We are extremely proud to launch the community edition of our Trino connector, delivering instant 10x-100x performance and concurrency uplift on your existing Trino clusters.
This new community edition of Varada’s connector for Trino was born in the community. It’s free 🤩 (for clusters of up to 4 worker nodes), and is a part of our ongoing commitment and contribution to the Trino community.
The connector offers instant performance and concurrency impact with Varada’s autonomous indexing technology. Everything else remains as-is:
To highlight the impact we run a 4-query benchmarking analysis against Trino.
The connector works out-of-the-box and the deployment process is easy and quick (up to 10 min).
After making sure you are using SSD-enabled machines (i3.4xlarge, r5d.4xlarge, r5dn.4xlarge), simply run an installation script on each worker and the coordinator.
Following the installation, which should take a few minutes, queries that use Hive or Iceberg can now use the Varada catalog and enjoy the impact of dynamic indexing and smart cache management. You can continue using your existing Hive catalog and compare its performance to the Varada catalog.
