Cloudera in the News
The firms say that Cloudera and Splunk are 'an ideal combination' to develop applications which accelerate the insight organisations get from big data.
On Wednesday Night, Cloudera launched its first-ever developer kit aimed at simplifying common tasks and building applications in their CDH Apache Hadoop distribution.
Which is certainly good for Cloudera: any number of companies have released Hadoop distributions over the past couple months, crowding the marketplace, and making it all the more vital for individual firms to sign “alliances” and other contracts for their respective offerings.
Cloudera has announced the general availability of Impala, its open source, interactive SQL query engine for analyzing data stored in Hadoop clusters in real time.
It’s pretty clear at this point that most enterprise IT organizations would rather use SQL. MapReduce is not only fairly arcane technology to master, but the vast majority of existing data warehouse applications were designed for SQL. Recognizing that fact, Cloudera last year began working on Impala, an instance of Hadoop that comes with a processing engine that has been optimized for SQL.
Cloudera’s Impala, its open-source SQL query engine for data stored in HDFS (Hadoop Distributed File System) and HBase, has reached general availability.
