Our Story

Starburst is on a mission to modernize data access & analytics

Starburst is on a mission to modernize data access & analytics. Our company was founded in an unusual way; with customers and revenue from the beginning. For over a decade, and across three companies, our founding team has been focused on solving the pains of data access – it’s too slow, inflexible, and expensive. Starburst provides a modern solution that addresses these data silo & speed of access problems. We help companies harness the value of open source Presto, the fastest distributed query engine available today, by adding the connectors, security, and 24×7 support that meet the needs for fast data access at scale.
