StarRocks/starrocks

StarRocks is a next-gen sub-second MPP database for full analytics scenarios, including multi-dimensional analytics, real-time analytics and ad-hoc query.
3323 719 100 3456

Features

  • 🚀 Native vectorized SQL engine: StarRocks adopts vectorization technology to make full use of the parallel computing power of CPU, achieving sub-second query returns in multi-dimensional analyses, which is 5 to 10 times faster than previous systems.
  • 📊 Standard SQL: StarRocks supports ANSI SQL syntax (fully supported TPC-H and TPC-DS). It is also compatible with the MySQL protocol. Various clients and BI software can be used to access StarRocks.
  • 💡 Smart query optimization: StarRocks can optimize complex queries through CBO (Cost Based Optimizer). With a better execution plan, the data analysis efficiency will be greatly improved.
  • ⚡ Real-time update: The updated model of StarRocks can perform upsert/delete operations according to the primary key, and achieve efficient query while concurrent updates.
  • 🪟 Intelligent materialized view: The materialized view of StarRocks can be automatically updated during the data import and automatically selected when the query is executed.
  • ✨ Querying data in data lakes directly: StarRocks allows direct access to data from Apache Hive™, Apache Iceberg™, and Apache Hudi™ without importing.
  • 🎛️ Resource management: This feature allows StarRocks to limit resource consumption for queries and implement isolation and efficient use of resources among tenants in the same cluster.
  • 💠 Easy to maintain: Simple architecture makes StarRocks easy to deploy, maintain and scale out. StarRocks tunes its query plan agilely, balances the resources when the cluster is scaled in or out, and recovers the data replica under node failure automatically.

Architecture Overview

StarRocks’s streamlined architecture is mainly composed of two modules:Frontend (FE) and Backend (BE). The entire system eliminates single points of failure through seamless and horizontal scaling of FE and BE, as well as replication of metadata and data.

Acknowledgment

StarRocks is built upon Apache® Doris™ 0.13 in early 2020. We have recreated many important parts of the database including a full vectorized execution engine, a brand new CBO optimizer, a novel real-time update engine, and query federation for data lakes.

Today, there are only about 30% of the code in StarRocks is identical to Apache® Doris™.
