Today at Datanova, we announced our brand new product, Starburst Galaxy, a cloud-native service which provides fast and secure access to all of the data within your organization. Galaxy makes it possible to perform analytics anywhere, without painful data movement and data duplication. Whether you need to analyze data in a data lake, data warehouse, or both, Galaxy has you covered.
Starburst is built on the widely used open source Trino project (formerly known as PrestoSQL). Created by Martin Traverso, Dain Sundstrom, David Phillips and Eric Hwang at Facebook before joining Starburst, Trino was designed to solve the data and scalability challenges seen at large technology companies. Since then, Trino has gained viral adoption and is used at companies like LinkedIn, Lyft, Netflix and many hundreds more.
Over the last three years with Starburst Enterprise, we’ve launched Starburst on AWS followed by Google Cloud Platform and Azure. With our Kubernetes support, Starburst Enterprise can run on virtually any environment. We’ve added 35+ connectors ranging from data lakes to data warehouses, providing our customers with the ability to see the whole story in their data and generate new insights faster than ever.
Starburst Galaxy is the next frontier as we continue to innovate and empower users with fast access to all data. It is a fully automated, cloud-native platform designed for people who analyze data using the tools they already know. In just a few clicks, users have access to data from a variety of sources. Designed specifically for multi-cloud analytics, Starburst Galaxy decreases the time-to-insight with production-ready Trino, built-in security, and an easy-to-use interface.
