Why use Trino on Plural?

Plural helps you deploy and manage the lifecycle of open-source applications on Kubernetes. Our platform combines the scalability and observability benefits of managed SaaS with the data security, governance, and compliance benefits of self-hosting Trino.

If you need more than just Trino, look for other cloud-native and open-source tools in our marketplace of curated applications to leapfrog complex deployments and get started quickly.

Build requirements

  • Mac OS X or Linux
  • Java 17.0.4+, 64-bit
  • Docker

Building Trino

Trino is a standard Maven project. Simply run the following command from the project root directory:

./mvnw clean install -DskipTests

On the first build, Maven downloads all the dependencies from the internet and caches them in the local repository (~/.m2/repository), which can take a while, depending on your connection speed. Subsequent builds are faster.

Trino has a comprehensive set of tests that take a considerable amount of time to run, and are thus disabled by the above command. These tests are run by the CI system when you submit a pull request. We recommend only running tests locally for the areas of code that you change.

Running Trino in your IDE


After building Trino for the first time, you can load the project into your IDE and run the server. We recommend using IntelliJ IDEA. Because Trino is a standard Maven project, you easily can import it into your IDE. In IntelliJ, choose Open Project from the Quick Start box or choose Open from the File menu and select the root pom.xml file.

After opening the project in IntelliJ, double check that the Java SDK is properly configured for the project:

  • Open the File menu and select Project Structure
  • In the SDKs section, ensure that JDK 17 is selected (create one if none exist)
  • In the Project section, ensure the Project language level is set to 17

Running a testing server

The simplest way to run Trino for development is to run the TpchQueryRunner class. It will start a development version of the server that is configured with the TPCH connector. You can then use the CLI to execute queries against this server. Many other connectors have their own *QueryRunner class that you can use when working on a specific connector.

Running the full server

Trino comes with sample configuration that should work out-of-the-box for development. Use the following options to create a run configuration:

  • Main Class: io.trino.server.DevelopmentServer
  • VM Options: -ea -Dconfig=etc/ -Dlog.levels-file=etc/ -Djdk.attach.allowAttachSelf=true
  • Working directory: $MODULE_DIR$
  • Use classpath of module: trino-server-dev

The working directory should be the trino-server-dev subdirectory. In IntelliJ, using $MODULE_DIR$ accomplishes this automatically.

If VM options doesn't exist in the dialog, you need to select Modify options and enable Add VM options.

Running the CLI

Start the CLI to connect to the server and run SQL queries:


Run a query to see the nodes in the cluster:

SELECT * FROM system.runtime.nodes;

Run a query against the TPCH connector:

SELECT * FROM tpch.tiny.region;

What companies are saying about us

We no longer needed a dedicated DevOps team; instead, we actively participated in the industrialization and deployment of our applications through Plural. Additionally, it allowed us to quickly gain proficiency in Terraform and Helm.

Walid El Bouchikhi
Data Engineer at Beamy

I have neither the patience nor the talent for DevOps/SysAdmin work, and yet I've deployed four enterprise-caliber open-source apps on Kubernetes... since 9am today. Bonkers.

Sawyer Waugh
Head of Engineering at Justifi

This is awesome. You saved me hours of further DevOps work for our v1 release. Just to say, I really love Plural.

Ismael Goulani
CTO & Data Engineer at Modeo

Wow! First of all I want to say thank you for creating Plural! It solves a lot of problems coming from a non-DevOps background. You guys are amazing!

Joey Taleño
Head of Data at Poplar Homes

We have been using Plural for complex Kubernetes deployments of Kubeflow and are excited with the possibilities it provides in making our workflows simpler and more efficient.

Case StudyHow Fnatic Deploys Their Data Stack with Plural

Fnatic is a leading global esports performance brand headquartered in London, focused on leveling up gamers. At the core of Fnatic’s success is its best-in-class data team. The Fnatic data team relies on third-party applications to serve different business functions with every member of the organization utilizing data daily. While having access to an abundance of data is great, it opens up a degree of complexity when it comes to answering critical business questions and in-game analytics for gaming members.

To answer these questions, the data team began constructing a data stack to solve these use cases. Since the team at Fnatic are big fans of open-source they elected to build their stack with popular open-source technologies.
