Key benefits & features

Your business moves in real time. Your data should as well. Cloudera Operational DB enables stream processing and real-time analytics on continuously changing data, ensuring the latest data and analysis can be injected into decision making.

Cloudera DataFlow     Apache SparkTM

Drive new business insights on a single platform designed for web scale. HBase delivers a column-based NoSQL store for multi-structured data, enabling enterprises to bring together and process more data of all types and from more sources (including IoT). Phoenix abstracts the underlying data store and facilitates data access with a familiar SQL interface.

Experience your data. Your way.

Business-critical challenges can’t be solved with discrete analytics applications running in silos. Tackling complex, data-driven problems such as driving customer insights, connecting products and services, or reducing business risk requires multi-function applications working as one. Cloudera SDX is a powerful data fabric that makes multi-disciplinary analytics easier to develop, less expensive to deploy, and more secure. Only SDX delivers a shared data experience that works for your data, your analytics, and your people—your way.
