Ahana Cloud Inc., the self-service analytics company for Presto, released updates to Ahana Cloud for Presto managed service. The major areas of focus include performance, better cluster management, ease of use, and security. One of the key features is the data lake IO caching capability that improves query performance, reducing latencies.
Ahana Cloud for Presto features new capabilities, including:
- Data lake IO Caching -- Data lake IO caching, built on the RubiX open source project, eliminates the need to read data from data lakes.
- Pre-tuned Presto cluster capability -- New clusters now come pre-tuned with more advanced features enabled, including the cost-based optimizer and dynamic filtering.
- Automated and versioned upgrades of Ahana Compute Plane -- Versioning and upgrade infrastructure enhance upgrades -- new features are automatically made available to users.
- The ability to deploy different instance types for Presto coordinator and workers, as well as Ahana-managed Hive Metastore Catalog -- This brings users flexibility to use Presto for a range of workloads and customize resources provisioned as needed.
- Customized IP block allocation for the Ahana-managed Virtual Private Cloud -- Allows users with more restrictive networking environments to use Presto in the cloud.
- Support for asynchronous query execution with Apache Superset in the Ahana Compute Plane -- Ahana manages Apache Superset so that administrators can query and validate which clusters are available for their data teams.
- One click creation of AWS provisioning roles and policies needed with an AWS CloudFormation Template -- This simplifies setting up the initial cross-account access between Ahana and the user’s AWS account.
- Significantly tighter policies and advanced AWS tagging for all Ahana-managed resources in the user’s account -- Ahana’s managed service is deployed in the user’s AWS account, which enables compute to be deployed where the data is without the need for customer data to ever touch Ahana Cloud.
- Integration of Ahana Compute plane with AWS CloudTrail, including log validation -- AWS CloudTrail is a service that enables governance, compliance, operational auditing, and risk auditing of your AWS account. With Ahana’s integration with CloudTrail, you can log, continuously monitor, and retain Ahana-administered account activity and actions across your AWS infrastructure.
