With the Cloudera Data Platform, PhonePe initiates migration of a portion of their data to the cloud, ensuring enhanced scalability, agility, and reliability
Bengaluru, India, August 23, 2023- Today, Cloudera, the data company for trusted enterprise AI, announced its collaboration with India’s leading fintech platform, PhonePe. The company has selected the Cloudera Data Platform (CDP) to achieve greater operational efficiencies and for higher scalability, agility, flexibility, and reliability. CDP will help PhonePe to shift some of its workloads to the cloud, with the rest of the workloads remaining on-premise.

Cloudera’s Shared Data Experience (SDX) will ensure that the CDP is secured by design and will further enable PhonePe to access the data irrespective of its location, without compromise. CDP’s flexibility will empower PhonePe to achieve its various business needs through flexible workload migration. It will also give the company an enhanced layer of support by helping PhonePe in a seamless transition to use of CDP and related subscription-based support services, allowing PhonePe to focus more on continued innovation of its data architecture.
