Cloudera has added EMC to its list of partners in efforts to address the challenges businesses face in dealing with large amounts of data.
EMC is partnering with Cloudera to help
organizations manage and analyze big data.
The two companies plan to integrate the data warehousing and analytics
technology EMC acquired when it bought
Greenplum with Cloudera Distribution for Hadoop (CDH). CDH is used for
collecting, consolidating and analyzing data. The partnership will integrate
CDH with EMC's Greenplum massively parallel
processing database to "provide a robust architecture for collaborative
analysis of large amounts of structured and unstructured data," EMC announced.
According to Cloudera, the connector between the two products will be
supported by both Greenplum and Cloudera and will enable high-speed bidirectional
data transfers between systems.
In addition, data staged by CDH will be integrated with EMC
Greenplum Chorus platform.
"Customers can use Cloudera's Distribution for Hadoop to inexpensively
stage complex and structured data, while Greenplum Chorus utilizes its
cloud-based platform to extract data from a variety of sources and enables
collaborative analysis for many users," said Michael Olson, CEO
of Cloudera, in a statement.
Cloudera recently announced a similar partnership with Teradata to connect
CDH with the Teradata data warehouse.
"Teradata customers are using Apache Hadoop as a method of processing
primarily high volumes of unstructured data," said Scott Gnau, chief
development officer at Teradata, in a statement Sept. 15 announcing the deal.
"It wasn't long before my phone rang and those customers wanted to
integrate these new insights into their data warehouses. Teradata Labs has been
working on this, and our efforts led us to Cloudera."
Bringing EMC and Cloudera solutions
together creates a powerful tool for collaborative data analysis, Bill Cook,
senior vice president and general manager of EMC's
Data Computing Products Division, said in a statement.
"EMC and Cloudera represent a
powerful combination of what we can deliver to customers," he said. "By
bringing together our solutions, our customers have a powerful tool for
collaborative data analysis and can more quickly and effectively analyze data
from a variety of sources."
