Cloudera and Amazon Web Services
Customers of Cloudera and Amazon Web Services (AWS) now have the ability to run the enterprise data hub in the AWS public cloud, leveraging the power of the Cloudera Enterprise platform and the flexibility of the AWS cloud together.
Why Cloudera on AWS
Flexible Deployment, Faster Time to Insight
Running Cloudera Enterprise on AWS provides customers the greatest flexibility in how they deploy Hadoop, and can now bypass prolonged infrastructure selection and procurement processes, to rapidly put Cloudera’s Platform for Big Data to work to start realizing tangible business value from their data immediately. Hadoop excels at large scale data management and the AWS cloud focuses on providing infrastructure services on demand. Combining these allows customers to be able to leverage the power of Hadoop much faster and on-demand.
Scalable Data Management
At many large organizations, it can take weeks or even months to add new nodes into a traditional data cluster. By deploying Cloudera Enterprise in AWS, enterprises can effectively shorten rest-to-growth cycles to scale their data hubs as their business grows.
On-demand Processing Power
While Hadoop focus on collocating compute to disk, there are many processes that benefit from increased compute power. Deploying Hadoop on Amazon allows a fast ramp-up / ramp-down based on the needs of specific workloads, a flexibility that does not come easy with on-premise deployment.
Improved Efficiency, Increased Cost Savings
Deploying in AWS eliminates the need for organizations to dedicate resources toward maintaining a traditional data center, enabling them to focus instead on core competencies. As annual data growth for the average enterprise continues to skyrocket, even relatively new data management systems may experience strain under the demands of modern high performance workloads. By moving their data management platform to the cloud, enterprises can now offset or avoid the need to make costly annual investments in their on-premises data infrastructure to support new enterprise data growth, applications and workloads.
