Upsolver Launches a New Service Called SQLake
Upsolver, a San Francisco-based startup, has launched a new service they are calling SQLake to compete with Databricks’ Delta Live Tables in meeting enterprise demand for SQL-oriented data pipeline automation.
Upsolver was founded by two data engineers, Ori Rafael and Yoni Ein, in 2015. The company is centered in San Francisco and Tel Aviv. It’s investors include Scale Venture Partners, Vertex Ventures US, Wing Venture Capital and JVP.
The main goal of SQLake is to lower the barrier to entry for complex data work, for example, keeping ETL (extraction, transformation, transport, and load) pipelines healthy using SQL. SQLake treats all data as data in motion to automatically parse the dependence between each step in the data pipeline to optimize the flow of data.
SQLake is priced at $99 per TB of data ingested with no minimum commitment. It is available on AWS Marketplace and can be tried out for free for a 30-day trial period.
