The Facebook Data Infrastructure group built Presto, an interactive query system that could operate quickly at petabyte scale, in 2012. In November 2013, Facebook open sourced Presto under the Apache Software Version 2.0 (APLv2) License. In September 2019, Facebook donated PrestoDB to the Linux Foundation, establishing the Presto Foundation.
The Presto Foundation operates under a community governance model with representation from each of the founding members. With this evolution, Facebook will be collaborating with the broader ecosystem of users and contributors as one voice in the future of the Foundation.

It allows users to use the software for any purpose, to distribute it, to modify it, and to distribute modified versions of the software under the terms of the license, without concern for royalties. PrestoDB is available for anyone to download on Github.
