Security & Access Controls
Starburst allows the team at Priceline to apply fine-grained access controls to unstructured datasets – a capability the company lacked previously – and strengthens security with regards to their distributed datasets.
Cloud Storage Savings
Starburst separates storage and compute, so Priceline can move a significant volume of that data into an unstructured format and reduce its storage costs by 5X to 10X – without surrendering access.
Previously, data processing required ETL, so by the time Priceline had the data to make a decision, at least a day or two had passed. Now, Priceline is accelerating that timeline to decisions being made in near real-time.
