Qubole is a tech startup founded by the authors of Apache Hive—former Facebook engineers responsible for creating and managing Facebook’s 25PB data service. Qubole has a cloud-based Hadoop service platform for analyzing big data and building big data applications. The design is such that it hides the typical complexity of big data management, doing the most of the heavy lifting behind a simple, intuitive user interface.
Qubole’s platform links users to their data in real time with Open Database Connectivity and SQL and HiveQL. With a software as a service platform, Qubole technology can be run in an Internet browser.
