Founder of OnGres, he is dedicated to R&D in databases. Álvaro founded ToroDB, previously the “Billion Tables Project” and keeps working on innovative open source solutions for databases, specially PostgreSQL. On his free time he also contributes to open source and PostgreSQL, like SCRAM's support in PostgreSQL's JDBC driver.

Welcome to the first database, non benchmarketing, benchmark! We could discuss feature set, operational reliability, language/API compatibility, and many other topics. But to be the fastest always matters!

Join us on journey about performance. The final takeaway is not the result, but the process: how to benchmark, how to measure, how to exercise different capabilities of the databases. How is it possible to compare databases that are oranges and lemons. But above all, this is a journey about performance optimization and production-quality environments, as we wanted to benchmark precisely this, and not “synthetic” or “lab” setups.

Don’t let others tell you the final result: watch the process and judge with your own eyes.
