Cube Dev, the core developer and commercial company behind the open source analytics API platform Cube.js, has launched the hosted cloud version of its universal accessibility service.

Cube.js sits between the data warehouse and the application, providing developers with the backend infrastructure to connect aggregated data for visualizations. It fits into the broader big data technology stack along with data acquisition and integration tools that help large enterprise developers like IBM, Walmart, PayPal, Intuit and F5 create business intelligence dashboards or add visual analytics to their applications.

While Cube.js dates back to 2016 and was released under an open source license three years later, the creators launched the commercial Cube Dev unit last year to monetize the project and recently raised $ 15.5 million to bring its hosted cloud product on the market.

Previously, developers had to provide their own computing resources and use Docker or npm to install Cube.js, which means the company would be responsible for monitoring its own server performance and providing more cluster servers as they scaled. With Cube Cloud, however, all developers need to connect all their SQL data sources, and the Cube platform takes care of the rest and builds an API backend to drag the data into an application.

“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,” says Cube Dev- founder and CEO Artyom Keydunov noted in a press release. “Cube Cloud’s hosted infrastructure provides companies with reduced engineering complexity, increased reliability and performance, and radically reduced time to build their computing applications.”

Cube Cloud currently supports AWS and Google Cloud, and Azure support will arrive later in 2021.
