The new offering leverages AI to enable Azure Databricks customers to significantly improve performance of Spark jobs while providing unprecedented visibility into runtime behavior, resource usage, and cloud costs.

“Spark, Azure, and Azure Databricks have become foundational technologies in the big data landscape, with more and more Fortune 1000 organizations using them to build their modern data pipelines,” said Kunal Agarwal, CEO, Unravel Data. “Unravel is uniquely positioned to empower Azure Databricks customers to maximize the performance, reliability and return on investment of their Spark workloads.”

“Unravel’s full-stack DataOps platform has already helped Azure customers get the most out of their cloud-based big data deployments. We’re excited to extend that relationship to Azure Databricks,” said Yatharth Gupta, principal group manager, Azure Data at Microsoft. “Unravel adds tremendous value by delivering an AI-powered solution for Azure Databricks customers that are looking to troubleshoot challenging operational issues and optimize cost and performance of their Azure Databricks workloads.”
