Starburst announces $42m series B: We're Hiring!
Fast, free, distributed SQL query engine for big data analytics
Presto is a distributed SQL query engine, originally developed and open sourced by Facebook for large-scale, interactive analytics. Starburst is a more feature-rich version of Presto developed by Starburst Data, providing enhanced Presto query performance, security, connectivity, and ease of use.
Starburst includes a cost-based query optimizer which improves Presto query performance, by over an order of magnitude faster in many cases.
Faster query throughput allows you to answer more with less. Benchmarks show Starburst providing 125x better price-performance than Amazon’s Presto on AWS EMR.
Starburst includes everything you need to install and run Presto on a single machine, a cluster of machines, or even your laptop. Starburst is FREE to use and based on the Apache-licensed Presto.
