Frequently Asked Questions & Examples

What clouds does Starburst Galaxy run on?

Can I sign-up for Starburst Galaxy on my cloud provider’s marketplace?

Yes, you can sign up on the AWS Marketplace, Azure Marketplace and the Google Cloud Marketplace.

Can I run Starburst Galaxy in my own cloud environment?

Starburst Galaxy will connect to your data from the same region for AWS, Google Cloud & Azure to minimize data transfer costs. We don’t deploy the software into your environment to provide the full SaaS experience and take management, security patches and upgrades off your plate. If you are looking to deploy Starburst in your own VPC you should take a look at our self managed Starburst Enterprise offering.

What’s the difference between Starburst Galaxy and Starburst Enterprise?

Starburst Galaxy is managed and maintained by Starburst available on AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud. In comparison, Starburst Enterprise can run on-premise and in AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, and Red Hat Openshift, but are managed and maintained by the customer.

As Starburst Galaxy is a fully-managed offering, patching and upgrades are handled seamlessly providing you instantly with the latest features and performance improvements. However, Starburst Galaxy’s level of customization and configuration will be limited in comparison to Starburst Enterprise.

Is there a charge for additional users?

There is no charge for additional users.

Where should I start with the size of my cluster?

Pricing is fully usage based. You can easily change your cluster sizes at any time. We recommend starting with a smaller size cluster and moving up to a larger size as your SLAs, concurrency or workloads require.
