Presto at Zuora

The Presto Summit is morphing into a series of virtual events, and we already started with the State of Presto webinar recently. Next up is a talk about Presto with lots of practical insights at Zuora presented by Henning Schmiedehausen:

Using Presto as Query Layer in a Distributed Microservices Architecture

Presto has found its place as a SQL-based query engine for big data in the new stack, but it does not have to be limited to big data and large scale analytics applications.

In this presentation, Henning highlights how Presto helped Zuora to transform its monolithic data architecture for an online transactional system into a loosely coupled, services-based architecture. In doing so it helped to solve the most pressing problem when splitting up data, providing direct to access production data across many services and enabling complex data queries across live data. Zuora Data Query was an instant success when it was launched.

In this webinar you discover:

  • The technical architecture that embedded Presto in the Zuora service stack
  • The pieces of Presto that could be used directly off the shelf
  • How we productized it into a system that now serves huge numbers of small queries against live data

Our speaker, Henning Schmiedehausen, Chief Architect at Zuora, is a thought leader in the open source Java community with more than 25 years of experience contributing to successful open source projects. At Zuora he serves as the chief architect and is responsible for the technical aspects of transforming the Zuora system to a new, scalable, and flexible Microservices Architecture. Prior to Zuora he worked at Facebook and Groupon as a principal engineer. Henning also served as a board member at the Apache Software Foundation
