Simplify Data Access for Starburst’s Federated Query Engine and Data Mesh

Immuta + Starburst Integration

As market demand for data mesh has grown, the need for dynamic attribute-based access control (ABAC) on Starburst’s popular data mesh architectures has increased as well. Therefore, we’re proud to announce Immuta’s native integration with the Starburst (Trino) federated query engine for data mesh architectures. Organizations eager to leverage Immuta’s integration with Starburst to develop a federated access model for all their data sources can now do so from a single, centralized platform.

Starburst’s analytics engine is built for the data mesh architectural pattern, allowing organizations to leverage data from multiple data warehouses. This in turn enables domain-driven data ownership, reduces pipeline complexity, and makes data infrastructure flexible and agile (you can read more about data mesh principles on Starburst’s website).

Trino (formerly PrestoSQL) brings the value of Starburst to a broad array of companies in varying stages of cloud adoption that need faster access to all of their data. Immuta’s seamless, industry-leading integration with Starburst unifies dynamic data security and access capabilities, with features such as:

  • A federated query engine
  • Data mesh architecture support
  • Seamless integration

Let’s take a closer look at how each of these works.

Federated Query Engine

As a federated query engine, Starburst acts as a single access point across even the most complex data architectures. This means organizations that typically have a mixture of legacy on-premises (e.g. Teradata, Sybase, SAP Hana) and cloud-native data warehouses (e.g. Snowflake, BigQuery, Redshift) are able to write one SQL query that joins data across multiple data platforms. Without a federated query engine like Starburst, data teams with data in two different warehouses must move it from one warehouse to another, which delays speed to access and increases risk.

Starburst makes it possible to use data from multiple warehouses without ETL, which in many cases represents significant cost and time savings. Between Starburst Enterprise Platform and Trino, you’re able to choose from around 50 connectors, so connecting Immuta’s Attribute-Based Access Control for data access to your favorite data source is easier than ever.

Data Mesh Architecture Support

Starburst provides the flexibility of a multitude of data connectors that organizations can leverage to access their data mesh architectures. Immuta, the leader in automated data access control, centralizes data access policy orchestration and enforcement so that policies are dynamically and consistently applied at query time. Together, Starburst and Immuta make it easy to provide rapid, controlled access to data across data mesh architectures.

Seamless Integration

Immuta’s native integration with Starburst is a unique, innovative approach in the industry that requires no separate views to be created and acts as an invisible layer that dynamically enforces data access policies at runtime. This integration with Starburst enables policies to be dynamically enforced at query time, without having to be precomputed. Hence, Immuta’s integration with Starburst offers deeper integration with Trino’s System Access Control, thereby reducing users’ policy burden, offering superior enforcement, and providing advanced access controls across all layers of the data ecosystem.

Deploying Immuta’s Data Access Platform with Starburst

With Immuta’s SaaS and self-managed deployment methods, Starburst users can easily get up and running with automated data access control across their data mesh. Immuta’s Starburst integration is now available in private preview for organizations on the cutting edge of their data mesh or cloud migration journey, or for those looking to join data for various Starburst use cases.
