Presto - SQL Engine for Big Data


Presto is a new open source distributed SQL query engine for interactive analytics on big data. This talk we will discuss the motivation and main design points behind developing Presto at Facebook, and delve into the architecture details. In addition to querying over Hive/HDFS, Presto has an extensible plugin model that enables query capability over other data stores such as Hbase, etc. We will present the current usage of this system at Facebook and other emerging use cases, and also discuss the project roadmap.


Presto is an open source project released under the Apache License. The project has an active community outside of Facebook using and contributing to the project. It's also being used in many other companies such as AirBnb and Dropbox.
