> Beating BEAM's performance is not hard.

Interesting observation. The hype I've heard around Elixir and Phoenix makes it sound like BEAM's performance is amazing. But maybe that's only in comparison to Ruby (specifically the C Ruby interpreter).

Beam’s performance is amazing if you are interested in context switching micro processes.

As long as you're not actually doing anything in those processes ;)
