The open-source data warehouse

Hydra is an open source Snowflake alternative. We transform Postgres into a fast, scalable data warehouse. With Hydra, engineers can standardize both transactional and analytics workloads around the familiar Postgres syntax, tools, and ecosystem without app code changes. Hydra offers a fully managed cloud instance with columnar storage with high throughput writes. In addition, Hydra decouples the Postgres query layer from compute and storage to enable developers to run Postgres queries across any database. Hydra's mission is to end vendor lock-in and standardize on developers' favorite open-source database, Postgres.
