Benchmarks are all about making choices: what kind of data will I use? How much? What kind of queries will users run? How you make these choices matters a lot: change your assumptions and the fastest warehouse can become the slowest.

George Fraser is Co-founder and CEO of Fivetran, a fully-managed data pipeline built for analysts. Fivetran is a Y Combinator-backed with over 300 customers relying on it to centralize their data. When Fivetran began in 2012, they realized that ETL tools were ill-equipped for modern companies who rely on cloud applications and databases.

To meet the needs of analysts in this new era, Fivetran built the only zero-maintenance data pipeline on the market and is now part of a growing ecosystem of cloud infrastructure that gives organizations control of their data without heavy engineering.
