Cloudera moves Hadoop beyond MapReduce

Joab Jackson | June 6, 2012
With the latest update to its Apache Hadoop distribution, Cloudera has provided the possibility of using data processing algorithms beyond the customary MapReduce, the company announced Tuesday.

The company's management software for CDH4, called Cloudera Manager, has been updated as well. The new edition, version 4, can be used to manage multiple clusters. An administrator can set up different clusters for testing and production, or offer separate clusters of different users in an enterprise. The software includes new visualization tools that use heat maps to provide a visual clue of where trouble spots may reside. This version is the first to have an API (application programming interface), so all functionality can be accessed from other programs, such as IBM's Tivoli integrated service management software.

In addition to these product releases, Cloudera also announced that it has signed with 250 partners, who offer complementary products or services based on Cloudera's version of Hadoop.
