Cloudera announced availability of Cloudera Enterprise 5.2. The new release represents the proven success and maturity of the enterprise data hub, which delivers best-of-breed technologies and capabilities, with the support and validation of a robust ecosystem. This proven platform allows enterprises to leverage a pervasive analytics strategy in order to drive competitive advantages through the use of data. Key features include security advancements, industry-defining cloud capabilities, Impala 2.0 as the analytic database for Hadoop, and deeper technology integration with Cloudera’s partner ecosystem – including platform enhancements developed in collaboration with Intel.
“Enterprises are clamoring for better ways to get real value from Big Data. Cloudera Enterprise 5.2 is the most advanced Hadoop-based platform on the market today,” said Mike Olson, founder and chief strategy officer at Cloudera. “Across all industries and around the world, companies recognize the value of an enterprise data hub to capture, store, process and analyze data, and to integrate with the critical systems — databases, data warehouses, applications and tools — on which they rely today. The latest release adds new SQL capabilities, stream processing, multi-vendor cloud support, big performance improvements and more. Cloudera’s is the only Hadoop-based offering that’s achieved PCI security certification for sensitive data. And the 5.2 release marks even more growth in our partner ecosystem, with storage, database, server, application and services partners embracing Cloudera and the latest version of our product.”
Cloudera is the only Hadoop platform with comprehensive security built into the core – including at rest and in motion protection of all data and metadata across the entire Hadoop cluster. This, combined with Cloudera and Intel’s deep involvement in Project Rhino, an open source effort to enhance security in Hadoop, including joint work on industry-standard Apache Sentry and HDFS encryption capabilities; the recent acquisition of Gazzang; and the launch of the Cloudera Center for Security Excellence makes Cloudera the singular leader in security and governance for Hadoop.
In addition to major security upgrades, Cloudera Enterprise 5.2 features deeper integrations and strengthened relationships with many partners across its 1,200-member ecosystem. This not only ensures a seamless, flexible experience for organizations integrating an enterprise data hub into their infrastructures – allowing them to leverage existing skillsets and investments – but also drives improvements across the Hadoop ecosystem as a whole.
