Cloudera Overview

We are in the age of Internet of Things (IoT).  The emergence of interconnected devices, affordable storage space, ubiquitous computing, automation (automated trading, smart meters), and user generated content has triggered a massive data explosion. Every object that is capable of being connected to the internet stands as a potential source of information.

Going by the statistics, there is a burgeoning amount of data that explodes every minute. Let’s have a look at what really happens in every 60 seconds.

  • Google receives over 4,000,000 search queries
  • Twitter users tweet 300,000 times
  • YouTube has more than 1.3 million views and uploads more than 70 hours of videos
  • Amazon has over $80,000 online sales
  • Facebook receives more than 277,000 logins

Back in 2012, Google had received around 2,000,000 queries and in 2014, the amount has just doubled. This shows the sudden boom of data generation and consumption. We see a pattern in the data growth. The data doubles in every two years. With such massive influx of information, it has become an arduous task for the organizations to extract actionable insights from data.

Every day organizations receive a large amount of data from numerous sources. But, most of these data are unstructured and they look gibberish. And, this is where the tricky part comes in. Storing, processing, analyzing and visualizing such unstructured data that would bring business value is a challenge for the enterprises.

Cloudera, the leader in Apache-Hadoop based software, services and training, enables the data driven enterprises to derive business value from all their structured and unstructured data. An open source platform based on Apache Hadoop, Cloudera simplifies the Hadoop distribution and brings all-in-one features, right from storing, processing, managing and analyzing data.

Cloudera was founded by leading Big Data experts from Yahoo, Facebook, Google, and Oracle. Doug Cutting who is the inventor of Hadoop is working with Cloudera as the Chief Architect. Cloudera Distribution for Hadoop (CDH) is the most comprehensive, tested, stable and widely deployed distribution of Hadoop in commercial and non-commercial environments.

With petabytes and terabytes of data streaming in, Hadoop stores, processes, and analyzes such data in the simplest ways. Hadoop has the capability to do distributed parallel processing of huge amount of data across inexpensive servers and it doesn’t have to rely on expensive hardware for storing or processing data.

That is why Cloudera truly stands out when it comes to deploying enterprise data and it is radically transforming the way the enterprises handle data.
