Kinetica Introduces the Developer Edition

Today, Kinetica proudly announces the release of our Developer Edition. Developers can now use the world’s premier Streaming Data Warehouse free forever, to learn the platform, test out new features, and develop locally. It’s never been a better time to try Kinetica.

Getting started is as easy as a one-line install. Simply choose your preferred OS and copy the command into your terminal. The Developer Edition is then yours to explore for as long as you like, so you can develop whenever an idea strikes. You can download it here.

The Kinetica Developer Edition runs on Docker. This simplifies the installation and management of the Kinetica platform, so you can invest your time where it counts. With a few basic commands, you can start, stop, and upgrade Kinetica with ease.

Kinetica’s Developer Edition is packed with functionality. You can ingest as much data as you want on your laptop, write analytic pipelines with SQL and our native APIs, and then build custom apps to visualize the output, or send them to an analytic dashboard tool. The Developer Edition delivers the same vectorized analytics on your laptop’s CPU as the Enterprise Edition. Though limited to a single CPU-based node, the results are wicked fast.
