ClickHouse is fast and scalable open source SQL DBMS from Yandex. In this talk, I will briefly review what's new in 2018, and concentrate on advice and case studies how ClickHouse can solve immediate problems without significant investments of time and resources. ClickHouse can handle petabytes of data, but it perfectly works for smaller projects, thanks to its performance and easy integration with MySQL, Logstash and other open source technologies.
