Here’s the difference between Castor and Starburst. The comparison is based on pricing, deployment, business model, and other important factors.
Castor is a cloud-based collaborative data discovery tool for companies. It provides a plug-and-play and collaboration tool that enable enterprises to document all the knowledge related to data within the company with lineage, data catalog, search, GDPR, & data management features. Monetizes through subscription-based pricing plans.
For data-driven companies, Starburst offers a full-featured data lake analytics platform, built on open source Trino. Our platform includes the capabilities needed to discover, organize, and consume data without the need for time-consuming and costly migrations. We believe the lake should be the center of gravity, but support accessing data outside the lake when needed. With Starburst, teams can access more complete data, lower the cost of infrastructure, use the tools best suited to their specific needs, and avoid vendor lock-in. Trusted by companies like Comcast, Grubhub, and Priceline, Starburst helps companies make better decisions faster on all their data.
