The big data and analytics industry excels in innovating to streamline data access and enhance analytics. Yet, the data landscape continues to grow more complex, with diverse data, legacy warehouses, cloud-native apps, and security challenges across on-prem, cloud, and hybrid environments. Starburst continues to lead in innovation and technology, meeting ever-evolving customer data and insight needs. One of these needs is fast access to all their increasingly disparate data, especially for AI and analytics. Organizations want to avoid data teams spending time on data discovery, pipeline building, and costly data movement. The goal is to have these critical data functions focus on high-value analytics and insights.

Available today, the Dell Data Lakehouse, featuring a Starburst-powered Data Analytics Engine, enables organizations to unify and optimize the value of their data estate across on-premises, hybrid, and multi-cloud data sources.  

This latest offering from Dell, a fully integrated data platform built on Dell hardware with a full-service software suite, helps modernize an organization’s data platform and operations. By utilizing Starburst’s query engine, data processes are streamlined. ETL is eliminated, granting organizations fast access to all their data without needing to move data to discover, query, and process all of their data for AI and analytics purposes.

The analytics engine, powered by Starburst, allows organizations to query all their data together without the need to move it. Lastly, this Dell solution reduces data movement and enhances AI and analytics workflows by leveraging Object Storage and open table formats like Iceberg.
