The Platform for Big Data

Cloudera’s revolutionary data management platform is designed specifically to address the opportunities and challenges of Big Data. Cloudera combines Apache Hadoop with a number of other open source projects to create a single, massively scalable system where you can unite storage with an array of powerful processing and analytic frameworks. By uniting flexible storage and processing under a single management framework and set of system resources, Cloudera delivers the versatility and agility required for modern data management – where you can ingest, store, process, explore and analyze data of any type or quantity without migrating it between multiple specialized systems.

  • Unified Data – run transformations, analysis and applications against a common data set
  • Unified Metadata – all jobs and queries leverage a single metadata model
  • Unified System – all data operations run on a single set of nodes
  • Unified Security – a single model for security, data access and compliance
  • Unified Management – centralized system and data management
