ChaosSearch Hits Significant Growth Milestones in 1H 2021 as it Delivers New Approach to Activate Data Lakes for Analytics
With 611% Y/Y revenue growth, data analytics start-up on track for record-breaking year
BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–ChaosSearch reported record growth for the first half of the year, as its Data Lake Platform continues to gain traction amongst enterprises challenged with explosive data growth and those struggling to gain insights from the massive volumes of data sitting in their data lake. The organization’s year-over-year revenue has increased by 611%.
This year ChaosSearch expanded its award-winning log analytics solution to add SQL support, now delivering the industry’s first multi-model, multi-cloud data lake platform for cost effective analytics and business intelligence at scale. The expanded capabilities will make it easier and more cost-effective for customers like Blackboard, Equifax and Klarna to quickly derive value from exploding data volumes residing in their own cloud environments.
Other notable accomplishments for ChaosSearch in the first half of 2021 include being recognized as a leader in the industry by several award wins:

According to Gartner, “A data lake, when designed properly, can provision data for the diverse exploration requirements of multiple user types and use cases.” It further adds, “Today’s data lake is on cloud, and it supports multiple analytics techniques (not just data science).”1
“Organizations continue to struggle when it comes to accessing and analyzing data within their cloud environments,” said Ed Walsh, CEO. “ChaosSearch is committed to solving this business problem by delivering data insights at scale — without requiring any data movement — while helping organizations realize the true promise of data lakes. Thanks to the passion and determination of our growing team, we are on track to surpass expectations and finish the year strong.”

With an eye toward enhancing the business’ brand recognition and catapulting its go-to market strategy, Courtney Pallotta, VP, Marketing and Chris Sweeney, VP, Sales, joined ChaosSearch in March. Other key hires have included executives within sales, marketing and engineering. To support the organization’s rapid employee growth, VP of People Operations MJ Langlais also recently joined the team. The company expects to double in size again by the end of the year.
From a product perspective, ChaosSearch plans to follow its log analytics and SQL capabilities with machine learning support for a complete, multi-model data lake platform.
