PopSQL vs. Redash

Want to avoid having to assign scarce engineering resources to build and maintain a self-hosted version of Redash? Learn why you should make the switch to PopSQL.

PopSQL is trusted by 2000+ of the world's top data teams

Redash doesn't connect to your computer

Since Redash is a web based application, it needs to store your credentials in order to connect to your database.

PopSQL reduces security risks by connecting directly from your computer to your database through its native application.

Redash doesn't have a data catalog

You need a data catalog to improve data literacy by helping your team understand your database schema. Redash lacks this critical feature.

PopSQL makes it easy to annotate data, find data, collaborate with team members, and much more to ensure your data catalog is up to date.

Redash lacks a dbt Core™ integration

dbt has quickly become one of the most popular data transformation tools available today. Anyone who uses it can build production-grade data pipelines with ease.

PopSQL is the first SQL editor with built-in dbt Core™ support. With this integration, you can simplify your dbt workflow by working in PopSQL instead of switching between your code editor, terminal, and SQL editor.

Redash can't filter query results

It's great when queries return results, but it's time-consuming to find exactly what you're looking for with Redash. With PopSQL, users can easily filter their queries to find exactly what they're looking for.
