Enterprise data challenges

In today’s complex data ecosystem, the business asks a question of the data, and data engineers struggle with providing answers in a timely manner. Large enterprises are constantly trying to solve the following problems:

  • Lack holistic data analysis for faster, better decision making
  • Increasing data costs and complexity
  • Poor performance with very large volumes of data
  • Adherence to enterprise security and governance

Shift to a single point of access

Starburst solves for the intersection of ever-increasing data volumes and ever-increasing data consumers. The historical approach of constantly moving data into a single-source-of-truth method is no longer possible — there’s too much data, and too many people trying to ask new questions of the data. We help our customers de-prioritize data movement while they give their teams consistent, easy, and fast SQL-based access to all their data. We call this the data consumption layer.

“The decision to deploy Starburst Enterprise was made simpler because it has proven to be a reliable, fast, and stable query engine for S3 data lakes.”

How it works

The data consumption layer


Starburst Enterprise is a data consumption layer that unlocks siloed data by providing fast access to any data source, via SQL — the tool language your team already knows and then can be utilized in the analytics tool you already use. With advanced security features — this data consumption layer provides a secure single-point-of-access for all your data.
