New capabilities address the growing challenge of data sprawl and how to uncover & analyze dark data
BOSTON, June 20, 2023— Starburst, today, unveiled its data lake analytics platform vision by introducing a series of groundbreaking capabilities on the first day of Starburst Galaxy Launch Week – a four-day event dedicated to shipping new features in Starburst Galaxy. With today’s announcements, Starburst is empowering teams to modernize their data lake strategy by providing a single point of access for teams to discover, govern, and analyze the data in and around their data lake.
The sheer volume of data being produced by companies means data lakes will and should become the center of gravity for any data-driven organization. However, some level of decentralization is inevitable as organizations continue to grow. According to a recent BCG report, more than 50% of the data that some organizations store today is considered “dark data” which means it’s not used to derive insights or for decision making.
Starburst’s fully-managed data lake analytics platform is uniquely designed to enable organizations to illuminate the dark data in and around their lake. Key pillars and new features of the platform include:
Regarding how Starburst Galaxy is delivering value to customers, Simon Thelin, Lead Data Engineer at 7Bridges said, “Starburst Galaxy’s speed and agility has been crucial to helping us scale up our operations. In our BI workloads, we’ve seen queries that used to take 45 minutes execute in under a minute. And, for our data science and data analyst teams that want to get their hands on the data, it’s very easy to attach individual compute resources to those workloads without a bunch of manual tuning.”
This platform announcement also comes on the heels of new connectors between dbt Cloud, Tabular and Starburst Galaxy that allow dbt Cloud and Tabular users to easily build modern open data lake architectures and data pipelines spanning multiple data sources on one central plane. Starburst Galaxy is now generally available and can be implemented in just a few clicks.
“Data teams are bogged down with complexity, often dealing with data silos within their organizations, forced to jump through multiple solutions just to understand what data they have and where it is located before they can even begin to think about its value,” said Justin Borgman, Co-founder & CEO, Starburst. “We believe Starburst Galaxy can act as an architectural centerpiece for modern data lakes that combines low cost commodity infrastructure with open formats and global federated access.”

For data-driven companies, Starburst offers a full-featured data lake analytics platform, built on open source Trino. Our platform includes the capabilities needed to discover, organize, and consume data without the need for time-consuming and costly migrations. We believe the lake should be the center of gravity, and be the starting point for querying disparate data. With Starburst, teams can access more complete data, lower the cost of infrastructure, use the tools best suited to their specific needs, and avoid vendor lock-in. Trusted by companies like Comcast, Grubhub, and Priceline, Starburst helps companies make better decisions faster on all their data.
