Presto Connector Development

Presto stands out from other query engines through its unique connector ecosystem. Connectors enable Presto to query data from a variety of different data sources, some of which include relational databases, HDFS files, Object stores (S3, Azure) and NoSQL stores like Cassandra.

Starburst has created many certified connectors for Presto and has also made open source connectors enterprise grade via performance testing, bug fixes, and various enhancements.
