Comparing Imply and Apache Druid

Apache Druid is the most popular database for modern analytics applications. And, Imply makes the experience even better.


Why choose Imply?

You can sleep better at night

Applications built on Druid are mission-critical. And so uptime, performance, security, and reliability are paramount. Instead of relying on community forums, you can lean on Imply to take away the production angst of deploying and managing an open source project. We are the experts, so you don’t have to be.

You get operations-free performance

Managing a high-performance, distributed cluster can be challenging at scale. You want the speed, but not the work that comes with deploying, operating, upgrading, and scaling Druid.  Our enterprise distribution and cloud service makes Druid effortless. It’s the speed without any complexity.


You free up your developers’ time

Nothing is more important than an engineer’s time. And like with all open source software, you need certain features specific for you. Instead of spending cycles developing them, our distribution is packed with highly-requested features, enhanced security, and a powerful built-in UI.
