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, including on-premises and cloud platforms. Unravel currently supports all major cloud data platforms, including Databricks, Snowflake, Google Cloud BigQuery, Google Cloud Dataproc, Amazon EMR, and more.

What is FinOps?

FinOps is often referred to as cloud cost management or cloud optimization and is defined by the FinOps Foundation as “an evolving cloud financial management discipline and cultural practice that enables organizations to get maximum business value by helping engineering, finance, technology, and business teams to collaborate on data-driven spending decisions.” FinOps is a new approach for data teams to achieve cloud cost efficiency with granular visibility, AI-powered recommendations, and automated guardrails.
