HermesDB is the next generation of OLAP engine at Tencent with the architecture featuring separation of storage and calculation. HermesDB characterizes efficient indexing files in storage data, equipping with customized Presto as the core query engine. With the help of Presto connector, HermesDB could not only support full ANSI syntax but also ultilize Apache Lucene as underlying computer core. Besides, we are in the progress of improving the end-to-end performance with the newly released Java Vector APIs, acclecerating different kinds of complex computations with SIMD instructions. According to the benchmark(SSB) we have, HermesDB outperformances other mainstream C++ based MPP engines.
Presto has been adopted at Tencent as scale to serve scenarios of ad-hoc queries and interactive queries for different business units. In this talk, we’d like to share our practice of Presto in production. In details, we’ll talk about our works to further improve the stability, extend the usability, and optimize the performance of Presto. The works all together make Presto better fit in our production environment, which we think will also benefit the community.
