[Vaccination 2021] How We Build Firebolt (Benjamin Wagner)
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.
This talk is part of the Vaccination Database (Second Dose) Tech Talk Seminar Series.
Benjamin leads Firebolt's query processing team. After studying at TU Munich, he decided to join Firebolt to work on real-world data challenges facing the world's most data-driven companies. He is passionate about all things data and excited by the possibilities arising from academia and industry collaborating to solve some of the hardest problems in data management.
