Description

Looking to conduct holistic data analysis without waiting for data engineers to move your data from its source? Starburst Enterprise leverages Trino, formerly PrestoSQL, an open-source, distributed SQL query engine, to make better decisions with lightning-fast access to all data, no matter where it lives.


Starburst solves for the intersection of ever-increasing data volumes and data consumers. We help our customers de-prioritize data movement while they give their teams consistent, easy, and fast SQL-based access to all their data to support rapid data analytics. We call this the data consumption layer.


Starburst Enterprise is a data consumption layer that unlocks siloed data by providing fast access to any data source with SQL — the query language your team already knows. And, you can keep all the analytics tools you already use, including Tableau!
