Join us for an insightful session in Bellevue with Ben Roubicek, Sr. Solutions Architect from Qubole. He will be discussing how Presto outshines other SQL data processing engines. Presto is a distributed ANSI SQL engine designed for running interactive analytics queries. Ben will show how Presto works great when used for business intelligence (BI) or data discovery because of its ability to join terabytes of unstructured and structured data in seconds, or cache queries intermittently for a rapid response upon later runs. Presto can also be used in place of other well known interactive open-source query engine such as Impala, Hive or traditional SQL data warehouses.

Qubole Presto, a cloud-optimized version of open source Presto, allows for dynamic cluster sizing based on workload, and terminates idle clusters — ensuring high reliability while reducing compute costs. Qubole customers use Presto either with a SQL workbench or their favorite BI tools, including PowerBI, Looker, Tableau, or any ODBC- and JDBC-compliant BI tool, to explore data and run queries.

At this event, you will learn...

  • Why Presto is better suited for ad-hoc queries than other engines like Apache Spark
  • How to jumpstart analysts across your organization to harness the power of your big data
  • How to generate interactive or ad hoc queries or scheduled reports using Qubole and Presto
  • Real-world examples of companies using Presto
