SQL on the Data Lake: Using open source Presto to unlock the value of your data lake


While data lakes are widely used and have become extremely affordable as data volumes have grown, they are only meant for storage and by themselves provide no direct value. With up to 80% of data stored in the data lake today, how do you unlock the value of the data lake? The value lies in the compute engine, or more commonly the SQL engine, that runs on top of a data lake.

In this webinar, Dipti will discuss why open source Presto has quickly become the de-facto query engine for the data lake. Presto enables ad hoc data discovery where you can use SQL to run queries whenever you want, wherever your data resides. With Presto, you can unlock the value of your data lake.

She will cover:

  • An overview of Presto and why it emerged as the best engine for the data lake
  • How to use Presto to run ad hoc queries on your data lake
  • How you can get started with Presto on AWS S3 today
