Cube Dev, the open-source company behind Cube.js, is releasing Cube Cloud, a hosted version of the company’s open source Cube.js analytics API.
With Cube Cloud, companies build data applications like metrics dashboards and analytics features that consume data from their cloud data warehouse—without building or hosting any of the complex technologies required to make this possible, according to the vendor.
Cube Cloud connects to a company’s SQL data sources and builds an API backend to serve this data to an application.
This makes it easy for developers to build applications with the visualization libraries and front-end code tools of their choice.
The service leverages all of the features of the open source Cube.js offering including SQL modeling, data schema, access control, a querying API, and caching and acceleration.
“To build an application that uses data from a data warehouse, a developer will typically design and maintain the logic and infrastructure they need to request data from multiple sources—a complex, and time-consuming process,” said Artyom Keydunov, chief executive and co-founder of Cube Dev. “Cube Cloud’s hosted infrastructure provides businesses with reduced engineering complexity, increased reliability and performance, and radically shortened time to build their data applications.”
With Cube Cloud, developers simply select the Google Cloud Platform or Amazon Web Services region where they want to deploy Cube Cloud and connect it to their data sources.
As more data is consumed or an application attracts more concurrent users, Cube Cloud can automatically scale to provide additional computing resources.
Features of Cube Cloud include:
- Automatic management and scaling of the Cube Cloud infrastructure
- Schema pre-compilations and cache warm-ups
- Collaborative schema editing integrated with Git version control
- Query history views with performance analysis
- Interactive management of Cube materializations
