PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 2, 2014) - Cloudera, the leader in enterprise analytic data management powered by Apache Hadoop™, today announced that through the Cloudera Connect program, more than 100 partner products have certified on Cloudera Enterprise 5, the company's next generation Hadoop powered platform that serves as an integral component of enterprise data hubs globally. Cloudera partners showed true commitment to the company's technology innovation by certifying on Cloudera Enterprise 5 before it was GA. Now at the center of the most comprehensive partner ecosystem of applications, tools, frameworks and platforms, Cloudera Enterprise 5 is maximizing the opportunity for companies to gain value from all their data without limits, while working alongside existing technology and business investments.

Cloudera plans to continue to drive additional certifications and value to its customers as the year goes on.
"We are impressed by the volume and depth of partners that have chosen to certify their products in advance of Cloudera Enterprise 5 becoming GA," said Tim Stevens, vice president, Business and Corporate Development, Cloudera. "The Cloudera platform was built to allow customers to store any amount and kind of data and to deploy that data against an analytic infrastructure or application when, how and where needed to achieve the most economical value to their business. We are investing deeply in extending our partner ecosystem and certifying partner products on Cloudera Enterprise 5, ensuring our customers have the broadest choice of big data tools and technologies for their existing and future enterprise data hubs."
