How Ascend Delivers Big Data Cost Optimization

Pipeline Efficiency

Ascend’s DataAware™ intelligence and pipeline optimizer ensures your pipelines run at optimal efficiency, actively reducing your infrastructure needs. Ascend intelligently dedupes workloads, garbage collects unused data, and optimizes Spark job parameters automatically — more efficient pipelines means smaller Spark clusters, and lower infrastructure bills.

Spark Efficiency

Ascend dynamically launches new Spark clusters in seconds, auto-scaling both nodes and executors, sharing resource pools where safe to do so, and reuse resources whenever possible.

Infrastructure Efficiency

Ascend runs on nearly 100% Spot instances to keep your infrastructure costs down.

Fully Optimized Apache Spark-Based Data Pipelines


Create autonomous Apache Spark-based data pipelines with 95% less code. Define your data logic in Python, PySpark, SQL, and YAML interchangeably.


Add, remove, and edit data sets and logic in minutes. Ascend tracks full data lineage, backfilling and propagating changes automatically.


Ascend dynamically manages your Spark clusters based on workload and optimizes Spark parameters for every job based on data and code profiles.
