Innovating in open source

Some vendors consume the open source community’s activity; others help drive it. Cloudera leads in influencing Hadoop platform evolution by creating, contributing, and supporting new capabilities that meet customer requirements for security, scale, and usability.

Curation of open standards

Cloudera has a long and proven track record of identifying, curating, and supporting open standards (including Apache HBase, Apache Spark, and Apache Kafka) that provide the mainstream, long-term architecture upon which new customer use cases are built.

Cloudera's open source credentials

  • Cloudera is the first and original source of a supported, 100% open source Hadoop distribution (CDH)—which has been downloaded more than all others combined.
  • Cloudera has contributed more code and features to the Hadoop ecosystem, not just the core, and shipped more of them, than any competitor.
  • Cloudera employs the most contributors and committers across open standards in the ecosystem, not just the core.
  • Cloudera employees have founded more (20+) successful Hadoop ecosystem projects than any competitor, including Apache Hadoop itself.
  • For components that are supported by multiple vendors (i.e., standards), more than half of all Apache JIRAs that are assigned to platform vendor employees are closed/resolved by Cloudera employees.
  • Cloudera engineers currently occupy more than 100 Apache committer seats (and more than 80 project management committee seats) across all projects that we support.

The best support for customer success

Cloudera’s global support team of project committers across the Hadoop ecosystem represents the largest, most experienced engineering resource dedicated full-time to customer success.
