Qubole Data Service (QDS) provides a highly integrated set of tools that help organizations to analyze data and build reliable data-driven applications in the Cloud. QDS takes care of orchestrating and managing Cloud resources, allowing you to focus on analyzing and using the data.

QDS services include:

Cloud Data Warehouse: QDS provides Apache Hive as a service in the Cloud. This allows you to define schemas over data sets stored in Cloud Storage systems such as Amazon S3 and Azure WASB.

Analyze: A user interface that allows you to run queries and jobs using data in a Cloud store such as Amazon S3 or Azure WASB.

Scheduler: A tool that allows you to run recurring commands in sophisticated workflows.

QDS functions are exposed both through a browser-based application and REST APIs.
