Introducing Exasol Espresso

Espresso plugs right into your data stack

Espresso sits seamlessly as a consumption layer between your data lake or warehouse and whichever BI frontend you use, working smoothly with Tableau, Power BI, MicroStrategy and more.


We get your pain

You need to manage huge volumes of data and deliver critical insights right now. But your data volumes are skyrocketing, the number of queries is soaring, and the queries are getting more complex, which turns scalability, adoption, and complexity into even bigger headaches.


The volume of data keeps growing, and it’s becoming harder for your databases to handle it all, so productivity and performance slow, and pain increases.


You have to deal with ever more frequent and complex queries…and you have to do it with a shrinking team and budget.


Analytics databases are only valuable when they’re used by the people that need them most. But people don’t use something if it’s frustratingly slow or if they don’t trust its accuracy.

Exasol Espresso FAQs

  • What is Espresso?
    Espresso is an intuitive, easy-to-deploy BI accelerator. It consists of our state-of-the-art analytical database combined with a tool called “Data Virtuality” that helps to load your data into Exasol, so users can easily replicate their BI data and instantly switch the connection from their legacy data management system to Espresso and blend it with additional sources.
    That means Espresso builds a persisted data cache of the relevant data, and with the optional AI-powered add-on “Veezoo”, users will have a new way of querying data by just asking questions or typing questions in natural, everyday language, just like interacting with ChatGPT.
  • Where does Espresso sit in my tech stack?
    Espresso sits between your existing data sources such as Core DWH/Datalake/Datalakehouse and BI Frontend as an acceleration layer. Data Virtuality takes care of variety and veracity of data without complex ELT processes while the fast Exasol cache provides the velocity.
  • How can I try Espresso out to see how it performs in my own tech stack and data? What do I need to install it?
    It’s simple - just sign up for our Espresso SaaS offering and you can start your self-trial experience within minutes. You can grow your usage dynamically to meet your needs using our SaaS “T-shirt sizes” and if you’d like to install Espresso on-premises or in your own cloud infrastructure, please register for a proof of concept and our team will guide you through each step.
  • What’s the ideal use case for Espresso?
    If your organization struggles with its BI reporting and keeps running into the so-called “spinning-wheel problem”, Espresso is right for you. If you are unable to deliver new use cases and meet business demands or you are stuck with standard reports instead of getting deeper insights by exploring the data ad-hoc, Espresso is the right choice.
    If you have too many users and dashboards, have too much load on your legacy data system, generate data volumes that are too huge to handle, or simply have poorly performing data stacks, Espresso is the solution.
  • How quickly can I start saving money and improving performance with Espresso?
    You can load your most important datasets into Espresso, point your BI report/dashboard to it and see the performance effects of the in-memory cache layer immediately. You can also save costs by:
    • Avoiding expensive upgrades of your legacy systems.
    • Offloading workloads from legacy systems if they’re based on a consumption-based model.
    • Driving better decisions, as more members of your team can ask more questions and better steer the business.
    • Giving your administrators the time to work on topics that generate business value rather than tuning the database (see Forrester TEI) because Exasol is self-tuning.
