Cloudera, Red Hat partner to deploy cloud-ready data platforms

Cloudera, a provider of enterprise analytic data management solutions powered by Apache Hadoop, announced partnership with Red Hat to deliver joint enterprise software solutions including data integration and application development tools, and data platforms.

The integration of technologies from both companies will help customers harness the fast changing big data life cycle with open, secure and agile solutions, company officials said. The companies will cooperate on documentation, marketing and support.

Cloudera and Red Hat will help enterprise customers deploy big data solutions that best suit their needs- on premise, in a hybrid or private cloud.


The open and agile technology stack offered by Cloudera and Red Hat enables enterprises to modernize their traditional data management architecture and deploy Hadoop as the core of their big data infrastructure.

The companies will work together to develop cloud-ready data platforms to accelerate the transition to the open hybrid cloud with Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform and Sahara integrated with Cloudera Director and Cloudera Enterprise, all managed by Red Hat CloudForms.

The platform will integrate Red Hat Enterprise Linux, OpenJDK support and Red Hat Storage Server with Cloudera Enterprise, Cloudera Manager and Cloudera Navigator.

Further the combination will result in agile data integration and application development tools with Red Hat JBoss Middleware and OpenShift by Red Hat integrated with Cloudera Enterprise that leverages the Cloudera Kite libraries, Cloudera Impala and Apache Hive connectors.

Tim Stevens, vice president, Business and Corporate Development, Cloudera, said, “Through rapid mainstream adoption, Hadoop has become the core of an enterprise data hub that requires a flexible deployment model, robust security, governance and agile development tools to be successful.”

“Our alliance with Red Hat allows for Hadoop workloads to be deployed and managed with the same confidence as other mission-critical workloads to deliver the next wave of big data-based innovation for the enterprise,” Stevens added.

Scott Musson, vice president, Global Strategic Alliances, Red Hat, added, “With today’s announcement, Red Hat and Cloudera intend to give customers an open and modular technology stack to quickly derive new insights from their data, optimize their existing investment in platform infrastructure and lower the overall cost of managing data platforms.”
