Groupon adds Redis support to the open source Presto analytic engine.

at October 22nd, 2015

Groupon recently added support for Redis to Facebook’s Presto exabyte scale SQL query engine.

Presto is an open source distributed SQL query engine for running interactive analytic queries against various data sources. Redis is an open-source in-memory key-value data server.

The Redis connector allows querying of live data stored in Redis via SQL queries. This can be used to join data between different systems like Redis and Hive in a single SQL statement.

The Redis/Presto capability allows Groupon to provide value for both consumers and merchants by providing real-time insights via matching real-time customer data such as store foot traffic against historical data stored in Apache Hadoop.

Last year Groupon also added Kafka support to Presto.

One thought on “Groupon adds Redis support to the open source Presto analytic engine.

  1. Is there a way to filter redis data with redis key via presto redis connector? For example: select area_id, sum(amount) sum_amount from charging where substr(timestamp,1,16) > '2016-05-16 18:05:00' and substr(timestamp,1,16) < '2016-05-16 18:10:00' group by area_id column timestamp is the key of redis. thank you for your kind cooperation.
