Starburst Bolsters its Data Lake Analytics Platform to Support Every Cloud Journey Stage

Starburst, the data lake analytics platform, is adding enhancements to both Starburst Galaxy and Starburst Enterprise, supporting customers at every stage of their cloud journeys.

According to the company, as the data lake analytics platform built for optionality, Starburst is committed to meeting customers where they are and supporting those journeys regardless of the stage.

As such, the company has added:

  • Dell storage support for ECS, ObjectScale, and Ceph in Starburst Enterprise: For those just starting their cloud journeys, Starburst is supporting on-premise storage that enables customers to run their business intelligence, analytics, and data science workloads and access data spread across the enterprise using the Starburst's data lake analytics platform.
  • On-premises connectivity in Starburst Galaxy: For those leveraging a hybrid cloud approach, Starburst has added on-prem connectivity that extends Starburst Galaxy beyond the "cloud data source only" world and allows larger, enterprise customers that are in the middle of their move to the cloud to still access their on-prem datasets.
  • Unity Catalog integration in Starburst Galaxy: For those already taking a cloud-centric approach, Starburst Galaxy is integrating with Databricks Unity Catalog to provide an additional metastore alongside AWS Glue, Hive HMS, and Galaxy Metastore so customers have access to and blend modern data sources without migration or reconfiguration.

"There's no doubt that the center of data gravity is in the cloud, but there is also significant value in leveraging data that exists elsewhere and on-prem," said Alison Huselid, SVP of Product at Starburst. "Our new on-prem connectivity means that Galaxy users can now connect to their on-prem data stores and glean value from that data while continuing the cloud migration journey. This connectivity is highly differentiated from other products on the market that require all data to be in a centralized cloud in order to extract its value."
