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.
