We had a great event with some in-depth, detailed questions from the audience. Check out the recording to learn more:

Join us to discover how as part of their customer data platform, Arm Treasure Data utilizes Presto as the query engine processing over 1 million queries per day. This system supports the data business of over 500 companies in three regions - US, EU, and Asia.

Arm Treasure Data has been using Presto 0.205 and in 2019 started a big migration project to Presto 317. Although they performed extensive query simulations to check any incompatibilities, the team faced many unexpected challenges. In this session you learn more about their migration of the production system:

  • Technical details on many challenges
  • Key lessons learned
  • Latest updates on AWS Graviton2, the next generation of 64-bit Arm instance types that can be used for running Presto

Our speaker, Taro L. Saito, is a principal software engineer at Arm Treasure Data and Ph.D. of computer science at the University of Tokyo. He has built a cloud database service at Arm Treasure Data, which is processing over millions of queries every day. Previously, he worked as an assistant professor at the University of Tokyo, studying distributed database systems and their applications to genome sciences. He has created several open-source projects, including Airframe, MessagePack, and various sbt plugins (sbt-sonatype, sbt-pack) for Scala that help to publish thousands of OSS projects.
