case studies

Leading online retailer built an ad-hoc SQL query engine to support 400,000 jobs (15+ PB) daily, on a system with more than 15,000 cluster nodes and a total capacity of 210 PB. Two challenges they faced were around Presto workers reading remotely from HDFS datanodes and a large query variance. With Alluxio and Presto together, has seen a 10x performance improvement, including enhanced syncing for better consistency between Alluxio/Presto and HDFS.

Online gaming company Netease, the operator of popular titles like “World of Warcraft” and “Hearthstone”, needed a data platform to handle 30TB of raw data collected daily. That raw data is processed in ODS tables by ETL jobs which makes it an even larger amount of data. To support high performance ad hoc queries, they turned to Presto and Alluxio to speed up response time of queries for their massive datasets.
