Presto Reference Architectures

General Architecture

Presto is a distributed system that runs on one or more machines to form a cluster. An installation will include one Presto Coordinator and any number of Presto Workers. The Presto Coordinator is the machine to which users submit their queries. The Coordinator is responsible for parsing, planning, and scheduling query execution across the Presto Workers. Adding more Presto Workers allows for more parallelism and faster query processing.
