Data activation and processing company Qubole has expanded its partnership with Google Cloud. Qubole, which has headquarters in Santa Clara, California, United States, was established in 2011. The company’s services include a self-service platform for ‘Big Data’ analytics and machine learning in the cloud. The platform is built on Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform (GCP) clouds, and it allows data scientists to “spin up hundreds of clusters on their public cloud of choice and begin creating ad hoc and/or batch queries in under five minutes”. The expanded partnership with Google Cloud Platform (GCP) is intended to help “improve the data analytics experience”.
With Qubole’s data platform powered by GCP, users can deploy enterprise-grade analytics with a “first-class user experience” that offers an intuitive interface and built-in tools that drive collaboration. The self-service data platform leverages Apache Spark and Hadoop to facilitate collaborative processing of Big Data workloads on GCP. The low cost and reliable service provides autonomous and policy-based management to offer “automatic upscaling, rebalancing, and aggressive downscaling of clusters” based on the workload it is dealing with, and each job’s priority. The solution also offers enterprise-grade security and ongoing support for Open Source engines. It also provides simple access to data sources like ‘Connectors for Google Cloud Storage’, ‘Google BigQuery’, ‘Oracle’, ‘MySQL’, amd ‘Postgres’.
“Data is the new oil of this economy, and every day more companies are turning to the cloud to process data and leverage its value in their decisions,” suggested Qubole’s Senior Vice President of Product, Mohit Bhatnagar. “With this expanded partnership, Qubole is providing a powerful analytics service for Apache Spark and Hadoop on Google Cloud. Qubole’s solution delivers a unified workbench, notebooks and easy-to-use tools for data scientists and data engineers, enterprise-grade security, and 24x7 specialized support.”
“We are very excited about Qubole partnering with us to process big data on Apache Spark and Hadoop,” added the Director of Product Management at Google Cloud, Sudhir Hasbe. “This partnership is all about providing our customers with the best options on GCP. Our mutual long history helping enterprises solve their big data challenges, coupled with our constant focus on supporting our customers, makes this partnership a fantastic formula.”
