In data-intensive organizations, data engineering often becomes a bottleneck. The variety of data sources keeps growing, as does the demand for pipelines – which often must be hand-coded – to utilize this data across a growing number of analytics systems. However, there is a shortage of data engineers that exceeds even the well-documented dearth of data science talent. This data engineering squeeze results in lengthy projects and delayed delivery of value.
Upsolver customers see a substantial productivity boost to their data engineering function and tremendous acceleration of their data pipeline projects. Upsolver’s use of SQL for transformations and automation for pipeline orchestration means they can go from inspiration to production in weeks, whereas hand-coded, manually-orchestrated data lake pipelines commonly take months or quarters.
Use familiar SQL to specify how you want to transform your data, with over 150 standard functions plus extensions for stateful operations on streaming data. A dual-mode synchronized IDE lets you smoothly switch between drag-and-drop fields and operations or writing SQL. And you can plug in your own custom Python when needed.
Traditional approaches to building data pipelines require stitching together a DAG of all the tasks required to execute the pipeline. Upsolver automates orchestration based on big data engineering best practices. You simply define your query visually or in SQL, and then we handle the rest, from the order of operations to the scheduling of the underlying file system optimization and maintenance operations in order to continually execute with performance.
Upsolver analyzes source data and infers the schema, including detecting changes such as new fields or changed data types. It visually displays the schema and provides profile statistics such as density and cardinality to ease modeling data and building transformations.
Upsolver automates the management and optimization of output tables. Data engineers don’t need to build the “ugly data plumbing” needed to get to production, such as:
Upsolver is cloud-native fully managed data infrastructure. It deploys to your VPC, so your data stays in your control while Upsolver manages service availability and quality. Upsolver instances scale automatically, up to 1000s of nodes, based on your workload.
