Ahana Cloud Advantages

Ahana SaaS Console

The Ahana SaaS Console enables users to create, deploy, resize, stop, restart and terminate one or more Presto clusters for end-to-end life cycle management, preserving cluster configurations and metadata information when clusters are de-provisioned.

Cloud-native with in-VPC managed service

Ahana SaaS Console built natively for AWS runs in the Ahana VPC. Define Presto clusters, and orchestrate and manage them in your AWS account using cross-account roles. Presto runs in containers on Amazon EKS making the service highly scalable & available.

Flexible data source & catalog integration

Define and manage data sources in Ahana and attach or detach them from any cluster with the click of a button. Ahana takes care of configuring and restarting the clusters. Connect external catalogs – Hive Metastore and Amazon Glue, Amazon database services RDS / MySQL, RDS / PostgreSQL, Elasticsearch and Amazon Redshift.

What is Ahana Cloud?

Walk through of the Ahana Cloud Managed Service


Ahana Cloud for Presto on AWS saves me hours and days of time across the configuration, deployment and operations lifecycle. It is as easy as a cloud data warehouse but without copying all my data into it. This allows me to innovate features instead of managing infrastructure. It gives me what I love about Presto with little operational complexity.”
