Presto at Adroitts

Adroitts’ mission is to build secure, reliable and cost-effective products for their customers. When it comes to data analytics, they must be able to link transactions to respective customers with their profile information to get the full view of the customer. They chose Presto as the underlying query engine to do this.

Phase 1: AWS Athena for serverless Presto

Adroitts chose Presto as the underlying analytics engine. For their first phase, they implemented AWS Athena (serverless Presto). While easy to get started, as Adroitts scaled they started running into challenges.


  • No control over the compute engine
  • Hard to run complex queries at higher scale
  • Limited concurrency
  • Queries may get queued up
