Qubole Wins Second Consecutive DataWeek Award

Mountain View, California (EastBayDaily) — Qubole™, a leading provider of the next generation Cloud Big Data platform, is extremely proud to be recognized by DataWeek for the second consecutive year.

Qubole’s innovative Presto-as-a-Service offering has won the DataWeek Award for Best Big Data-as-a-Service Product for 2014. The flagship Qubole Data Service platform brought home the trophy last year for Innovation in Hadoop Technologies, a title inherited by Concurrent this year for their work on Cascading. For more about how to leverage Cascading and Qubole together, watch their joint webinar available now On Demand.

“What makes many award recipients this year stand out is the number of IT/infrastructure tools that are now available to developers or executives ‘as-a-service’,” noted Geoff Domoracki, Founder of DataWeek.

Qubole CEO Ashish Thusoo agrees. “In a rapidly growing and highly competitive field of companies offering various Big Data-as-a-Service solutions, I’m very proud of our team of Qubolers,” said Thusoo. “Our engineers’ commitment to innovation has put us at the front of the pack and I’m delighted to accept this DataWeek Award on behalf of Qubole.”

The award ceremony will be held during DataWeek on September 15th in San Francisco. The conference is co-located with API World and will feature over 100 sessions and over 200 new technologies.
