RudderStack vs. Segment

RudderStack is different than Segment in a few key ways:

We are warehouse-first - we don't persist any of your data, meaning no more silos, no marked up storage cost and no security concerns

We are built for devs - our features are API-first and designed to be integrated into your existing development process

We offer common-sense pricing - Instead of charging for MTUs, our pricing scales transparently on event volume

"The pricing model means you get to focus on building the product and the warehouse-first approach means you don’t need to worry about data privacy."
