Title: How We Build Firebolt

Data-driven companies are increasingly building customer-facing analytics products. These workloads demand lower latency, higher concurrency, and more predictable query performance than ever before – demands that traditional data warehouses struggle with. In this talk, Benjamin explains how Firebolt is designed to welcome this new generation of data challenges.
