Here's how Tuplejump describes itself...
A few years ago people realised that the volume of data that businesses generate was becoming unwieldy. A new set of technologies to handle this huge amounts of data cropped up. We were one of the early adopters of these ‘big-data’ technologies. Having helped Fortune 500 companies adopt these technologies we quickly realised how complicated they were and how much simpler they could get.
Thus started our quest to simplify data management technologies and make them extremely simple to use. We are building technology that is simple to use, scalable and will allow people to ask difficult questions on huge datasets.
We are a team passionate about technology and pushing technology frontiers. We believe that technology enriches and improves our lives for good. We have data everywhere! Statistics about the income and literacy data or metrics on energy consumption data, cancer/AIDS research or weather information. If we can collect it, if our scientists get tools to make sense of it, if we can find the patterns and causality in it, we can solve most of our world’s problems.
Sources say that Apple was interested in Tuplejump's FiloDB, an opensource project that applied machine learning concepts and analytics to to huge amounts of data as it streamed in.
