The 10 Coolest Big Data Tools Of 2022 (So Far)

Rick Whiting

Data is an increasingly valuable asset for businesses and a critical component of many digital transformation and business automation initiatives. Here’s a look at 10 cool tools in the big data management and analytics space that made their debut in the first half of the year.

Ahana Cloud for Presto Community Edition

Ahana develops Ahana Cloud for Presto, a data analytics managed service for querying data stored in AWS S3-based data lakehouses. (Presto is an open-source, high-performance, distributed SQL query engine.)

In June, the company debuted Ahana Cloud for Presto Community Edition, a free version of the company’s service that the company says makes it easier for businesses and organizations to get started with a data lakehouse system using open-source technology.

The open-source edition provides many of the same components of Ahana’s commercial offering – minus some of its enterprise capabilities – to simplify the implementation of a Presto-based data lakehouse system around data stored in AWS S3.

Capabilities in the new offering include distributed Presto cluster provisioning and tuned out-of-the-box configurations for multiple data sources such as the Hive Metastore for Amazon S3, Amazon OpenSearch, Amazon RDS for MySQL, Amazon RDS for PostgreSQL and Amazon Redshift.
