Quantum by Qubole

Start querying instantly. Accelerate time to value.

No infrastructure management & setup.

Quantum is an interactive serverless query engine within the Qubole data platform, that enables data analysts to query petabyte-scale object stores or data lakes using ISO-compliant SQL.

Quantum is easy to use. Data analysts simply point to their data and start querying using SQL. As a high-performance query engine, Quantum delivers results in seconds.

Quantum is not a cloud data warehouse, it does not require complex ETL jobs or data replication prior to analysis. So anyone with SQL skills can use Quantum to quickly analyze small or large datasets.

Quantum integrates with any metastore or data catalog, providing you the flexibility to create and maintain a unified metadata repository across all your cloud services.

With Quantum you only pay for the queries you run. There is no infrastructure to manage. The engine estimates and allocates resources in response to workloads, so it can scale up or scale out depending on the characteristics of a workload.
