AQUA, Advanced Query Accelerator, was designed from the ground up to minimize unnecessary data movement by using large, high-speed caches, custom hardware, and by pushing reduction and aggregation computation closer to rapidly expanding analytics data. AQUA uses hardware acceleration to efficiently filter and aggregate data and minimize data transmission over the network by sending only the results. This new capability enables AWS Redshift to run up to 10x faster than any other cloud data warehouse. As data warehouses continue to grow over the next few years, the network bandwidth needed to move all this data becomes a bottleneck on query performance. AQUA takes a novel approach to cloud data warehousing, AQUA brings the compute to storage by doing a substantial share of data processing in-place on an innovative new query accelerator. In addition, it uses AWS-designed processors and a scale-out architecture to accelerate data processing beyond anything traditional CPUs can do. We are looking for contributors in areas of storage, hardware-software abstraction and co-design, query processing, data and control plane development for multi-tenant, distributed systems, hardware design verification and database performance engineering to help us build this new technology and integrate into analytics platforms.
