StarTree SaaS Cloud Concepts

What is StarTree Cloud?
StarTree Cloud provides managed hosting for Apache Pinot on all major cloud platforms, including AWS, GCP and Azure. Startree Cloud enables developers to provision Apache Pinot clusters of different sizes, ingest data from real-time and batch data sources, and run analytics workloads with ultra-low latency.

Meanwhile, StarTree manages the underlying infrastructure for you, allowing you to have timely insights from a diverse set of data and make informed business decisions.

StarTree Cloud consists of tools that give you a better developer experience, including StarTree Data Manager (for data ingestion) and StarTree ThirdEye (for Anomaly Detection).

What is an organization?
The StarTree portal consists of multiple tenants that represent unique organizations. An organization is the root entity of the StarTree portal tenancy model.

Users are members of organizations and may be allowed to create StarTree workspaces (SaaS or BYOC (Bring Your Own Cloud) under it). A user can exist in multiple organizations at any given time. Each organization has its own billing details and reports.

What is a workspace?
Users of an organization may create as many workspaces as permitted by the quotas allowed by the cloud subscription. For the SaaS trial users can create one SaaS workspace per environment.

What is Apache Pinot?
Apache Pinot is a real-time distributed OLAP datastore, purpose-built to provide ultra low-latency analytics at extremely high throughput.

It can ingest directly from streaming data sources – such as Apache Kafka and Amazon Kinesis – and make the events available for querying instantly. It can also ingest from batch data sources such as Hadoop HDFS, Amazon S3, Azure ADLS, and Google Cloud Storage.

What is StarTree Data Manager?
The Data Manager is a UI that makes it easy to get data into a StarTree Cloud cluster.

You can access the StarTree Data Manager by navigating to the StarTree Data Manager experience from the workspace.

To learn more about Data Manager, see the Data Manager documentation.

What is StarTree ThirdEye?
StarTree ThirdEye is an anomaly detection, monitoring and interactive root-cause analysis platform built for data insights producers and decision makers. It helps identify and predict anomalous behavior in real-time in rapidly changing massive time-series data, based on historical patterns that are impossible to track manually.

Using ThirdEye interactive root-cause analysis experience, one can fast-track problem-solving and improve decision-making with unleashed actionable insights from anomalous events.

StarTree ThirdEye is not supported in the SaaS trail. You can request a demo at
