10 Hot Big Data Companies You Should Watch In 2022

Rick Whiting

Here’s a roundup of 10 companies developing big data technologies and big data solutions to keep an eye on in 2022—some well-known, some likely to break out this year and some just starting to appear on industry observers’ radar screens.

Firebolt

Top Executive: Eldad Farkash, Co-Founder, CEO

Firebolt, which officially launched in December 2020, has developed a cloud data warehouse system with which the startup is boldly competing head-to-head with industry giants like Amazon Web Services, Snowflake and Google.

The company emphasizes the high performance of its system as a competitive advantage. And while AWS and Snowflake market their data cloud platforms for a wide range of tasks, Firebolt is specifically targeting developers and data engineers who are building data-intensive applications and interactive analytical systems in the cloud—for both internal and external users—that tap into huge volumes of data.

In June 2021 Firebolt raised an impressive $127 million in Series B funding to fuel its development efforts.
