Here’s the difference between Starburst and 5X. The comparison is based on pricing, deployment, business model, and other important factors.
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.
5X is an end to end data platform built on top of the best in class vendors of the modern data stack. 5x lets you work with the best vendors of the modern data stack without worrying about signing different enterprise contracts or stitching them together. Companies using 5x are able to deploy end to end data platforms in minutes not months.
