We are very proud to announce that Varada has been selected as the winner of the “DataOps Platform of the Year” award in the 2021 Data Breakthrough Awards program conducted by Data Breakthrough, an independent market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global data technology market today.
The Data Breakthrough Awards is the premier awards program founded to recognize the data technology innovators, leaders and visionaries from around the world in a range of categories, including Data Analytics, Big Data, Business Intelligence, Data Storage and many more. The second annual Data Breakthrough Award program attracted more than 1,450 nominations from across the globe this year.
Varada gives clients the tools to operationalize all available data, directly on the customer’s data lake, delivering blazingly fast responses to any query. Using machine learning, Varada leverages a combination of big data indexing and caching to accelerate queries and meet business requirements directly on the customer data lake, avoiding data duplication and modeling. This breakthrough is made possible by Varada’s groundbreaking indexing technology, drastically reducing query execution time, data scanned, and the required compute resources.
“Varada is helping companies reliant on big data analytics take control of their budgets and business requirements with zero time-to-market,” said James Johnson, Managing Director, Data Breakthrough. “Varada’s data-ops platform empowers different stakeholders to get what they need – any query, any time, any data, any performance requirements directly on their data lake, without compromising control. We’re honored to award them DataOps Platform of the Year honors at this year’s Data Breakthrough Awards for their innovative approach that’s helping companies better secure and utilize their data.”
Varada’s unique approach and innovative indexing technology delivers much needed relief to organizations facing myriad data challenges, helping them simplify data ops management and delivering more control over cost of query acceleration. By delivering a self-optimizing data stack and enabling all data consumers to easily and interactively query any data, we help data teams better define workload priorities, business requirements, and budget.
To demonstrate Varada’s dramatic query acceleration, we ran a set of four queries against Snowflake and Trino (PrestoSQL). The results were remarkable, with up to 60x performance uplift against Trino and Snowflake. When it comes to cost per query, Varada was between 20x-50x cheaper based on Varada’s indexing which extremely lean on compute resources and can help data teams avoid common spiraling costs.
