PrestoDB SQL - Written In Java.

Presto is a high performance, distributed SQL query engine for big data, written in Java. Its architecture allows users to query a variety of data sources such as Hadoop, AWS S3, MySQL, Cassandra, Kafka, and MongoDB. One can even query data from multiple data sources within a single query. Presto is community driven open-source software released under the Apache License.

Presto was originally designed and developed at Facebook for their data analysts to run interactive queries on its large data warehouse in Apache Hadoop. Before Presto, the data analysts at Facebook relied on Apache Hive for running SQL analytics on their multi petabyte data warehouse. Hive was inadequate for Facebook's scale and Presto was invented to fill the gap to run fast queries. Original development started in 2012 and deployed at Facebook later that year. In November 2013, Facebook announced its release as open source 2013.In 2014, Netflix disclosed they used Presto on 10 petabytes of data stored in the Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3).

In January 2019, the Presto Software Foundation was announced. The foundation is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of the Presto open source distributed SQL query engine.
