Data is the lifeblood of the modern business in today’s data era. It is the fuel that powers smarter decision making while unlocking newfound productivity and progress. Over the last decade, we at Dell Technologies have been delivering deeper insights to our customers with flexible, scalable, enterprise data analytics solutions that bridge structured and unstructured data.
Big Data Analytics platforms like Apache Hadoop are key in deriving insights from this massively growing datasphere. We have been partnering with the leading analytics platform providers like Cloudera to bring jointly engineered, optimized and tested Big Data Analytics solutions to market while providing extensive consulting and professional services to those who need it to help our customers at every step of their digital transformation journey.
Together, Dell Technologies and Cloudera are committed to deliver data insights anywhere, from the edge to the core data center to the cloud. With Cloudera Data Platform (CDP) Private Cloud Base combined with scale-out NAS like Dell EMC PowerScale and enterprise object storage like Dell EMC ECS, you can soft-migrate and seamlessly transition from Hortonworks to CDP. Consolidating data in one place also simplifies containerization and/or virtualization of Hadoop, so you can provide Hadoop-as-a-Service with PowerScale as the storage foundation.
With the recent launch of the new PowerEdge servers, customers can get the compute power needed for all of their workloads and applications, including the highly compute-intensive Big Data Analytics solutions. Optimizing the latest technologies and featuring 3rd Generation AMD EPYC™ processors, PowerEdge R6515 accelerates data processing capabilities by up to 60% in Big Data Hadoop databases¹, speeding time to insights.
Customers are benefitting from the innovations coming out of Dell Technologies and Cloudera. It is helping us transform too. Our own IT organization is delivering data-driven business insights to employees and customers around the world by running analytics and AI workloads on a massive data lake powered by Cloudera’s Apache distribution and our infrastructure portfolio of PowerEdge, PowerSwitch, PowerScale and PowerFlex.
Cloudera recently recognized Dell Technologies’ leadership in Hadoop/Big Data analytics and our long-term relationship with the Global Partner of the Year award. This award was granted, among other things, based on year-over-year growth trajectory, development commitment and technology alignment, and, joint wins and success stories over the past year.
Going forward, we are working with Cloudera for customers to consume Hadoop solutions in any way they need. You can buy the individual solution components, such as servers and storage on demand, and/or you can buy integrated Hadoop solutions on demand.
