Ditch the Pipeline Status Quo

How much of your day is spent combing through overly complex code, deciphering debug logs, and trial-and-error parameter tuning, all just to keep your pipelines running? Pipelines are critical, but they require far too much code, brittle configurations, and a disproportionate amount of time spent on maintenance. What’s worse is it only gets more challenging the more pipelines you build.

At a time when your data teams, their needs, and your data itself are all rapidly expanding, you need a data platform that is as dynamic as you. It’s time to ditch traditional pipeline development and start embracing Dataflows.

Evolve Beyond Pipelines

Backed by the Dataflow Control Plane, Ascend Dataflows are smarter and more reliable than traditional pipelines. Build sophisticated flows with just a few lines of code, and productionize them in record time.

Define Your End-State

Build based on your desired end-state. Period. Ascend makes it easy to create and visualize pipelines using SQL and Python. Use them interchangeably to build modular Dataflows with full lineage and dependency management. All development is operationalized by Ascend’s Dataflow Control Plane, with no need to recode logic or manually schedule runs. 

The Powerhouse of Ascend

The Dataflow Control Plane takes your declarative configuration and makes it happen. Ascend combines declarative configurations (the “data blueprint”) with a continuous feedback loop to understand current state, determine new actions, and keep all pipelines running and optimized across the entire data lifecycle.

AUTO-SCALE TO YOUR NEEDS

The Ascend Dataflow Control Plane manages a multi-cloud, auto-scaled microservices architecture built on Kubernetes and Apache Spark for on-demand processing and auto-orchestration to handle near-limitless scale. As data or logic change, it scales with precision to optimize performance and costs.
