Google’s Cloud Division Quietly Acquires U.K. Startup Dataform

Dataform,  a startup in the U.K. that was building what it dubbed an “operating system” for data warehouses, has been quietly acquired by Google’s Google  Cloud division.

Terms of the deal aren’t being disclosed, although I understand this is mostly an acqui-hire, albeit one where the founders — both ex-Googlers prior to founding Dataform — have done well out of. However, it isn’t just about talent; Google is said to have been very interested in the company’s product, too — in fact, “Dataform web” is now being offered for free going forward.

One source with knowledge of the deal described it as a very decent outcome for Dataform’s founders, Lewis Hemens and Guillaume-Henri Huon. I also understand that Dataform was well on its way to raising a Series A, so there were definitely other options.
