Open-Source Trino
(Formerly Presto®)

Get the Presto Guide

Presto is an open source distributed SQL engine for running fast analytic queries against various data sources ranging in size from gigabytes to petabytes. Presto was designed and built from scratch for interactive analytics. It approaches the speed of commercial data warehouses while scaling to the size of very large organizations. Presto was originally developed by Facebook to scale to the data size and performance they needed.

In Fall 2012 a small team of four engineers at Facebook started working on Presto. By Spring 2013, the first version was successfully rolled out within Facebook. Later that year, Facebook open sourced Presto under the Apache License.  In 2018 Martin, Dain, and David left Facebook to pursue building the Presto Open Source Community full-time, under the new name PrestoSQL.

In December 2020, PrestoSQL was rebranded as Trino. Trino (formerly PrestoSQL) brings the value of Presto to a broad array of companies in varying stages of cloud adoption who need faster access to all of their data. Companies like LinkedIn, Lyft, Netflix, GrubHub, Slack, Comcast, FINRA, Condé Nast, Nordstrom and thousands of others use Trino today.
