The two companies work together to deliver open-standards-based reference architectures that simplify management and accelerate deployment of Hadoop Cluster environments
Apache Hadoop software and services provider Cloudera and HP have partnered to enable clients deploy, manage and scale Hadoop systems to gain effective insight from their business data.
The agreement will see the two companies will deliver open-standards-based reference architectures that simplify management and accelerate deployment of Hadoop Cluster environments.
Clients can now purchase the Cloudera Enterprise platform and future Cloudera products either directly from HP or bundled in HP AppSystem for Apache Hadoop.
Cloudera Enterprise comprises Cloudera’s Distribution Including Apache Hadoop (CDH) as well as Cloudera Manager and Cloudera Production Support.
The reseller agreement enables HP and Cloudera to preload the combined applications at the factory, eliminating the complexities associated with deploying, implementing and managing a Hadoop cluster environment.
Cloudera Business and Corporate Development vice president Tim Stevens, "With HP reselling the Cloudera Enterprise platform, together we provide end users with a comprehensive big data analytics solution for data integration, analysis and visualization, built natively on open source Apache Hadoop."
The new HP reference architecture for Apache Hadoop for Cloudera and HP AppSystem for Apache Hadoop-Cloudera are based on HP Converged Infrastructure. They include the Cloudera Enterprise platform and HP Insight Cluster Manager Utility (CMU) software.
HP Insight CMU improves total cluster performance in real time with 3-D monitoring technology that quickly locates workload bottlenecks and delivers instant feedback, while Cloudera Enterprise provides monitoring, configuration and management functionality that enables organisations to determine the root cause of performance issues and implement corrective action as needed.
