Materialize is based on differential dataflow, that is based on timelly dataflow. The abstraction works like magic: distributed computation, ordering, consistency, storage, recalculation, invalidations... All those hard to since problems are handled naturally by the computing paradigm. Maybe the product is similar, but not the principles behind

Principles only matter to hackers, but the end result for end users is identical.

It’s just very unfortunate that materialize has a much much bigger marketing team than the datomic people.

Materialized is streaming, Datomic is poll.
