Varada as a Connector

You can deploy Varada as a connector to leverage its performance improvements for your existing Trino clusters. For deployment instructions, see Deploying the Varada Connector.

The following diagram shows how Varada integrates into your existing Trino cluster environment. Varada deploys its own connectors in addition to your existing connectors, and leaves your existing connectors in place. Your Hive or Iceberg catalog remains untouched, and all queries running on tables under the Varada Catalog leverage Varada's acceleration. No query rewrites are required, as your workloads continue to query the existing cluster as before.


Varada can integrate into clusters running the open-source of Trino (formerly known as PrestoSQL), and the commercial offerings of Amazon EMR and GCP DataProc (coming soon!).


Varada offers a community edition of the Trino connector, which is available for Trino 362, Trino 364, Trino 367, Trino 370, Trino 374, Trino 375 and is free for clusters with up to four worker nodes. Click here to get the connector and join us on Slack.
