Acryl Data Raises $21M in Series A

Acryl Data, a Mountain View, CA-based company operating the DataHub Project, an open source data catalog, raised $21M in Series A funding.

The round was led by 8VC, with participation from Ram Shriram, Founder, Sherpalo Ventures and Guillermo Rauch, Founder and CEO of Vercel.

The company intends to use the funds to develop a new platform for data discovery, observability and control built atop high-fidelity DataHub metadata graph.

Led by CEO Swaroop Jagadish, Acryl Cloud is a community-driven data management platform that delivers central controls across the decentralized data stack. With a mission to bring clarity to data, it offers a data catalog alongside solutions for data governance and observability. It is delivered as a managed service and extends the DataHub Project’s open source capabilities with features that reduce friction in the operational management of data. Today, companies use Acryl Cloud to establish a single source for documentation, enable search and discovery of assets with automated data lineage, and connect technical teams and non-technical teams across an organization via an automated governance engine.

As an open source control plane and data catalog, DataHub is currently in use by companies including Stripe, Pinterest, and Optum. Companies such as Notion, Zendesk, Riskified, and MYOB use Acryl Cloud as their data management solution of choice.
