The Problem

Data warehouses are the critical core of most modern architectures. Yet, they're expensive, proprietary, and unfamilar to most engineers. Every organization, from start-up to enterprise, has complex data problems. By building around Postgres, the Hydra team enables developers to scale their company's analytics with familiar Postgres tooling and existing know-how. Avoid proprietary warehouses that your team can't easily support and warehouse costs a COO will sweat over by using Hydra.

Enter Hydra, a warehouse for devs
