Session Presenters: Ahana’s Rohan Pednekar, senior product manager; and Meta Developer Advocate Philip Bell.

Session Details: Presto is a widely adopted distributed SQL engine for data lake analytics. With Presto, users can perform ad hoc querying of data in place, which helps solve challenges around time to discover and the amount of time it takes to do ad hoc analysis. Additionally, new features like the disaggregated coordinator, Presto-on-Spark, scan optimizations, a reusable native engine, and a Pinot connector enable added benefits around performance, scale, and ecosystem.

In this session, Rohan and Philip will introduce the Presto technology and share why it’s becoming so popular. In fact, companies like Facebook, Uber, Twitter, Alibaba, and many others use Presto for interactive ad hoc queries, reporting & dashboarding data lake analytics, and much more. This session will show a quick demo on getting Presto running in AWS.
