With this partnership, Starburst is now uniquely available on nearly every major platform and can be seamlessly procured through their marketplaces. The Alibaba Cloud partnership comes on the heels of Starburst's recent release of Stargate, a new product offering that is intended to serve as a single point of access to data across borders, with fast query performance, while meeting data privacy and sovereignty requirements. Through this partnership, companies based in China and China-based subsidiaries of multinational companies can now easily leverage these powerful, global analytics capabilities to build architectures that reflect today's global nature of business.

"Global companies find that their enterprise data is increasingly spread across multiple clouds and disparate geographic regions. Starburst's vision is to unlock the analyst within us all and allow access to all of a company's data, no matter where it resides. So we naturally want to be everywhere our customers want to be. Alibaba Cloud is the perfect partner to help us extend our analytics engine for this global data mesh to the greater China market and facilitate a deeper level of hybrid analytics that hasn't previously been possible in this region."

Justin Borgman, CEO of Starburst
