HPE Ezmeral Unified Analytics is an end-to-end data & AI/ML platform that consists of several popular open-source frameworks for data engineering, data analytics, data science, & ML engineering in a well-integrated packaging. These open-source frameworks include Apache Spark, Apache Airflow, Apache Superset, PrestoDB, MLFlow, Kubeflow, and Feast. This platform is built atop Kubernetes and provides built in security. In this talk we will focus on the role of PrestoDB in Unified Analytics as a fast SQL query engine, and also as a secure data access layer. We will discuss some of our value-additions to PrestoDB, such as a distributed memory-centric columnar caching layer that provides both explicit and transparent caching for dataset fragments, often leading to 3x to 4x query performance. We will conclude by proposing to make caching pluggable in PrestoDB and discussing future directions.
PrestoDB is built to be cloud agnostic and container-friendly, but getting it to run on Kubernetes in the cloud can be challenging. In this talk, Gary Stafford (AWS) and Dipti Borkar (Ahana) will discuss: Why use the in-VPC deployment model with AWS and demo, etc – Deploying PrestoDB on AWS EKS using the Ahana Cloud managed service within the user’s AWS account.
Hadoop era is gone. Cloud computing is today’s reality. But… What if you cannot use public clouds? What if your cloud does not provide data platform capabilities? What if you want your solution to be cloud agnostic? In this case you create your own cloud native data platform on Kubernetes. In the session Denis will talk about reasons for building analytics data platform solution in Platform24, cloud native data platform architecture principles, data stack they use and why Presto plays one of the key roles in it.
