Starburst Enterprise 448-e STS documentation#

Starburst Enterprise platform (SEP) documentation consists of version-specific reference documentation and user guides that are up-to-date with the latest release. A listing of the contents of the documentation is available later in this document, as well as in the left-hand navigation, or in the three-line menu in the top bar.

The SEP documentation defaults to the most current release. To view a different release, select another version from the Choose version drop-down menu, located in the upper right.

Who do we write for?#

We write for users, who fall into one or more of the following three personas:

  • Data consumers query data through existing catalogs.

  • Data engineers create catalogs that connect data sources to SEP.

  • Platform administrators run and maintain the SEP cluster.


The overview contains lists designed to help you understand the similarities and differences between open source Trino, and SEP across several categories, as well as presenting use cases and support availability.

The topics above contain both version-specific descriptions of SEP end-user features and UI elements for all users, as well as relevant configuration properties for platform administrators.

These topics in this section provide a full listing of all SQL-related functionality in SEP.

These topics assist data engineers in understanding query performance in SEP, and in creating tools for use with the platform.

The topics in this section contain information relevant to all three personas by connector. For all connectors, configuration properties must be implemented by a platform administrator or data engineer with similar access. If enabled, session properties apply to all users where available. Connector topics also include type mapping and performance information, such as pushdown and dynamic filtering, relevant to all users.

These topics describe SEP administration features, best practices, and guides that cover common platform administration workflows.

These topics offer platform-specific guidance for how to deploy and configure SEP in the major cloud ecosystems.

These topics describe how to install SEP in your environment.
