My Native Admission Statement: I have patience and perseverance, but also flexibility. My aspirations are to make both my company and our customers successful. and to find more time to read books and spend more time outdoors. At Starburst, we incubated our enterprise support offering for Presto while at Teradata. When we first got involved in early 2015, the Presto community was relatively small. No traditional enterprise adoption existed due to the lack of both security integrations and ease-of-use. Plus, not everyone wants to do-it-yourself without any support since running any software at large scale and in production is a serious responsibility. Starburst Data built on its initial customer base and rapidly accelerated product development and adoption across a large number of companies in a variety of industries.
What's next for the Business in the near future?:
We are investing in a major way in the cloud offerings that we introduced after forming Starburst Data. While on-premises deployments are still frequent, we are seeing a lot of activity across major cloud providers, like AWS, Azure, and the Google Cloud Platform. Also, Kubernetes is gaining significant adoption in both private and public clouds.
