Presto is a state of the art Distributed SQL Query Engine for BigData, enabling efficient querying on cold data and various data sources. With extended SQL language and features like geospatial queries, joins between different data sources (SQL to join data from HDFS, Elasticsearch, and Kafka anyone?), and the ability to run on containers and cheap servers, Presto is slowly becoming the standard ad-hoc querying engine for BigData.
In this talk, we will present Presto and how it can be used with Kafka. We will discuss data architectures, Presto features and why is it so good for your data, and finally see how it can be leveraged to querying data from Kafka as well as executing a single SQL statement that joins data from Kafka on data from SQL, Cassandra, Elastic and more.
