Qubole‘s interfaces, including its easy to use GUI that really simplifies big data and its support for SQL with easy ways of embedding custom libraries, made it easy to learn. Using their GUI, setting up and tearing down clusters was totally transparent — as an analyst I did not have to take on such an operations headache. We saved the company a few million dollars of upfront investment by going with Qubole. Also, the Qubole guys are a seasoned bunch who seem know what they are doing, and have credible answers and solutions to the team’s questions. They are a Skype-chat or a phone call away whenever my team needs help with issues or change requests. I don’t feel I am taking on a huge risk by going with Qubole. Over time, they have become a partner in my team’s success, one to whom I delegate my big data platform needs.
