We’re happy to announce that Redash is joining Databricks. We’ve been an open-source company grounded in helping our community of users make sense of their data. We found this same culture and values in Databricks, and we’re excited to be able to carry on our vision to democratize access to data — now in a larger home where we can bring this to even more people.

One of the first things you see in our documentation is advice to configure your data sources with read only users. We recommend it because we meant Redash to visualize data. It's not built around INSERT, UPDATE, or DELETE actions. However, because Redash supports 40+ data sources and an unlimited number of JSON based APIs, the application can't directly prevent users from running non-SELECT queries.

Recently we’ve started transitioning from using Celery to using RQ as our task running engine. For phase one, we only migrated the jobs that aren’t directly running queries. These jobs include things like sending emails, figuring out which queries need to be refreshed, recording user events and other maintenance jobs. After deploying this we noticed our RQ workers required significantly more CPU to perform the same amount of tasks as our Celery workers did.

Judging by our announcement posts you might think we disappeared. But fear not, we've actually been busy working on the product. So busy in fact that we didn't take a moment to stop and share our progress with you. But the last release of Redash includes so many exciting things that we couldn't keep quiet anymore. While we tested this release on our hosted platform over the summer, and had a public beta of the Open Source version for a month, last week we made the final release of Redash version 8.
