PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 04/12/11 -- Cloudera, the leading provider of Apache Hadoop-based data management software and services, today announced the general availability of Cloudera's Distribution including Apache Hadoop v3 (CDH3), the latest major release of the company's open source Hadoop platform. With CDH3, Cloudera makes the full power of Apache Hadoop available to the widest range of today's flexible and varied enterprise IT architectures with improved performance, greater stability and durability, extended authentication support, and integration for business intelligence tools and RDBMS systems.
The world's first commercially supported Hadoop platform, Cloudera's Distribution including Apache Hadoop is a 100 percent open source enterprise data platform relied on by more companies and independent software vendors than any other version of Hadoop. CDH3 integrates all components and functions to interoperate through standard APIs, manages required component versions and dependencies and is maintained by Cloudera with regular patches for enterprise-class reliability.
"Twitter uses Cloudera's Distribution including Apache Hadoop for a very broad set of applications," said Kevin Weil, Head of Ad Products and former Analytics Lead at Twitter. "We have Hadoop jobs doing everything from user and product analysis, to social graph analysis, to generating indices for people search, to machine learning, and natural language processing. Nearly every team at Twitter uses Hadoop in some way."
Since first releasing CDH more than two years ago, Cloudera has become a leading contributor to the Apache Hadoop project and related projects and has trained thousands of new Hadoop users on Cloudera's Distribution including Apache Hadoop. Cloudera leads or is among the top three code contributors on the most important Apache Hadoop and Hadoop-related projects in the world, including Hadoop, HDFS, MapReduce, HBase, Zookeeper, Oozie, Hive, Sqoop, Flume, and Hue, among others.
"We put CDH3 through an exhaustive beta cycle with thousands of enterprises, including some of the most demanding production environments in the world," said Mike Olson, CEO of Cloudera. "The result is the most stable and reliable distribution of Apache Hadoop available today. Make no mistake, this is a pure open source software stack, 100 percent Apache licensed, but with unmatched levels of testing, integration and production experience that give customers confidence in our stack for production deployments.
