Today, Starburst announced the general availability of Starburst Galaxy at AWS Summit. Starburst Galaxy is our newly launched fully-managed cloud offering. It is the fastest path from big data to better decisions and now available on Amazon Web Services (AWS). The platform is purpose-built for the cloud providing a flexible and frictionless experience with simplified costs and an intuitive interface. It leverages your existing Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) data lake to reduce the time and complexity of copying and ingesting data so your team can focus on driving business outcomes. Starburst Galaxy runs Starburst’s enterprise-distribution of Trino, the best-in-class open source MPP SQL engine, enabling high performance queries for interactive analytics.
Starburst Galaxy is your path to a lakehouse architecture which acknowledges the idea that taking a one-size-fits-all approach to analytics eventually leads to compromises. Starburst Galaxy will enable you to integrate your data lake, data warehouses and purpose-built stores enabling flexibility in data management, data storage, and data access.
Starburst Galaxy is now available on the AWS Marketplace. You can start a free trial today. After the initial trial period, you can subscribe or continue using Starburst Galaxy’s free tier which allows you to run a single cluster with 5 cost-optimized workers.
Starburst Galaxy is designed for customers who need to quickly access more data with the tools and skills they already have. Key benefits include:
- Access to familiar technologies and tools: Query data from your data lake in Amazon S3 using your favorite business intelligence or SQL-based tool
- Better and faster decision-making on more data for data consumers: Complete lifecycle management of Trino clusters within your own Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC)
- Reduced infrastructure management overhead for data operations pros: Provision and run your first SQL query in under an hour
- Simplify your cloud cost management: Pay-as-you-go pricing based on per hour consumption through the AWS Marketplace
Starburst Galaxy allows new users to get started querying data in a matter of minutes not weeks. You can start analyzing your data in just a few clicks to data in Amazon S3 and relational databases such as Amazon RDS MySQL and Amazon RDS PostgreSQL. The platform includes an integrated SQL editor allowing your team to run SQL queries across all of your data sources directly from Starburst Galaxy. Alternatively, your team can leverage your existing business intelligence tools such as Tableau, Looker, and PowerBI to query data from the source.
Starburst Galaxy is a fully-managed platform eliminating administrative overhead and infrastructure buildout so you can spend less time managing clusters and more time analyzing your data. Operations are fully automated, including provisioning, tuning and configuration traditionally associated with Trino clusters. Starburst Galaxy is built and operated by the originators of the Trino open source project, and comes with built-in maintenance and support including upgrades, patching and access to data experts 24/7.
Starburst Galaxy includes a unified user experience enabling your teams to deliver value quickly with a turnkey environment. It will dramatically simplify your cloud cost management with flexible pay-as-you-go pricing helping you deliver cost predictability by only paying for what you use. The platform also allows you to control costs by setting upper boundaries for cluster sizes, and eliminate over-provisioning with autoscaling.
Get started today with unlimited access to Starburst Galaxy on the AWS Marketplace with a 14 day free trial.
In summary, Starburst Galaxy is the easiest way to tie your data ecosystem together. With Starburst Galaxy, you can spin-up new clusters in a few clicks, start connecting to your existing data sources and query data across these sources using SQL or the business intelligence tool of your choice while having complete cost transparency into your spend.
