Carbon is a real-time revenue management platform that consolidates revenue and audience analytics, data management, and yield operations into a single solution. Real-time analytics is super critical – their customers rely on real-time data to make revenue decisions. After facing issues around performance, visibility & ease of use, and serverless pricing model with AWS Athena, the team moved to a managed service for PrestoDB in the cloud – Ahana Cloud – to power their customer-facing dashboards.
Securonix uses Ahana Cloud for Presto to enable extremely fast SQL queries on AWS S3 for ‘Threat Hunting’. “Before Presto we were using a Hadoop cluster, and the challenge was on scale…not only was it expensive but the scaling factors were not linear. The Presto engine was designed for scale, and it’s feature-built just for a query engine. Ahana Cloud made it easy for us to use Presto in the cloud.” – Derrick Harcey, Chief Architect at Securonix
