Latest news about Qubole

2014. Big Data as a Service company Qubole raises $13 million

Hadoop-as-a-service startup Qubole has raised a $13 million series B round of venture capital. Qubole is hosted on the Amazon Web Services cloud, but can also run on Google Compute Engine, and acts like one might expect a cloud-native Hadoop service to act. It has a graphical user interface, connectors to several common data sources (including cloud object stores), and it takes advantage of cloud capabilities such as autoscaling and spot pricing for compute. What’s interesting about Qubole is that although it originally boasted optimized versions of Hive and other MapReduce-based tools, the company also lets users analyze data using the Facebook-created Presto SQL-on-Hadoop engine, and is working on a service around the increasingly popular and very fast Apache Spark framework.
