Hadoop In The Cloud: New ecosystem of Cloudera partners provides even more options for your Big Data architecture

By

Big_Data-310x224You have always been able to use Cloudera in the Cloud. We have written about that in the past and shown ways for any user to rapidly stand up Hadoop clusters in Amazon or Rackspace or other provider systems in smart ways and then spin them down when they are no longer needed.  We have all also watched as the open source community has enhanced the ability to manage clusters in the cloud with new Hadoop-related projects.  But the enterprise CTO usually longs for something else. CTOs, CIOs and CISOs like cloud solutions that are well supported, tested, reliable and groomed for optimal and economic performance. This requires professional deployment by teams with a reputation for getting it right . If you are an enterprise technologist who will you turn to for this service? I would recommend starting with a firm that is serious enough to be in the Cloudera Connect Cloud Program. For more details on this program see the Cloudera press release below:

 

 

Cloudera Expands Partner Ecosystem to Bring Hadoop to the Cloud

 

Cloudera Connect: Cloud Program Will Speed New Innovation Through Strategic Partnerships with Industry Leading Cloud Solution Providers

 

PALO ALTO, CA and NEW YORK, NY – October 28, 2013 – From the Strata + Hadoop World Conference in New York City:Cloudera, the leader in enterprise analytic data management powered byApache Hadoop™, today unveiled Cloudera Connect: Cloud, an expanded Cloudera Connect Partner Program to support deployment of Hadoop in public cloud environments. Leading cloud solution providers who have already joined the program, include: Verizon Enterprise Solutions, Savvis (a CenturyLink company), SoftLayer (an IBM company) and T-Systems.

 

Introducing Cloudera Connect: Cloud

As Hadoop adoption evolves, so too do the requirements organizations have for big data solutions. Enterprises continue to embrace the flexibility and accessibility of the cloud for mission-critical applications, and companies are now looking to combine the benefits of the cloud with the data processing and analytic power of the Apache Hadoop platform, which traditionally has been deployed on localized hardware. To begin integrating all the capabilities of Hadoop into the cloud, Cloudera has expanded its partner program to include a new cloud services and solution provider division, called Cloudera Connect: Cloud.

“The cloud will play a significant role in the future of the enterprise, and Cloudera and Hadoop are part of that future,” said Tim Stevens, vice president, Corporate and Business Development, Cloudera. “We remain committed to solving higher order big data problems for our customers that will enable them to ask bigger questions and derive more sophisticated insights from their data — wherever it lives — from a single, unified enterprise data management platform. Cloudera’s richly diverse partner ecosystem is helping to provide the innovation and variety that our customers require to solve all of their data challenges.”

The new program is designed to meet the growing needs of customer organizations looking to optimize Hadoop deployments in cloud environments, by offering the utmost flexibility in deployment, consumption and choice of vendor for their big data deployments. Bolstered by its integration with a strong ecosystem of leading cloud solution providers, Cloudera will now offer a wide array of partner solutions to support unified data management and analytics in cloud-based environments. Charter members of the Cloudera Connect: Cloud program include:

  • Verizon Enterprise Solutions
  • Savvis (a CenturyLink company)
  • SoftLayer (an IBM company)
  • T-Systems

 

“For Hadoop to transition into the mainstream, enterprises need to have the flexibility and freedom to utilize the underlying infrastructure that best suits their specific needs, rather than having their data management solution provider be the gatekeeper of an on-premises versus cloud decision,” said Amr Awadallah, chief technology officer at Cloudera. “To that end, Cloudera is investing in strategic partnerships with companies that can help to build out cloud-specific feature sets, and we are working with multiple cloud vendors to offer a variety of choices to our customers, enabling them to customize a Hadoop-on-cloud deployment that is ideal for their unique environment.”

In addition to the Cloudera Connect: Cloud program, Cloudera will provide support for customer deployments in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud in the near future, and also private cloud deployments through OpenStack and VMware. The company’s long-term vision is to embrace a hybrid model, where the Cloudera stack can operate transparently between on-premises, private cloud and public cloud deployments. By bringing together a diverse partner ecosystem, with a plan to roll out comprehensive support for Hadoop in the cloud, Cloudera is helping customers bring Hadoop to more enterprise users and applications. Cloudera Enterprise continues to be the industry standard for next-generation enterprise data management and analytics, wherever data and workloads live.
