"Stream simplifies processing billions of activities into a simple API for input and output, with performance that would take our team months, if not years, to learn and optimize."

Frequently Asked Questions
I have billions of feed updates, what will Stream cost me?
As soon as you grow out of the PRO plan, Stream’s pricing is tailored to your requirements. Because our feed technology is used by hundreds of companies, we are typically very competitive in terms of pricing. In most cases, Stream’s fees are comparable to the hosting costs of an in-house solution. Contact us to learn more.
How does Stream compare with an in-house solution?
Stream uses a highly optimized solution built in Go, RocksDB, and Raft. Because of this, we are able to charge a much lower price for usage than most in-house solutions. Stream’s cost advantage becomes even larger when you take development and maintenance costs into account.
Can I export my data?
Your data is always yours. If you want to export it from Stream we’ll write a backup to an S3 bucket of your choosing. Our open source Stream-Framework also gives you a good starting point for building your own solution.
Can Stream scale?
Stream's architecture based on Go, RocksDB and Raft is designed to scale as far as our customers need. Stream powers the feeds and chat for over a billion end users, with some apps having hundreds of millions of users.
Do you have pricing examples?
Assume that your social app has 50,000 users. These users add 60,000 activities per month and are on average followed by 50 people. This would lead to approximately 3 million feed updates per month (60,000 * 50). Note that the actual usage will vary heavily based on your user’s activity and how connected your network is.
What defines a feed update?
The number of feed updates depends on how many activities you publish via the API and the number of users who follow those feeds. If you add an activity to a feed that is followed by 50 other feeds, this will trigger 51 feed updates. The only exception is unfollows. The unfollow operation is very heavy on our infrastructure and an additional 25 feed updates are billed for every unfollow operation.
Is there any rate limiting in place?
Yes, Stream has rate limiting in place to ensure system stability. On paid plans these limits are relatively high though and you won’t encounter them during regular usage. Stream has a much lower rate limit on unfollows as the unfollow operation is very heavy on our end.
