OAKLAND, Calif. – May 18, 2023 – Fivetran, a global leader in automated data movement, today announced $125 million in financing from Vista Credit Partners, a subsidiary of Vista Equity Partners and strategic credit and financing partner focused on the enterprise software, data and technology markets. The investment will be used to support Fivetran’s continued innovation and enterprise growth, bolstering its leadership position in the automated data movement market.
“In today’s macroeconomic climate, many of the most successful companies are data companies. From making revenue-impacting decisions to driving operational efficiencies, enterprises rely on data to run their business. Data availability across an organization cannot be something in question. Access must be as simple and as reliable as electricity,” said George Fraser, CEO at Fivetran. “Fivetran’s automated data movement platform helps enterprises connect to all of their data – whether on prem or in the cloud – with 99.9% guaranteed uptime. The financing will allow us to accelerate R&D and expand our automated data movement platform as we continue to scale globally.”
This past year, Fivetran has demonstrated significant momentum and continued growth. Company milestones include:
- Achieved $200+ million in annual revenue run rate – a 50% year-over-year increase;
- Named Partner of the Year by Google Cloud, Snowflake and Databricks;
- Expanded its customer roster to now serve over 5,000 global brands, including Autodesk, Conagra Brands, JetBlue, Lionsgate, Morgan Stanley and Ziff Davis;
- Record usage totaling more than 180,000 connectors synced per month. Fivetran moves more than 2,500 TB of data monthly managing more than 1.3 million schema changes with a 99.9% guaranteed uptime for customers; and
- Recognized by the Financial Times as one of the fastest-growing companies in the Americas, named to the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 list, 2022 Forbes Cloud 100 and G2’s 2023 Best ETL Tools list.
Fivetran also continued to add new product functionalities in the last year. Key updates include the introduction of Fivetran’s Metadata API which simplifies data governance for enterprises by automating the tracking of data in-flight. In addition, the company introduced new enterprise-grade capabilities including: support for Amazon S3 with Apache Iceberg which makes data lakes more effective and accessible for all users across the organization; High-Volume Agent (HVA) Connectors, AWS Gov Cloud support and private deployment – setting the industry standard with options for all deployment types for secure, real-time and high-volume database replication; and Lite connectors, which allow Fivetran to connect to virtually any SaaS application.
