Too Long; Didn't Read

DuckDB is a column-based data store that uses vectorized processing to optimize OLAP workloads. DuckDB Labs is a commercial company formed by the creators of DuckDB in July 2021 to provide support, custom extensions, and even custom versions of the product as a way to monetize it. It is an MIT-licensed open source project whose code is hosted on GitHub and is hosted in the wild. The product is described as a mutant offspring of SQLite and Redshift. The DuckDB code is available in a web-based shell called “duckdb.org”
