Try Starburst Enterprise #

Starburst makes it easy to set up trial configurations of Starburst Enterprise platform (SEP).

For evaluation purposes, SEP can be installed without a license. To use more than the basic functionality you must request a trial license.

Features that require a license include:

  • Starburst Insights Worksheets SQL editor and query history
  • Advanced authentication methods and other security features
  • Starburst Cached Views
  • Enhanced and exclusive connectors

Deployment options #

Your preferred platform for running applications influence how you deploy SEP to a production environment. Starburst supports the following deployments:

We recommend deploying SEP using containers and Kubernetes.

Linux is the required operating system.

Container-based deployment on Kubernetes #

You can manage Starburst Enterprise and a number of other components, such as the Hive metastore service or Apache Ranger, with the available Kubernetes support.

You can use the Kubernetes support for trial, development, and production clusters.

For a very limited trial, you can use Docker on a server or your local workstation.

Bare metal and virtual machine deployment #

To use bare metal hardware or virtual machines, deploy and manage SEP clusters with Starburst Admin. Use your own data center or cloud provider to provide and manage these clusters.

You can use Starburst Admin for trial, development, and production clusters.

For a very limited trial, you can manage the server manually or use your local workstation. In this case, use the most recent SEP tarball or RPM package directly.
