Twitter Acquires Ubalo, A Scalable Computing Start-Up

The site declared that the Ubalo team is joining Twitter, and this is exciting news for them. Ubalo describes its business as a way “to make large-scale computing easier and more accessible to a technical audience.” It refers to its chief technology as “pods,” which may contain code, data and any other files needed to support a developer’s application.

What Ubalo Do:

Ubalo provides the services, which are used for increasing the speed of coding efficiently at many computers at the same time. The literal meaning of Ubalo is counting, and it manages the details in a back end process when a user runs a pod as per the website of the company.

The company says that they do not show the details of computers, and messaging so integration and scaling should not be a problem for users and all they need is to just type the codes needed by them for analysis.

The previous projects of the company amongst many include bringing down the image processing time for an application that has uploaded the files to S3 web storage service, and get back and process various data from the U.S. Census Bureau.

There is no clarity over how Twitter will utilize the technology of Ubalo into its back-end systems. There was no comment from the company over the deal. The website of Ubalo posted that they are looking forward to work in collaboration with Twitter in the future, as well.
