Enterprise-ready Hadoop, Now Available as an Appliance

By: Clarke Patterson, senior director of product marketing, Cloudera

Early this summer, Teradata and Cloudera jointly announced the Teradata Appliance for Hadoop with Cloudera, an engineered, ready-to-run appliance that comes with enterprise-ready Cloudera Enterprise, in addition to our existing software integrations.

Today, at Strata + Hadoop World at New York, we are excited to announce the ability for customers to now order the Teradata Appliance for Hadoop with Cloudera.

Over the last couple years, we have certainly seen the maturation of Hadoop and the shift from using Hadoop as a proof-of concept technology to an enterprise-ready platform. However, the time, skillsets, and resources needed is hard to come by, and not every organization has the ability to hire the best talents in the market to plan, deploy, and manage Hadoop clusters, let alone support and maintain the platform post-production.

The Teradata Appliance for Hadoop with Cloudera is built to satisfy the need to stand up a Hadoop cluster quickly and cost-effectively. Having an appliance allows organizations to simplify and accelerate the cluster deployment, enabling customers to focus their IT resources on fine-tuning the infrastructure to deliver business value, rather than investing valuable resources in the details of deployment, management, and support of the platform.

In addition to the benefits of an appliance form-factor, the Teradata Appliance for Hadoop with Cloudera also delivers all the benefits of enterprise-ready Hadoop with Cloudera Enterprise:

  • Enterprise security and governance for all mission-critical workloads – With Apache Sentry and Cloudera Navigator, Cloudera Enterprise provides multiple layers of security and governance that are built to maintain the business agility and flexibility that Hadoop provides, while providing the security necessary to meet stringent security regulations and requirements. Being compliance-ready at the core, Cloudera Enterprise is the only distribution that is fully PCI-certified.
  • Industry-Leading Management and SupportCloudera Manager features a best-in-class holistic interface that provides end-to-end system management and zero-downtime rolling upgrades. Combining the power of Cloudera Manager with Teradata Viewpoint and Teradata Vital Infrastructure, Teradata Appliance for Hadoop with Cloudera provides intuitive tools for centralized management with powerful capabilities, even as the system scales.
  • Built on open standards – Cloudera is the leading open source Hadoop contributor, having added more major, enterprise-ready features to the Hadoop ecosystem, not just to the core. Over the years, Cloudera has been working with large ecosystem of partner and development community members to promote open standards for data access and governance through Cloudera Accelerator Program and One Platform Initiatives. With the Apache-licensed open source model, Cloudera ensures that data and applications remain the customer’s, and an open platform to connect with all of their existing investments in technology and skills.

With all the hustle and bustle of Strata + Hadoop World this week, don’t forget to stop by the Cloudera booth and the Teradata booth to talk to us about the Teradata Appliance for Hadoop with Cloudera!
