The project will continue to develop and flourish as part of the open source community.
The StarRocks Project, a high-performance analytical database, has been donated to the Linux Foundation by CelerData, a unified analytics platform specifically created for the modern, real-time enterprise. This contribution was made following the news in December that StarRocks would switch from an Elastic License to an Apache License.
Since its inception in 2020, the StarRocks project has been a stand-alone endeavour with publicly accessible source code. More than 500 businesses, including market leaders Lenovo and Airbnb, have successfully launched digital transformation programmes with the aid of StarRocks.
With the help of StarRocks, developers can integrate OLAP, data lake, and real-time analytics onto a single engine and data pipeline. StarRocks completely utilises CPU processing power and SIMD instructions to improve performance thanks to its columnar storage engine and fully vectorized operators.
With recent industry award recognition, The StarRocks Project has received praise for its product innovation in data analytics. These awards include being named the winner of the BIG Innovation Awards, a finalist in the Cloud Awards for Best Cloud Business Intelligence or Analytics Solution, and the recipient of Intellyx’s Digital Innovator Award.
“The Linux Foundation is delighted to welcome the StarRocks Project into its family of open source projects,” said Mike Woster, Linux Foundation Chief Revenue Officer. “By providing a neutral home for collaboration, the Linux Foundation is able to bring together talented individuals and organizations from around the world to collaborate on building innovative solutions and technologies for shared benefit.”
