Cloudera was founded in 2008 by some of the brightest minds from some of the Silicon Valley’s leading companies, such as Google (Christophe Bisciglia), Yahoo (Amr Awadallah), Oracle (Mike Olson), and Facebook (Jeff Hammerbacher).
Doug Cutting, co-creator of Hadoop, joined the company in 2009 as Chief Architect and remains in that role today. Today, Cloudera has over 900 employees across the globe that are committed to excellence in big data management. We’ve won numerous awards and accolades from industry watchdogs, including the 2013 InfoWorld Bossie award for the best open source big data tools (Cloudera Impala) and the 2014 and 2015 Database Trends and Applications magazine Readers’ Choice Award for best analytical platform.
An intelligent big data strategy relies on access to true expertise at every stage of your journey. No one has more experience helping companies get the most out of their data with Hadoop.
