SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 10, 2019 — Qubole, the data activation company, today announced its expanded partnership and product integration with Google Cloud Platform (GCP). With Qubole’s cloud-native data platform running on GCP, customers have the option to deploy a new enterprise analytics service with a first-class user experience through a unified workbench that includes notebooks, dashboards, a native interface for all commands, and built-in tools for easy, secure collaboration.

Specific features include:

  • Unified user experience for data science and data engineering — Native workbench that includes notebooks, dashboards, and a common interface for all commands and tasks, enabling data engineers and data scientists to work and collaborate using tools, languages, and data processing engines they are familiar with.
  • Day-one self-service access — Fast access to Qubole through the GCP Marketplace, with automatic account setup, Google Cloud authentication, and simplified user onboarding.
  • 24×7 support for open source engines — Highly optimized versions of open source engines and frameworks with advanced caching and performance optimizations, and dedicated support and engineering teams specialized by engine.
  • Low cost and high reliability — Automatic upscaling, rebalancing, and aggressive downscaling of clusters with a complete context of the workload, SLA, and priority of each job, including intelligent autonomous and policy-based management of regular compute instances or Preemptible VMs.
  • Enterprise-grade security — Fine-grained predefined or custom identity and access management roles to separate compute and data access. Qubole also offers role-based access controls for secure collaboration in notebooks and commands.
  • Easy access to many data sources — Connectors for Google Cloud Storage, Google BigQuery, Oracle, MySQL, Postgres, MongoDB, and more.
