At Facebook, we have spent the past several years in independently building and scaling both Presto and Spark to Facebook scale batch workloads. It is now increasingly evident that there is significant value in coupling Presto’s state-of-art low-latency evaluation with Spark’s robust and fault tolerant execution engine. In this talk, we’ll take a deep dive in Presto and Spark architecture with a focus on key differentiators (e.g., disaggregated shuffle) that are required to further scale Presto.
Presto on Spark is an integration between Presto and Spark that leverages Presto’s compiler/evaluation as a library and Spark’s large scale processing capabilities. It enables a unified SQL experience between interactive and batch use cases. A unified option for batch data processing and ad hoc is very important for creating the experience of queries that scale instead of fail without requiring rewrites between different SQL dialects. In this session, we’ll talk about Presto On Spark architecture, why it matters and its implementation/usage at Intuit.
