Autonomous ClickHouse Infrastructure with ChistaDATA Cloud


I have been a Database Systems Production Engineer/Site Reliability Engineer for almost two decades, with core interests in Performance, Scalability, High Availability and Data Security across MySQL and PostgreSQL infrastructure operations. I have been working on ClickHouse for the last three years, building real-time analytics for some of the most prominent internet properties at Scale. ClickHouse is a true ColumnStore built for real-time analytics with vectorized query computing capabilities, best suited for time-series and log data equally. Initially, I thought of adding ClickHouse offerings under MinervaDB Inc. ( But, Technically, MinervaDB is engaged in delivering 24*7 Consultative Support and Managed Services for Open Source OLTP Database Systems like MySQL, MariaDB and PostgreSQL. Clickhouse solves real-time analytics for very large volumes of Data. All these eventually led to starting of ChistaDATA Inc. (, funded by Sequoia Capital ( with a core commitment to building ClicHouse Infrastructure Operations Services for both on-premises and Cloud.
