For some, the thought of analytics and high QPS (queries per second) together may seem unlikely. After all, we typically think of analytics as the occasional report and dashboard into business metrics.

But, analytics use cases are evolving with high volume, low latency queries on the rise. Companies like Confluent, Target, and Pinterest use analytics for much more than weekly executive summaries. They’re making analytics available across their organizations; their teams are exploring high-dimensional raw data in a free-flowing, ad-hoc nature; and they’re powering analytics applications and data products for 1000s to millions of external users and customers.
