This is Part 2 in a two-part series covering the basics of AQL query performance optimization (you can find Part 1 here).

This Lunch Break covers AQL query performance optimizations for cluster setups. ArangoDB Senior Developer Jan Steemann touches upon some factors that contribute to cluster AQL query performance, namely sharding and replication factor. He also explains some features of ArangoDB Enterprise for co-locating data in a way that minimizes cluster-internal roundtrips and improves performance.
