Efficient Data Store

It's the Event That Matters

With no limits on the number of columns, Honeycomb stores raw events and crunches through them at read time giving you immediate query results plus access to the raw event to fully diagnose the problem.

Locate problems faster and by using interactive visuals, navigate to the exact dataset that needs close inspection. Honeycomb takes advantage of a column-oriented architecture, solid state drives, and industry-standard approximation algorithms to execute your most complex queries, faster.
