Complemented by PrestoCare, Starburst’s Full-Service Offering that Manages Presto Environments

Boston, March 29, 2018 Starburst, the Presto company, today released its Enterprise Distribution of Presto, Version 195e, with the open source query engine’s first Cost-Based Optimizer (CBO). The company also introduced PrestoCare™, Starburst’s managed service offering for customers that want to leverage the power of Presto without the administrative burden.

“Leading internet companies including Facebook, Airbnb, Netflix, Twitter and Uber already benefit from Presto’s performance, but Starburst’s new CBO is another giant leap forward for this open source project,” said Justin Borgman, co-founder at Starburst. “Internal performance testing and customer benchmarking show a greater than 10x performance improvement for many analytical queries such as those in TPC-H and TPC-DS.”
