Performance is in SingleStore’s DNA. Last March, we shattered the trillion-rows-per-second scan barrier for processing a single SQL query on industry-standard Intel servers. That query processed data from a single table, and of course, lots of analytical queries use multiple tables, particularly star schemas.
