About Upsolver:

We are a group of DBAs, infrastructure developers and industry veterans with an obsession to make data lakes easy to use for every database practitioner. We built the first version of Upsolver for our own use, enjoyed our own dog food and decided we had built something that could bring tremendous value to every company doing analytics in the cloud.

Eliminating the tradeoff between economics and efficiency

Databases were invented to abstract the complexity of coding over raw file systems so data teams could “speak” in schemas and SQL and therefore iterate faster. Data lake platforms like Hadoop and Spark, while affordable, have forced these teams to regress when it comes to ease of use.

At Upsolver, we eliminate the tradeoff between economics and efficiency. We simplify transforming raw data into queryable data through a visual SQL UI, and automate hundreds of data lake engineering tasks to optimize performance. All so that data teams can focus their valuable resources on building analytics that serve the business.
