Why Qubole?

Gigaom broke the story on Qubole late yesterday.

I haven’t blogged for a couple of years now. It seemed little fun to rage against stuff – or to put expression to ideas that didn’t seem to have a chance to materialize. Ideas need a successful business plan to make a positive difference.


Or like Zuck said: “we don’t build services to make money; we make money to build better services


So we started this journey – to build a company that would build great data products, serve it’s customers  famously – and then build even better products out of that fuel.


I am, unfortunately, also old enough to not feel like beating my head against a wall. But these are exciting times – the cloud is the PC of the 80s. Like crap today – but with obvious potential. Surfers ride waves. Software guys ride technology trends. Lucky to get a chance to ride this one.


So hopefully – the next couple of years will not be like the last two. There will be a lot to discuss while we build some cool stuff. Most of my personal technical work – direct or indirect – will show up at the Qubole Blog . We are also pimping ourselves at all the social media pitstops du jour (Linkedin, Facebook or Twitter) – follow along for the ride – it will be fun. I guarantee it.

One thought on “Why Qubole?

  1. Try looking at the larger picture. Trying to destroy coaching classes cause they improve your chances in jee is like trying to stop students getting into iit, iim as they improve their chances to excel in life- get good jobs etc. What Mr sibal should improve is the outreach of better education–not only engg. But arts, fashion, media, medical,agro….and so on. Jee is not the only way to excel in life. Not everyone who cracked her was meant to be an engineer. For a bigger lot nothing as prestigious and sureshot way to excel in life was available locally. Else not even geeks want to do 7-8years of tapasya away from, family and good food. What we need is good education for all followed by oppurtunities for all.
