Qubole revolutionizes how companies access insights from their data. Our cloud-native big data platform enables companies to exponentially activate petabytes of data faster for everyone and any use case. Qubole delivers the freedom of choice to our users: customers can use any engine, any tool, and any cloud. We help our customers process an exabyte of data every month, enabling them to focus on their data — not their data platform.
Today’s enterprises face a critical challenge: how to make all captured data accessible and actionable to all business users. Despite collecting and storing data at unprecedented rates in greater volume and variety, many businesses encounter limitations around scaling up data operations — both in infrastructure and staffing — to meet business demands and expectations. Qubole defines this dissonance between the expectations from data and the supply of resources as the activation gap.
To bridge the activation gap, companies require a rethinking of the role that data teams serve in providing users with the information they need. Qubole offers a cloud-native architecture with rich automation features on a fully optimized platform that allows for more scalable and flexible data processing. Our platform helps enterprises maximize efficiency and cost savings as well as positively impact service level agreements (SLAs). Qubole’s platform handles diverse workloads across the big data lifecycle — enabling businesses to disrupt, thrive, and innovate using all of their data.
Ashish Thusoo and Joydeep Sen Sarma co-founded Qubole in 2013 with a mission to close the data accessibility gap. In launching Qubole, the duo leveraged their experience as part of the original Facebook Data Service Team from 2007 to 2011. Ashish and Joydeep authored many prominent data industry tools during their time at Facebook, including the Apache Hive Project. Their goal was to enable massive speed and scale to the data platform while providing better self-service access to the data for business users. Ashish and Joydeep built these same product principles of speed, scale, and accessibility into the foundation of Qubole.
