Presto is a new interactive query system that operates fast at petabyte scale. Pioneered by the big data infrastructure team at Facebook, Presto is great option for use cases that involve fast, interactive, simple queries on large data sets. Presto is simple to use as it relies on familiar ANSI SQL and can query multiple data sources like Hive, HBase and relational DBs. Simple queries can run in just a few hundred milliseconds while more complex queries take only a few minutes due to aggressive pipelining.
Understanding that this technology can be of immediate benefit to you, we have spent a considerable amount of time integrating it into the Qubole Data Service (QDS) platform. QDS allows users to launch Presto clusters and start running queries in minutes.
Here’s a little preview of QDS’s Presto-as-a-Service offering in action:
