Just like a real wormhole, this tool is all about speed.

This blog introduces Wormhole, an open-source Dockerized solution for deploying Presto and Alluxio clusters for blazing-fast analytics on file system (we use S3, GCS, OSS). When it comes to analytics, generally people are hands-on in writing SQL queries and love to analyze data that resides in a warehouse (e.g. MySQL database). But as data grows, these stores start failing and there arises a need for getting the faster results in the same or a shorter time frame. This can be solved by distributed computing and Presto is designed for that. When attached to Alluxio, it works even more, faster. That’s what Wormhole is all about.

Here is the high-level architecture diagram of solution:
