How Presto Works


Starburst Global Security

In this webinar, Starburst Director of Customer Solutions, Tom Nats, reviews how Starburst global security can help your organization. Presto enables access to data from virtually any source, which means that global security settings are critical.

Presto Founders
The State of Presto Featuring The Creators of Presto

Join Presto co-creators Martin Traverso, Dain Sundstrom, and David Phillips to talk about the Presto roadmap and recent releases followed by a live Q&A moderated by Presto Committer Hall-of-Famer Piotr Findeisen.

Starburst Presto Architecture
Presto Overview: Fast SQL On Anything

Starburst CTO, Kamil Bajada-Pawlikowski explains:

The Presto architecture, Presto’s separation of compute & storage, How to Operate & Scale Presto, Federating SQL queries across disparate data sets

Query Federation w/ Looker

We demonstrate how to use Looker to federate queries to data in a variety of sources including popular open data formats ORC and Parquet as well as creating a federated semantic layer and accessing it using Looker.

Starburst Enterprise Presto
New Release: Starburst Enterprise 332-e

This release is packed with new features that improve speed of data access with caching to accelerate Presto performance, and a Native Delta Lake Reader to provide fast SQL-based analytics to companies using Delta Lake, and improved security with Global Access Control for fine-grained access control across all data sources

Starburst Mission Control
Introducing Mission Control: A Presto Management Tool

Mission Control is a management tool that enables data architects to easily create, access, and manage multiple Starburst clusters from a single, unified, easy-to-use UI. 

Additionally, Mission Control makes it simple to connect to any data sources and can be deployed anywhere.

Presto on Kubernetes

We examine Presto on Kubernetes makes deploying and using Presto across hybrid and multi cloud environment much simpler.

Starburst Presto Consumption Layer
Building A Federated Semantic Layer

We look at how to build a federated semantic layer using Starburst.

Topics include best practices, securing and masking data, creating and exposing different “layers” of data, and separating workloads and access using multiple Presto clusters

Starburst Delta Lake Reader 332e
Bringing Fast SQL Access to Data in Delta Lake

Our latest release introduced a native Delta Lake reader to Starburst Enterprise. We explore how Databricks customers can now take advantage of the speed, concurrency, and scalability that Presto is known for, to query their Delta Lake. This gives joint Starburst + Databricks clients greater cost control, flexibility, and speed of access to mutable data in data lakes.

Presto Role-based Access Controls (RBAC)
Securing Presto

Starburst for Presto security best practices including: 

Securing Presto in a distributed environment, Authentication via user directory services, Role-based access control to databases, tables, and columns

Using Presto as a Query Layer in a Distributed Microservices Architecture

Henning Schmiedehausen, Chief Architect at Zuora, highlights how Presto helped Zuora to transform its monolithic data architecture for an online transactional system into a loosely coupled, services-based architecture.

Presto at Pinterest

In this August 19, 2020 Presto Summit Webinar, Pucheng Yang & Yi He of Pinterest’s engineering team join us to discuss how Presto is used to meet the company’s rapidly increasing analytics need while keeping costs low.
