Here is to 2013!

Here is to 2013!

As 2012 draws to a close, I look back at the past twelve months and feel both amazed and humbled.

Amazed because our team has accomplished so much: one year ago, we had a handful of customers, and it was just three of us huddling together in our small office in Los Altos (In fact, I had to ask my friend for a portable heater because our office got way too cold).

Today, we have a couple of dozens of customers and twelve teammates who believe in our mission to democratize big data analytics by leveraging the power of open source software (…and yes, our office is a tad bigger and has much better AC now). Last I checked, more than two billion data records flow into our system everyday!

Humbled because I learned first-hand how little I could accomplish on my own.

  • Without our stellar engineers, we couldn’t have built such a powerful platform in such a short period of time.
  • Without our hard-working bizdev and sales team, we couldn’t have closed so many partnerships and accounts.
  • Without our investors and their wise guidance, we wouldn’t have gotten anywhere at all.
  • Most important, without our customers who trust us and continue to give us invaluable feedback, we wouldn’t exist at all.

So, I’d like to take this opportunity to say what I’ve been meaning to say all year: thank you for your support.

Happy Holidays everyone!
