Kudu vs Presto: What are the differences?
Developers describe Kudu as "Fast Analytics on Fast Data. A columnar storage manager developed for the Hadoop platform". A new addition to the open source Apache Hadoop ecosystem, Kudu completes Hadoop's storage layer to enable fast analytics on fast data. On the other hand, Presto is detailed as "Distributed SQL Query Engine for Big Data". Presto is an open source distributed SQL query engine for running interactive analytic queries against data sources of all sizes ranging from gigabytes to petabytes.
