SEP Docker container#

It is possible to run Starburst Enterprise platform (SEP) in a Docker container for initial exploration and testing. The SEP Docker image starburstdata/starburst-enterprise is available on DockerHub and the Starburst Harbor instance. It contains a full SEP distribution, including all connectors and other features such as the Trino CLI.

Out of the box, SEP container images provide a single node cluster with the following catalogs configured:

Using the Docker container in production#

While it is possible to deploy SEP as a full cluster from the Docker container by mounting separate sets of configuration files for the cluster, coordinator and workers, it is not recommended. Instead, Starburst offers a full Kubernetes deployment option, including Docker containers and Helm charts for Apache Ranger and Hive Metastore.
