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. The company is headquartered in Mountain View, California with offices in Bangalore, India.Qubole simplifies the provisioning, management and scaling of big data analytics workloads leveraging data stored on Amazon Web Services, Google Compute, or Microsoft Azure infrastructure. With Qubole connected to your choice of cloud provider, once IT sets policies, any number of data analysts can be set free to collaboratively �click to query� with the power of Hive, Spark, Presto and many others in a growing list of data processing engines. Our platform, Qubole Data Service (QDS), delivers these best-in-class Apache tools integrated into an enterprise-feature rich platform optimized to run in the cloud at petabyte+ scale.
