BOSTON – March 24, 2022 – Starburst, the analytics anywhere company, today announced that it has been selected as the “Data Access Solution of the Year” in the 2022 Data Breakthrough Awards for the second consecutive year. The program is conducted by Data Breakthrough, an independent market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global data technology market today. 

Starburst provides the fastest SQL query engine for analytics on data anywhere; On a warehouse, data lake, or across a distributed Data Mesh. Starburst helps companies unlock the value of distributed data by making it fast and easy to access, no matter where it lives, removing the need to move data before analyzing it. Starburst customers benefit from significantly decreased time to insight which yields faster data-driven decisions.  

Starburst recently launched Starburst Galaxy, the industry’s first cross-cloud analytics solution for enterprises. Starburst Galaxy enables customers to query data across all three major cloud providers (AWS, Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure), eliminating data silos and challenges of the past.

Starburst also recently launched Starburst Stargate and enhanced its flagship product, Starburst Enterprise to accelerate customers’ time-to-insights. Based on open-source Trino, Starburst Enterprise addresses data silos & speed of access problems, while providing critical features to ensure security, scalability, ease of deployment, and support. 

“Thanks so much to Data Breakthrough for honoring us for a second year in a row with this incredible accolade. Since Starburst’s inception in 2017, we set out to enable organizations to modernize their data analytics by solving the pains of data access,” said Justin Borgman, CEO and co-founder of Starburst. “We help organizations treat data as a first-class product, which has fueled our record growth over the last year. By enabling the adoption of Data Mesh architectures, we’re empowering organizations across the globe to become truly data-driven while freeing data teams from costly, time-intensive data management tasks.”

The annual Data Breakthrough Awards is the premier awards program founded to recognize the data technology innovators, leaders and visionaries from around the world in a range of categories, including Data Analytics, Big Data, Business Intelligence, Data Storage and many more. The third annual Data Breakthrough Award program attracted more than 1,850 nominations from across the globe.

“It’s apparent that today’s modern enterprises are demanding cross-cloud flexibility. Though many of these expect to eventually have all of their data in the cloud, what they are greatly in need of when it comes to cloud data storage is flexibility to access data from multiple clouds,” said James Johnson, Managing Director, Data Breakthrough. “Starburst is breaking through the crowded data technology market by enabling companies to unlock the value of their data through fast and easy access, regardless of where the data is located. Congratulations to Starburst for being our pick for ‘Data Access Solution of the Year’ for the second year running.”
