Interactive BI Analytics with Presto
Presto, an open source distributed SQL engine, is widely recognized for its low-latency queries, high concurrency, and native ability to query multiple data sources. Proven at scale in a variety of use cases at Airbnb, Facebook, LinkedIn, Lyft, Netflix, Twitter, and Uber, in the last few years Presto experienced an unprecedented growth in popularity in both on-premises and cloud deployments over Object Stores, HDFS, NoSQL and RDBMS data stores.
From the start, Presto was targeting interactive BI analytics involving heterogeneous data sources. Recent improvements like aggregation pushdown, dynamic filtering, data masking and supporting new data sources including Druid, Delta Lake and Elasticsearch, pushed that use case to the next level.
During the talk Lukasz and Karol will give a quick introduction to Presto in general, as well as some of its advanced features. They will show a demo, how it works in practice. In addition, they will demonstrate how to integrate different data sources in a data protected environment.
