The hardest part of getting value from your data is going from question to insight - it doesn’t have to be this way.

What Makes MotherDuck Unique?

FAQs Lottie

The Old World

Bin-packed, high latency workloads

Analytics are too cumbersome

With all your users in one big, shared box, they’re constantly competing for resources and compute, making load times unbearable...why are we doing this?

Scaling is resource-intensive

With a traditional DWH, power users run into latency issues as processing scales. Deciding which users to bin-pack and which to isolate on their own instance is cumbersome and sloooooooow.

No visibility of user-level usage

It’s impossible to understand who is driving the lion’s share of usage and how to prevent your database and the applications built on top from grinding to a halt. The struggle is real - but there’s finally a better way.

The MotherDuck World

Data warehouse without the overhead

Simple, straightforward analytics

MotherDuck is the first analytics data warehouse that offers cloud scale and individualized, user-level tenancy. Managing user-level compute limits and cost attribution without cumbersome upfront configuration hasn’t been possible until now.

The first truly personal data warehouse

Each user automatically gets their own compute engine, or “duckling,” giving agency and freedom back to end users to move quickly. Best of all: No more waiting around for queries to process because someone else is using too much compute!

User-level cpu limits by design

Set user-level CPU limits to ensure a consistent, smooth experience for all your users. Visibility into user-level cost attribution is already built in so you can predict and proactively optimize costs and say goodbye to surprise bills when usage scales up.

Hybrid, Dual Query Execution

SUPPORT LOCAL ANALYTICS

Your MacBook is faster than a $20-60/hr data warehouse. Why is it acting like a dumb terminal for the mainframe-in-the-cloud? MotherDuck lets you repurpose unused compute on your machine for local analytics. Save the cloud for added scale when needed.

DOUBLE YOUR PROCESSING POWER

MotherDuck’s query planner routes execution plans where they can be completed quickly and efficiently. Queries can process on users’ local machines, in the cloud, or in a hybrid, dual fashion across both locations.

UNLOCK THE FREEDOM TO RUN ANYWHERE

DuckDB’s binary has the freedom to run anywhere, including in the web browser. With MotherDuck, the flexibility of DuckDB can finally be enjoyed by multiple users thanks to org-level sharing and collaboration.

EXTEND DUCKDB TO THE CLOUD

Develop locally and ship to production with the same, ultra-efficient database on the client and in the cloud. It’s simple, easy, efficient, and it just ducking works.
