Palo Alto, Calif. – May 5, 2011 – Cloudera, the leading provider of Apache Hadoop-based data management software and services, today announced the third annual Hadoop World conference to be held November 8 and 9 at the Sheraton Towers in New York City.

“Hadoop World has exceeded everyone’s expectations and for 2011 we decided to double the scope of the event to be able to accommodate the overwhelming interest,” said Mike Olson, CEO of Cloudera. “We want the conference to have the best possible content for the Apache Hadoop community members, practitioners and business sponsors. We’re designing Hadoop World 2011 to best serve this vast ecosystem with a comprehensive mix of real-world customer use examples and technology talks across all the components in the Apache Hadoop ecosystem.”

Hadoop World 2011 will include more than 50 sessions across business and technical tracks spanning infrastructure, applications and use cases, in addition to keynotes from industry luminaries including Doug Cutting, the creator of Apache Hadoop and chief architect at Cloudera. Additional keynote sessions will be announced in coming months. Hadoop World sessions are ideal for developers, administrators, and business users of all skill levels.
