Databricks, founded in 2013 by the developers of the popular Spark big data processing engine, has been one of the hottest IT startups in recent years and is another big data company that market watchers have pegged as a candidate for “the next big IPO.”

The company’s product portfolio includes the Databricks Unified Data Service and the Databricks Lakehouse Platform. The company also develops big data tools such as the Delta Engine query execution software, introduced in June, and SQL Analytics for running SQL queries against massive data lakes, which debuted in November.

Just this week Databricks said it raised a stunning $1 billion in a Series G round of funding that brought the company’s post-money valuation to $28 billion. That’s on top of the $897 million in financing the company raised in earlier rounds of financing – including a $400 million Series F round in 2019 – and some observers are looking for the company to go public this year in an IPO to rival last year’s Snowflake blockbuster.
