Today we are happy to announce the availability of Starburst Enterprise on Alibaba Cloud. After a whirlwind year of major hiring, financing, and growth milestones, we are thrilled to share our latest partnership with Alibaba Cloud, the digital technology and intelligence backbone of Alibaba Group. Alibaba Cloud will deliver Starburst Enterprise to the Greater Chinese market. Through this partnership, Alibaba Cloud is providing engineering to integrate Starburst Enterprise on Alibaba Cloud, as well as providing the sales, services, and support resources needed to deliver a seamless customer experience.
Starburst is currently available on major public and private cloud platforms, including AWS, Azure, GCP, Red Hat, and HPE, but this partnership is a key step in providing the analytics engine for Data Mesh to Alibaba Cloud customers in Greater China. “China, like the rest of the world, has been impacted by the digital pressure spurred on by the pandemic,” said Dr Jia Yangqing, VP of Alibaba Group, Senior Fellow of the Computing Platform, Alibaba Cloud Intelligence. “As long-time users and supporters of the Trino project, we’re very excited to leverage the open-source community and now this enterprise distribution of Starburst on Alibaba Cloud so that large enterprises in China can take advantage of its power to accelerate their digital transformation initiatives in the face of the challenges created by the pandemic.”
Since the beginning, our goal has been to provide our customers with the fastest path from question to outcome. So, we asked ourselves, how can we help companies drive faster time to insight by allowing them to analyze the data where it lives? We recognize that many global organizations are finding it harder and harder to manage their data so we built Starburst Stargate, a brand new capability that combines high-performance connectivity, fine-grained access control, and intelligent query optimization across multiple Starburst clusters in multiple clouds or regions. This feature of Starburst Enterprise compliments our new partnership perfectly. Companies based in China and China-based subsidiaries of multinational companies can now easily leverage these powerful, global analytics and Data Mesh capabilities to build architectures that reflect today’s global nature of business.
