Firebolt raises $37m new funding from Zeev Ventures, TLV Partners, Bessemer VP and Angular Ventures

– ISRAEL, Tel Aviv –  Firebolt, the world’s fastest cloud data warehouse, purpose-built for high-performance analytics, today unveiled a new class of cloud data warehouse as a service and announced $37 million of financing which included participation from Zeev Ventures, TLV Partners, Bessemer Venture Partners, and Angular Ventures.

Firebolt delivers the fastest analytics performance – up to 182 times faster than other data warehouses – for the most challenging data requirements at the multi-terabyte and petabyte-scale, enabling higher performance with fewer cloud resources. Firebolt, thanks to its groundbreaking technology, allows companies to analyze much larger volumes of data than previously possible. This dramatically improves the ROI of collecting data and enables a myriad of new data-driven use cases with real business impact.

The global cloud analytics market is expected to grow to $65B by 2025, with increasing demand driven by vast digitization and the largest software public offering in history. Yet, current cloud data warehouse deployments struggle with performance and high costs, limiting their ability to address the needs of operations and customer-facing analytics. This issue has long been a pain point for Eldad Farkash and Saar Bitner, the founders of Firebolt. Eldad, Firebolt’s Co-founder & CEO, was previously the Co-founder & CTO of Sisense, one of the leading business intelligence products on the market. Saar, Firebolt’s Co-founder & COO, served as the GM & CMO at Sisense. They realized that with terabytes of data, cloud data warehouses could not scale to deliver the performance and efficiency companies needed to power their BI tools and analytics.

Firebolt is the first cloud data warehouse that delivers a sub-second interactive analytics experience with terabytes to petabytes of data. It enables analysts, employees, and end customers to gain the insights they need without having to wait for the results or worry about costs.

“While companies can store massive amounts of data, most organizations are only able to analyze a fraction of that big data, and often find themselves looking at stale data that does not reflect the current state of their business,” said Co-Founder and CEO, Eldad Farkash. “For companies to flourish today, they need to move fast, and they should not be forced to make data compromises to achieve only a small part of the business value that their data holds. With Firebolt, organizations can finally gain the insights they need without breaking the bank.”

“Firebolt created a SaaS product that changes the analytics experience over big data sets,” commented Oren Zeev of Zeev Ventures. “The pace of innovation in the big data space has lagged the explosion in data growth, rendering most data warehousing solutions too slow, too expensive, or too complex to scale. Firebolt takes cloud data warehousing to the next level by offering the world’s most powerful analytical engine. This means companies can now analyze multi-terabyte/petabyte data sets easily at significantly lower costs and provide a truly interactive user experience to their employees, customers, or anyone who needs to access the data.”
