Qubole, a provider of Big Data in the cloud, is pleased to announce that Microsoft Azure customers can now leverage the Qubole Data Service (QDS) to programmatically provision Azure cloud services, removing the unknowns of what infrastructure resources and costs are required for Big Data.
QDS, the only auto-scaling Hadoop engine to run on Microsoft Azure, makes the most efficient use of infrastructure while providing an easy to use interface for managing jobs. Delivered as a service, QDS shortens the time to value of Big Data and requires no upfront investment: users pay only for what they use and the system self-manages the clusters to their job specifications.

Qubole will be available on Microsoft Azure through an Early Adopter Program and will provide organizations with greater flexibility, choice and control in their delivery of Big Data insights.

"The Qubole Data Service is a pure-cloud solution that runs at enterprise scale, processing 80+ petabytes of data every month across our client base. With cloud-based Hadoop clusters as large as 1,500 nodes, Qubole manages some of the largest Hadoop clusters ever brought up in the cloud," said Ashish Thusoo, CEO and co-founder of Qubole and author of Apache Hive.
