“The idea that information has to be stored in a data warehouse in order to be analyzed is becoming outdated,” said Borgman. “This webinar will explain how Presto is able to query anything anywhere, and how companies including Airbnb, Facebook, LinkedIn, Netflix, and Uber are benefiting from the analytic agility Presto provides.”

“We are seeing increasing interest in Presto among our clients looking to gain insight from their data, whether it be in Hadoop, S3 or a traditional RDBMS,” said Aslett. “Justin and I hope to demystify Presto for those looking for the ability to run SQL queries on their data no matter where it resides by reviewing the state of the technology, real world production case studies and new data architectures enabled by Presto.”

Starburst was founded by leading developers of the open source Presto project. Starburst’s Enterprise Distribution of Presto provides analysts with the ability to perform fast, interactive queries on data wherever data lives, including popular sources such as HDFS, S3 and S3-compatible object stores, MySQL, Microsoft SQL Server, PostgreSQL, Cassandra, MongoDB, Kafka, and Teradata, among others.
