Is ClickHouse fast?

The developers at Yandex designed ClickHouse to be fast and have a very good query execution performance. ClickHouse uses all the available hardware to its maximum potential, with peak processing performance for a single query standing at 2 TB/second. In a distributed setup, the reads are balanced automatically among the healthy replicas so as to reduce the overall latency.

What is the difference between a column-oriented and a row-oriented database?

Column stores are relational databases that store data by columns rather than rows. A traditional database is usually row-based, where the attributes of one instance are stored together in a row, followed by the attributes of the next row. However, in a column-oriented database, one logical file per attribute is used. This structure makes it possible to read and pull out only the columns you need for a query, without accessing the unrelated or redundant data.
