Why Presto?
In the pantheon of SQL-on-Hadoop offerings, I don't hear about Presto too much. Why not recommend Spark SQL, Impala, Drill, a true relational database (HAWQ/Greenplum or Vertica) on Hadoop, or, for that matter, the greatly improved Hive in Hadoop 2.0 that more people are using than any other SQL-on-Hadoop option out there? What does Presto have going for it other than the fact that it's offered by Qubole?

Resolved: sensational headlines should be ended
Judging by his intro, Ashish wishes to elminate confusion, wasted dollars and sensational headlines. Agreed. And good luck on the latter.

Re: Why Presto?
"Facebook uses it" is not much of an answer as to why it has technical superiority over other SQL-on-Hadoop offerings. What's the query latency vs. Hive and what's the breadth and depth of SQL or SQL-like support? Readers want to know about performance, versatility and familiarity to SQL developers.
