StarRocks + Iceberg = The Modern Open Data Lake

StarRocks + Apache Iceberg

Technical Benefits

  • Our performance tests have shown that StarRocks can get to near local disk performance when using Apache Iceberg on S3 compatible storage. 

  • No lock in on the query layer.  You can change the query layer when it doesn't meet the technical or financial requirements anymore. 

  • Get all the capabilities of an OLAP database like the ability to do JOINs and materialized views on the data within Apache Iceberg (you can also do a JOIN across an Apache Iceberg, Apache Hudi and Apache Hive table).

  • Many database tools just work out of the box through the Mysql wire compatible protocol support within StarRocks.
