Starburst Data is defining and driving the future of analytics in our increasingly distributed world. Built on open source Trino, their platform delivers a truly distributed analytical query engine that enables you to access and analyze any data no matter where it lives. 

 So, what is the role of a relational, transactional database in this context?

In this livestream, Ken Pickering, VP of Engineering at Starburst, will join us to discuss why a distributed SQL database is the right choice for a global SaaS application. Here are a few of the challenges that Starburst addresses with CockroachDB:

  • Transactional requirements and challenges in SaaS apps
  • The technical challenges of going Saas
  • Leveraging a cloud-neutral foundation (across AWS, Azure, GCP)
  • Customer data and regulatory compliance
  • Architecting for zero downtime across multiple cloud regions 

This is going to be a free-flowing, nerd-sniping conversation in which the audience is encouraged to participate. So bring all your distributed SQL questions for Jim and Ken to answer!
