Cloudera was founded in 2008 by some of the brightest minds at Silicon Valley’s leading companies—including Google (Christophe Bisciglia), Yahoo (Amr Awadallah), Oracle (Mike Olson), and Facebook (Jeff Hammerbacher).
Doug Cutting, co-creator of Hadoop, joined the company in 2009 as Chief Architect and remains in that role today. Today, Cloudera has over 1,400 employees across the globe that are committed to excellence in big data management. We’ve won numerous awards and accolades from industry watchdogs—including the 2014 and 2015 Database Trends and Applications Magazine Readers’ Choice Award for best analytical platform.
Cloudera has enterprise customers in every vertical market, including financial services, public sector, telecommunications, retail, and healthcare.
Cloudera’s data science team comprises technical and thought leaders from across that field. They work closely with Cloudera's customers to help them overcome challenges, as well as define opportunities, related to their data -- and then bring those experiences back into the data science and Big Data communities to help move the technology and user best practices forward..
Performance is the key to unlocking the potential of unlimited data. With the most powerful open source access frameworks, like Apache Spark for developer-friendly data processing and Apache Impala (incubating) for high-performance SQL, you’ll get results faster with Cloudera Enterprise than with any other data platform. Cloudera also includes the only native Hadoop Search engine and provides active data optimization for fast success.
