Upstart JethroData Competes Against Analytics Database Suppliers
JethroData is developing a Hadoop-based analytical database the company said combines Hadoop's scalability with the query performance of a fully indexed, columnar analytic database. The Israeli company, founded in March 2012, is competing with Hewlett-Packard Vertica, IBM Netezza, EMC Greenplum, Teradata Aster and InfoBright.
JethroData raised $4.5 million in venture capital earlier this year in a financing round led by Pitango Venture Capital. Eli Singer is the CEO and co-founder.
