Thanks to the recent price cuts by Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud Platform, customers are starting to see real alternatives in terms of storing and analyzing Big Data. Qubole is proud to be part of this progress. Starting today, Big Data companies can run Qubole Data Service (QDS) on the Google Cloud.
