Mountain View, CA (PRWEB) July 08, 2014
“We are excited to continue our strong presence in the data scene of New York,” said Geoff Lunsford, the Senior Director of Worldwide Sales at Qubole. In the last twelve months, Qubole has participated in O’Reilly Media’s Strata Conference, GigaOM’s Structure:Data, DBTA’s Data Summit, as well as the Sentiment Analysis Symposium, all located in the Big Apple.
“This is also our fourth Amazon event,” Lunsford added. “We had a stellar reception at the AWS Summits in Singapore and in San Francisco, in addition to the flagship Re:Invent conference in Las Vegas, where we will display again this fall.”
While Qubole is available on Google Compute Engine and Rackspace as well, Amazon Web Services remains the most popular among Cloud service providers. As a result, AWS Summit is the most important regional conference for the user group and a crucial event for all data practitioners in the Tri-State area. Not only that, but the Summit is 100% free for attendees!
Lunsford and his colleagues will be demonstrating the newest features of Qubole Data Service (QDS), including the sought-after Presto-as-a-Service interface, multi-cluster capabilities for more sophisticated users, a new reports API with a canonicalizing feature to identify and prioritize top Hive workloads, and a significantly updated dashboard and command center.
To schedule a private demonstration, please contact Walter Paley, Marketing Manager, by email at Walt (at) Qubole (dot) com.
