"More and more organizations are looking to create an Enterprise Data Hub with Apache Hadoop," said Tim Stevens, vice president, Business and Corporate Development, Cloudera. "This deep integration with Syncsort's powerful Hadoop offerings provides streamlined deployment, administration and monitoring with Cloudera Manager for mutual customers using our latest Hadoop platform release, Cloudera 5."

In keeping with its long-standing technology partnership with Cloudera, the Syncsort products are deeply integrated with Cloudera 5, creating a powerful combination that helps organizations reduce costs while gaining valuable business insights from Big Data.

"Hadoop is one of the most disruptive forces in the technology industry today, and the extraordinary levels of investment flowing into the platform are fundamentally changing the pace-of-improvement and economics of advanced data technology," said Lonne Jaffe, CEO, Syncsort. "This exciting announcement builds on the already expansive business and technology collaboration we have with Cloudera to bring the Enterprise Data Hub vision to our mutual customers." 

Some of the key use cases the combined Syncsort and Cloudera solution include are:

  • Making it easier to get vital business insights from varied data sources including unstructured data such as web logs, social media, and clickstream data
  • Dramatically lowering Enterprise Data Warehouse costs and freeing up capacity by offloading selected data and data processing workloads to Hadoop
  • Reducing mainframe costs by offloading targeted mainframe data and workloads to Hadoop
  • Exploiting critical legacy and mainframe data in Hadoop for Big Data analytics without time consuming and expensive hand-coding

Cloudera delivers the core elements of Hadoop – scalable storage and distributed computing – along with additional components such as a user interface, security, and integration with a broad range of software technologies, including those from Syncsort.
