Today’s data ecosystems are more complex than ever before.  Data is stored in a variety of locations and in numerous different formats.  As a result, being able to quickly and easily access all of the data you need in a cost efficient manner is becoming increasingly difficult. With Starburst, organizations are able to make better decisions faster by accessing their data directly, no matter where it lives.  By reducing (or even eliminating) the need for data pipelines to consolidate the data into a single source of truth to support analytics, organizations are able to cut down on costs typically associated with those workflows.  Starburst also delivers lightning-fast performance against any data source, including traditionally slower sources like data lakes.  This is why Starburst is THE analytics engine for all of your data.

Starburst leverages Trino, formerly PrestoSQL, which is an open-source, Massively Parallel Processing (MPP) SQL query engine. Starburst solves for the intersection of ever-increasing data volumes and data consumers by helping customers de-prioritize data movement while providing data teams consistent, easy, and fast SQL-based access to all their data to support rapid analytics. Starburst is able to provide these benefits to customers due to the following features:

  • 40+ native connectors for a variety of data sources (on-prem, cloud, RDBMS, NoSQL, streaming and data lakes/object storage)
  • Built-in federation with optimization pushdown
  • Caching of frequently accessed data for even faster performance
  • On-demand compute with automatic scaling
  • Simplified security and access controls across all of your data
  • Support for cross-cloud analytics
  • Data Products for publishing domain-specific data sets

By using Starburst with Collibra, you will be able to simplify your cataloging operations.  With Starburst, you no longer need to create separate connections in Collibra for each data source in your ecosystem.  Instead, you create a single connection to Starburst and will be able to ingest the metadata for all of the data sources your Starburst cluster is connected to.

What business problem does it solve?

Starburst provides users with fast access to all of their data, no matter where it lives.  Starburst connects directly to each data source and pulls the data back into memory for processing, alleviating the need to copy or move the data into a single location first.  As a result, Starburst helps organizations solve their business problems by addressing the following use cases:

What is the license model?

While the open source technology that Starburst is built on (Trino) is free to use, Starburst provides numerous enterprise-grade features including enhanced connectors, native security integrations, optimized performance and 24×7 support.  To get access to these features, an enterprise license must be purchased from Starburst.

Licensing is done at the cluster level and not the user level.  A capacity-based pricing model is used and is calculated based on the number of vCPUs that are running in the cluster.
