How Starburst Benefits DoorDash

Performance Improvements

With Starburst Enterprise, the team was able to run queries on S3 in ML Spark jobs instead of a data warehouse, which resulted in a 10X to 15X performance improvement in overall run times.

24/7 Support

Starburst’s 24/7 team of Trino experts provided a level of stability and expertise, anticipating needs and next steps to the team as they onboarded and scaled.

Security Enhancements

Multi-factor authentication was missing in open-source Trino, but the Enterprise team was able to enable Okta in just a few weeks.

With Starburst, the future of data analytics looks bright. We hope to achieve our vision of a unified query engine and a secure, single point of access to all of our data with Starburst Enterprise.
