Facebook has revealed a query engine for data warehouses that blows the doors off Hive, and plans to publish it as open source this year.

The "Presto" technology is a query execution engine built for Facebook's vast data warehouse. It was announced on Thursday at a data analytics conference hosted at Facebook's HQ in Menlo Park, California. Presto gets rid of some of the failings of Hive – the Hadoop data-warehouse tool – and highlights how the Hadoop ecosystem is maturing.

This is pretty cool stuff, big data technology and all. The pursuit of performance thumb.gif

I might not mind this. As long as there truly is transparency; when you give the community access to the code, the community does a damn fine job of policing it. Big Data is cool, so long as it's not invasive. thumb.gif

Interesting. I wonder what license they'll publish it under. I'm hoping for BSD but that seems like a pipe dream. Probably more like Apache.
