Onehouse emerged from stealth with its cloud-native managed service based on Apache Hudi. Onehouse streamlines the adoption of the lakehouse architecture, by offering a fully-managed cloud-native service that quickly ingests, self-manages, and auto-optimizes data. Instead of creating yet another vertically integrated data and query stack, it provides one interoperable and truly open data layer that accelerates workloads across all popular data lake query engines like Apache Spark, Trino, Presto, and even cloud warehouses as external tables.
