Commonly asked questions

What type of data does Unravel collect?

We only collect metadata and performance data from the data application jobs themselves. We do not have access to the data stored in your data lake and other databases, and that data is not and cannot be shared with Unravel.

Does Unravel send data back to my data warehouse, data lake, lakehouse?

Unravel software can be deployed anywhere, on-premise platforms or cloud platforms, in single-cluster or multi-cluster deployments. Unravel currently supports all major cloud and on-prem platforms, including Databricks, Amazon EMR, BigQuery, Dataproc, Snowflake, Cloudera, and MapR.
