Load All Your Data Into Snowflake for Free

Eliminate the cost of loading and syncing data from all your sources into Snowflake—and focus on accelerating value for your business.

Why Make Data Ingestion Free?

There is too much friction in the least valuable step of the value creation chain.

Focus on Value

We believe that you should only incur costs when you are transforming your data into valuable data products. Data ingestion is a minor step in this process.

Increase Productivity

Data ingestion is a bottleneck in creating and iterating on data products. We remove this barrier so your team can move faster and get more done.

We remove data ingestion costs and make loading data into Snowflake
fast, easy, and free so you can focus on meaningful transformations and faster delivery. 

Why Our Customers Love Ascend Data Ingest

Ascend automatically detects, validates, and formats data from any source into Snowflake with a large library of configuration-based connectors supporting all major CDC strategies.

Raise Data Engineering Productivity

Eliminate tool seams between data ingestion and ETL transformation that require time-consuming coordination, orchestration, and DevOps processes to keep running.


“The Ascend Platform is a phenomenal application for data engineering in companies like Be Power, which benefits from an end-to-end platform like Ascend instead of investing in custom open source solutions that take massive amounts of time and effort to build and operate. I’ve searched for something like Ascend for a long time.”
