Jethro Data was founded by a team of industry veterans committed to making big data analytics work in real time. Our passion is solving big problems, in this case building the technology that lets non-technical users interactively explore data on Hadoop and get immediate answers, using standard SQL or common BI tools.
JethroData is an index-based SQL engine for Hadoop. It lets you run 1000 X faster interactive ad-hoc queries, live dashboards and reports. With Jethro, you enjoy the scalability of Hadoop with the performance of an analytical database, in one system. Jethro works by automatically indexing data as it is written into Hadoop. Queries use indexes to access only the data they need instead of performing a full-scan of the entire dataset, leading to an increase in speed and a dramatic reduction in use of computing resources.
We’ve been building Jethro for the past two years, and plan to release it in the coming months, working together with the Hadoop community.
In early 2013, we raised $ 4.5 M from Pitango Venture Capital. We have offices in Israel and New York.
