Benchmarking Apache Druid

Apache Druid is designed for high-performance query response across a variety of data sources. This talk explains how we evaluated Druid’s performance using the Star Schema Benchmark (SSB). The SSB describes a data schema and a set of queries that measure query performance of commercial and open-source databases using a data warehouse style workload. When selecting a database for analytics, it is imperative to align the platform’s strengths with its desired usage. Join us to learn about Druid’s architecture and how to performance test it, including a step by step methodology that digs deep into tools and scripts that you can use to benchmark Druid in your environment to see how fast it is at your use case.
