Making speed accessible

If Google took minutes to get your search results, would you still use it? Slow experiences make us stop using products. When data is at the core of your product, speed is mission-critical. Yet businesses find it either extremely difficult or expensive to achieve. Firebolt was created to make high-performance easily attainable, with a data warehouse built for the next generation of analytic applications.
