What's New

  • Secured data share

    Unravel leverages the Snowflake secured data share (Snow Share) option for data transfer over shared connections outside the Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) or through private links. This involves employing a serverless/warehouse task to independently replicate metadata to the schema in the customer Snowflake account, allowing you to share metadata directly with the Unravel Snowflake account in the same region.

  • Scaling optimization

    A scaling optimization approach is introduced in this release, which aims to optimize the efficiency of pipeline processing for Snowflake query data, ultimately enhancing the performance of the Queries page on Unravel UI.

    By employing the scaling optimization method, Unravel effectively queried a minimum of 1.5 million records in 43 minutes and a maximum of 11.2 million records within 4 hours 34 minutes. A deviation of 15% can be anticipated.

    For a detailed breakdown, refer to the following table, which presents the examined number of records and their respective polling times in hours.

    Number of records (Million)

    Polling time in hours

    1.5 M


    3.4 M


    5.7 M


    8.2 M


    11.2 M


    With the growing volume of records, you can anticipate a proportional increase in processing time. As the dataset expands, there is an impact on the time required for efficient processing. Alternatively, scaling up the hardware is a viable and recommended strategy to mitigate latency challenges associated with larger record processing.
