Big Data, Big Insights: Cloudera
Enterprises today collect and generate more data than ever before. Business users ask more sophisticated questions and need to explore data in more detail than legacy systems allow. They must combine a variety of data from many sources and extract real, actionable information and insight from it quickly. Hadoop makes this possible.
Scalar leverages deep expertise in architecting cost-effective, purpose-built systems for data management with the leading distribution of Apache Hadoop – Cloudera. Together with Cloudera, Scalar has the ability to help organizations manage, store, and gain more insight from the ever-increasing data that they create
What is Hadoop?
Hadoop is an open source Java implementation of Google's MapReduce algorithm along with an infrastructure to support distributing it over multiple machines. This includes its own filesystem HDFS (Hadoop Distributed File System), based on the Google File System, which is specifically tailored for dealing with large files.
Hadoop is useful for organizations managing massive amounts of structured, semi-structured, or unstructured data, who wish to intelligently and efficiently store, quickly process, and effectively analyze that data.
Hadoop has several uses within the enterprise, including:
- Data Storage: organizations can collect and store structured, unstructured and semi-structured data in a resilient, scalable data store that can be organized and sorted for indexing and analysis
- Batch Processing of Unstructured Data: organizations can batch-process (index, analyze, etc.) large quantities of unstructured and semi-structured data
- Data Archiving: organizations needing medium term archival of data from data warehousing or DBMS to increase the length that data is retained or meet data retention policies or compliance
- Integration with Data Warehouse: organizations can transfer data stored in Hadoop into separate DBMS for advanced analytics. Organizations may also transfer data from DBMS back onto Hadoop.
What is Cloudera?
Cloudera products are designed to help you get the most out of Apache Hadoop. Cloudera’s Distribution including Apache Hadoop is the most comprehensive Hadoop-based platform on the market. Cloudera Enterprise gives companies the functionality, scalability, and flexibility of the leading Hadoop distribution while lowering the technical and administrative bar required to deploy Hadoop in production.
Scalar and Cloudera can help design data-processing pipelines and integrate Hadoop into existing IT infrastructure, so organizations can share data between Hadoop and legacy applications and databases. Cloudera offers a suite of Hadoop training courses for developers, systems administrators, and executives.
