About Starburst

For data-driven companies, Starburst offers a full-featured data lake analytics platform, built on open source Trino. Our platform includes the capabilities needed to discover, organize, and consume data without the need for time-consuming and costly migrations. We believe the lake should be the center of gravity, but support accessing data outside the lake when needed. With Starburst, teams can access more complete data, lower the cost of infrastructure, use the tools best suited to their specific needs, and avoid vendor lock-in. Trusted by companies like Comcast, Grubhub, and Priceline, Starburst helps companies make better decisions faster on all their data.

“We are delighted to welcome Link Red Glue as our very first Consulting Partner in Portugal. Link Red Glue’s domain and technical expertise will support the demand for Starburst in Portugal, ultimately helping more customers to make better decisions with fast access to all their data and accelerate their time to value.” by Toni Adams – Senior Vice President, Alliances
