Many systems for the parallel processing of big data are available today. Yet, few users can tell by intuition which system, or combination of systems, is “best” for a given workflow. Porting workflows between systems is tedious. Hence, users become “locked in”, despite faster or more efficient systems being available. This is a direct consequence of the tight coupling between user-facing front-ends that express workflows (e.g., Hive, SparkSQL, Lindi, GraphLINQ) and the back-end execution engines that run them (e.g., MapReduce, Spark, PowerGraph, Naiad).

In this talk, I will present Musketeer, a system that decouples the ways workflows are defined from the manner in which they are executed. Musketeer dynamically maps front-end workflow descriptions to a broad range of back-end execution engines. Without requiring any manual porting effort, users now have a choice of many systems. Musketeer currently supports four high-level query languages and generates code for seven popular data processing systems, in some cases speeding up realistic workflows by up to 9x.
