Superset

Superset is an open-source data exploration and visualization platform, that allows users to explore and visualize their data with ease.

Available providers

Why use Superset on Plural?

Visualizing and exploring data with Superset is fast and intuitive, but deploying and setting up the application itself is complex and requires specific (cloud) infrastructure, networking, and Kubernetes knowledge.

Plural helps you deploy and manage the lifecycle of open-source applications on Kubernetes. Our platform combines the scalability and observability benefits you get with managed SaaS with the data security, governance, and compliance benefits you get with self-hosting Superset.

If you need more than just Superset, take a look at Plural’s data infrastructure stack, a pre-integrated deployment of Airbyte, Dagster, and Superset, or look for other open-source data engineering tools in our marketplace of curated applications to leapfrog complex deployments and get started quickly.

What companies are saying about us

We no longer needed a dedicated DevOps team; instead, we actively participated in the industrialization and deployment of our applications through Plural. Additionally, it allowed us to quickly gain proficiency in Terraform and Helm.

Walid El Bouchikhi
Data Engineer at Beamy

I have neither the patience nor the talent for DevOps/SysAdmin work, and yet I've deployed four enterprise-caliber open-source apps on Kubernetes... since 9am today. Bonkers.

Sawyer Waugh
Head of Engineering at Justifi

This is awesome. You saved me hours of further DevOps work for our v1 release. Just to say, I really love Plural.

Ismael Goulani
CTO & Data Engineer at Modeo

Wow! First of all I want to say thank you for creating Plural! It solves a lot of problems coming from a non-DevOps background. You guys are amazing!

Joey Taleño
Head of Data at Poplar Homes

We have been using Plural for complex Kubernetes deployments of Kubeflow and are excited with the possibilities it provides in making our workflows simpler and more efficient.

Jürgen Stary
Engineering Manager @ Alexander Thamm

Plural has been awesome, it’s super fast and intuitive to get going and there is zero-to-no overhead of the app management.

CTO and Co-Founder at Commandbar

Case StudyHow DignifiHealth Built Their Monitoring Stack on Plural

DignifiHealth chose Plural to help with the deployment and maintenance of open-source applications in production. In healthcare, privacy and ownership of data are no longer a nice-to-have, but a must-have feature with any tool you select. One of the most prominent concerns engineers in healthcare face is having Personally Identifiable Information (PII) leaving their organization’s infrastructure.
