With the advent of the public clouds and data increasingly siloed across many locations -- on premises and in the public cloud -- enterprises are looking for more flexibility and higher performance approaches to analyze their structured data. 

Join us for this tech talk where we’ll introduce the Starburst Presto, Alluxio, and cloud object store stack for building a highly-concurrent and low-latency analytics platform. This stack provides a strong solution to run fast SQL across multiple storage systems including HDFS, S3, and others in public cloud, hybrid cloud, and multi-cloud environments. You’ll learn more about:

  • The architecture of Presto, an open source distributed SQL engine
  • How the Presto + Alluxio stack queries data from cloud object storage like S3 for faster and more cost-effective analytics
  • Achieving data locality and cross-job caching with Alluxio regardless of where data is persisted
