Preset is a cloud-hosted data exploration and visualization platform built on top of the popular open-source project, Apache Superset. This fully managed service makes it easy to run Superset at scale with enterprise-ready security, reliability, and governance.

Boasting exceptional speed and scalability, Firebolt enables users to adeptly manage substantial data volumes with minimal query latency. The integration with Preset establishes a strong partnership for data professionals, presenting them with a streamlined and efficient workflow. This collaboration ensures prompt loading of Preset dashboards and visualizations, even when confronted with extensive datasets, thereby facilitating the extraction of maximum value from their data.


Preset is a managed service so most of the deployment requirements are handled by them.
