miguel Carvajal, Technical Lead at ChatLayer. “And thanks to the excellent data compression, we were able to save on costs compared to our previous solution.”
