Druid is a high performance real-time analytics database. Druid's main value add is to reduce time to insight and action.
Druid is designed for workflows where fast queries and ingest really matter. Druid excels at powering UIs, running operational (ad-hoc) queries, or handling high concurrency. Consider Druid as an open source alternative to data warehouses for a variety of use cases.
You can get started with Druid with our quickstart.
Druid provides a rich set of APIs (via HTTP and JDBC) for loading, managing, and querying your data. You can also interact with Druid via the built-in console (shown below).
Load streaming and batch data using a point-and-click wizard to guide you through ingestion setup. Monitor one off tasks and ingestion supervisors.
Manage your cluster with ease. Get a view of your datasources, segments, ingestion tasks, and services from one convenient location. All powered by SQL systems tables, allowing you to see the underlying query for each view.
Use the built-in query workbench to prototype DruidSQL and native queries or connect one of the many tools that help you make the most out of Druid.
You can find the documentation for the latest Druid release on the project website.
