Change Feeds enable SurrealDB to play a role within the wider ecosystem of enterprise, cloud, or micro-service based platforms, giving users the ability to retrieve and sync changes from SurrealDB to external systems and platforms.
Internally, in the future, Change Feeds will enable SurrealDB to handle long-running tasks, including the building and re-building of unique, full-text-search, and vector indexes, asynchronously, without any downtime or blocking.
SurrealDB tracks all of the changes made to table data by any user, whether running as an embedded or single-node instance, or if running in a distributed cluster with multiple SurrealDB nodes.
Change Feeds enable data integrity, data backup, and consistency across systems and environments. From ingesting data into third-party systems, archiving data to object storage for backup or analysis purposes, or for real-time synchronisation with other platforms, Change Feeds are a core feature for the enterprise.
The query language in SurrealDB looks and works similarly to traditional-SQL, but allows for querying over time-series and connected graph data. SurrealQL is an advanced query language, with programming language functionality, that allows developers or data analysts to work with SurrealDB in the ways they choose.
Live Queries in SurrealDB enable a simple yet seamless way of building modern, responsive applications, whether connecting to SurrealDB as a traditional backend database, or when connecting directly to the database from the frontend.
SurrealDB is designed for building applications of any size - and for that, query performance, and improved data analysis workloads are key. With SurrealDB secondary indexes, you can now index data using traditional indexes, full-text search indexing, and vector-embedding search for artificial intelligence use cases.
SurrealML enables machine learning models to be greatly simplified, ensuring reproducibility and consistency in machine learning pipelines. Running on our Rust engine, models can be built in Python, and imported in to SurrealDB for inference within the database runtime.
