Ariel Weisberg - Facebook - Presto Community Track - Percona Live 2021

Presto at Facebook has evolved significantly since its inception in 2012. In this session, Ariel will discuss this evolution including fundamental architectural improvements on scale and efficiency, the business cases that drive improvements like these, how the Presto use cases at Facebook have grown (and what they are), and how this all is balanced with features that the Presto community looks for. You’ll learn how a company like Facebook thinks about Presto, how it can be used, and where it’s going. ∎

Facebook, Software Engineer

Currently working on Presto @ Facebook.

Previous was Apache Cassandra committer and PMC member

Before that I was the third engineer to start working on VoltDB back when it was incubating in Vertica and we called it Horizontica.

I enjoy developing scalable, reliable, consistently fast distributed systems and applications built on distributed systems as well as enabling other developers to be successful in selecting and using said systems through design, documentation, and implementation.
