At Unravel we have always thought of big data and cloud computing as cool, and it always excites us when the industry reaches new milestones or when companies demonstrate game changing innovation with their cloud projects. CRN shares the same sentiment, and just released its 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Companies of 2019 list. The list includes some of the most advanced cloud technology providers across such categories as infrastructure, platforms and development, security, storage and software, and we’re thrilled to share that we have been included in this list, too, in the software category.

In a very short space of time, Unravel has rapidly innovated and expanded our support for all the major data platforms, including Spark, Hadoop, Kafka, Impala, NoSQL and SQL across cloud and hybrid environments. Unravel is deployed today in IaaS and PaaS models, alongside Azure HD Insights, Amazon EMR, Redshift and Athena workloads and is also available today on the Azure marketplace and AWS marketplace to support modern data apps such as IoT, Machine Learning and Analytics pipelines.

The 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Companies are selected by the CRN editorial team for their creativity and innovation in product development, the quality of their services and partner programs, and their demonstrated ability to help customers benefit from the ease of use, flexibility, scalability and budgetary savings that the cloud offers.

Cloud services are a vital part of the business and IT ecosystem with many enterprises clamoring for solution providers who will help them manage the scale and complexity of their data pipelines in the cloud. Cloud services are accelerating time to value for many data projects and providing enterprises of all sizes and from all industries with the potential for much greater scalability, flexibility, optimization, cost efficiency and access to specialist skills for their critical data driven applications and the data pipelines that support them. However, there many operational issues that get in the way of a successful cloud project such as application performance, resource optimization, workload migration and rapid troubleshooting. Without a unified and full stack approach that can provide AI-driven insights, recommendation and Automation, the challenges only intensify as enterprises move more data workloads to the cloud.

Frequently we find that many application or operations teams are not well prepared for migrating data workloads to a cloud platform. It is all too common place to over simplify or overlook certain considerations, such as application dependencies, application or query level cost assurance, End-to-end data pipeline visibility and given that migration isn’t a one time event, there is a need for continuous observability of performance and costs and infrastructure behavior.

We’re pleased and humbled that CRN has given us the label of being a “cool” cloud company and recognizing us for our innovation, tenacity and customer centricity when it comes to solving these data operations challenges.
