Many tools exist today for managing increasingly large
collections of data. An important challenge, however, is
that Big Data management tools must be both fast and
easy-to-use. In this talk, we present the Myria
system and service that we have developed in the
database group at the University of Washington
(in collaboration with the eScience Institute).
The service is designed to meet the needs of
modern data scientists, focusing on
performance and productivity. We present an
overview of the design of the tool and details
on some of its query execution and cloud operation features.
