Learn the various techniques on how Heimdall's Database Proxy improved throughput and performance:

1) Batch DML operations: intelligently process singleton operations as micro-batches. 2) Intelligently route diverse workloads (i.e. OLTP, OLAP) to Postgres, utilizing Postgres's latest features, such as materialized views for analytic purposes. 3) Auto-caches into GemFire or other cache engines for improved response times without code changes. 4) Easy connection pooling. 5) Automatic write-master failover.

We will be showcasing these features with a demo and follow-up Q/A discussion.
