“We are very excited about our partnership with Presto and Ahana because Ahana provides us the ability to cloudify Presto, in addition to being our conduit to the Presto community. We believe this is the analytics solution of the future, and with Ahana for Presto we’re able to offer our customers data that’s queryable at an extremely fast speed at very reasonable price points. That has significant benefits for our customers.”

Sachin Nayyer, CEO Securonix

“Before Presto we were using a Hadoop cluster, and the challenge was on scale…not only was it expensive but the scaling factors were not linear. The Presto engine was designed for scale, and it’s feature-built just for a query engine. Ahana Cloud made it easy for us to use Presto in the cloud.”

Securonix started with AWS Athena, the serverless Presto service. As their queries scaled, they saw performance degradation due to Athena’s serverless nature.

They benchmarked AWS Athena with Ahana Cloud and saw 3X price performance improvement as a result on different workloads.
