Starburst Enterprise in AWS Marketplace #
Starburst Enterprise platform (SEP) is available directly through Amazon AWS Marketplace to run on a variety of instance types. The AWS Marketplace offering allows you to easily set up a monthly contract, after which you can deploy SEP using the CloudFormation Template (CFT).
Once deployed, is fully customizable, including connecting to services such as:
All of these service integrations are available in addition to Starburst’s suite of enhanced and exclusive connectors.
Choose our deployment type #
In addition to our marketplace offerings, SEP is also available to deploy on Amazon’s Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS). We strongly recommend that you deploy using EKS unless there is a specific technical reason why you cannot.
If you intend to use CFT as a proof-of-concept before moving to an EKS deployment in production, please be aware that there is no direct path from a CFT deployment to an EKS deployment. Therefore, if you begin building a proof-of-concept using CloudFormation, you should expect to remain on CloudFormation for production.
