StarRocks vs. ClickHouse: The Quest for Analytical Database Performance

In late 2022, ClickHouse released its open source performance benchmark project, ClickBench. This benchmarking tool quickly generated a lot of attention and discussion. Data warehouse vendors and data infrastructure engineers rushed to the site to check out who ranked as the ‘fastest’ analytical database.

We applaud ClickHouse for not only providing such a helpful tool, but also for supporting a culture of healthy competition in the community by vetting and accepting results submitted by other groups. The team behind StarRocks had the pleasure of collaborating with the ClickHouse team to discuss test results, and this experience was nothing short of enlightening.
