Presto has found its place as a SQL-based query engine for big data in the new stack, but it does not have to be limited to big data and large scale analytics applications.

In this presentation, we highlight how Presto helped Zuora to transform its monolithic data architecture for an online transactional system into a loosely coupled, services-based architecture. In doing so it helped us to solve the most pressing problem when splitting up data, providing direct to access production data across many services and enabling complex data queries across live data. Zuora Data Query was an instant success when it was launched.

In this webinar you will discover:

  • The technical architecture that embedded Presto in the Zuora service stack
  • The pieces of Presto we could use directly off the shelf
  • How we productized it into a system that now serves huge numbers of small queries against live data
