Pepperdata was founded in 2012 by Sean Suchter and Chad Carson. As the first production users of Hadoop, working alongside the team that invented Hadoop at Yahoo, they realized early on that Hadoop would become very important and set out to build products that would enable users to performance-manage Big Data production systems. Pepperdata has raised $20M from well-regarded venture capital companies and attracted top senior engineering talent from Yahoo, Google, Microsoft, and Netflix. Pepperdata is headquartered in Cupertino, California.


Our leadership is committed to helping customers manage and improve the performance of Big Data systems running Hadoop and Spark.
