Title: Powering Scalable Data Warehousing With Robust Query Performance

Napa powers Google’s data warehouse needs for critical clients like Ads and payments. These clients have differing requirements around cost, performance, and data freshness, including a strong expectation of variance-free, robust query performance. At its core, Napa’s principal technologies for robust query performance include the aggressive use of materialized views, which are maintained consistently as new data is ingested across multiple data centers. In this talk we will discuss Napa’s architecture, and how it is able to cater to multiple clients.

This talk is part of the Vaccination Database (Second Dose) Tech Talk Seminar Series.
