This is the fourth episode in our video series, Starburst Elements, focused around anything and everything Starburst. In this episode, our Product Manager Vishal Singh explains how you can get started with Starburst Galaxy.
Last week at the AWS Summit, we announced the general availability of Starburst Galaxy, our fully-managed cloud service. Starburst Galaxy is the streamlined path to getting started using Starburst’s enterprise-grade distribution of open source Trino, the fastest MPP SQL engine. Starburst Galaxy was designed from the ground up with user experience in mind. You can get up and running querying your data sources including S3+Glue, RDS MySQL and RDS PostgreSQL in a matter of minutes. Starburst Galaxy is truly the fastest path from big data to better decisions.
After you’ve connected your data sources, spin-up new clusters with preset configurations designed with best practices in mind in just a few clicks. Starburst Galaxy provides you with cluster profiles designed with your organization’s needs in mind. Choose between a general purpose cluster for diverse workloads, a compute optimized cluster for compute bound applications that benefit from high performance processors or a memory optimized cluster to deliver fast performance on workloads that process large data sets in memory. You can also instantly scale workers as your analytics needs grow without compromising performance. Starburst Galaxy is built at cloud scale to deliver more consistent performance as query loads and your needs increase.
Now that you’re set-up on Starburst Galaxy, you can query directly within the platform with our integrated SQL editor. You can also use the business intelligence tools of your choice to query interactively with the best-in-class SQL engine. Starburst Galaxy allows you to query from multiple data sources removing the delays of building infrastructure and maintaining ETL pipelines. Everything you need to get started unlocking the value in your data is right at your fingertips with Starburst Galaxy.
Starburst Galaxy provides you with the means to focus on driving business outcomes with a guided user experience. It’s designed to eliminate administrative overhead and infrastructure buildout so you can spend less time managing clusters and more time analyzing data.
Starburst, based on open source Trino (formerly PrestoSQL) is the fastest SQL-based MPP query engine. We give your team a common query tool, abstracted from the systems that store your data, that gives them the ability to run analytics on data where it lives. No data movement or copies required. Make faster and better decisions on more complete data.
