Qubole customers currently process nearly an exabyte of data every month, making us the leading cloud-agnostic big-data-as-a-service provider.

Qubole customers focus on their data, not their data platform. Qubole investors include CRV, Lightspeed Venture Partners, Norwest Venture Partners and IVP.

History of Qubole

history of qubole

Ashish Thusoo and Joydeep Sen Sarma were part of building and leading the original Facebook Data Service Team from 2007-2011 during which they authored many prominent data industry tools including the Apache Hive Project. Their goal was not only to enable massive speed and scale to the data platform, but also to provide better self-service access to the data for business users. With the lessons learned from successes at Facebook, Qubole was launched in 2013 with these very same product principles of speed, scale and accessibility in analytics.
