“Since its public release almost five years ago by Facebook, Presto has been adopted by progressive businesses and government agencies alike, for good reason. Presto is the fastest open-source distributed query engine, making it easier and less expensive to analyze big data, anytime, anywhere,” said Justin Borgman, co-founder at Starburst. “We’re looking forward to presenting Starburst’s recently contributed cost-based query optimizer for Presto, listening to our customer FINRA’s session about using Presto in the cloud and gaining insight from Facebook’s lead developers about the state of Presto and its growing community. In addition, the user sessions by Facebook, LinkedIn, Lyft, Netflix and Uber promise to reveal valuable information about production deployments.”

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.
