While Hadoop is quickly becoming the standard platform for working with big data, the open-source technology is notoriously difficult to work with. Xplenty offers a cloud Hadoop-as-a-Service and tools that data managers use to get the benefits of Hadoop without the hassle and complexity. That, according to Xplenty, makes the potential benefits of big data available to a wider audience of businesses.

Xplenty officially launched its software platform in April of this year. Based in Tel Aviv, Israel, the company was co-founded in 2011 by CEO Yaniv Mor and CTO Saggi Neumann.
