Cloudera Announces Support for Apache Accumulo - what, how, why

Cloudera, the leader in enterprise analytic data management powered byApache Hadoop™, today announced its formal support for, and integration with, Apache Accumulo, a highly distributed, massively parallel processing database that is capable of analyzing structured and unstructured data and delivers fine-grained user access control and authentication. Accumulo uniquely enables system administrators to assign data access at the cell- level, ensuring that only authorized users can view and manipulate individual data points. This increased control allows a database to be accessed by a maximum number of users, while remaining compliant with data privacy and security regulations.

What about HBase?

Mike Olson:

It offers a strong complement to HBase, which has been part of our CDH offering since 2010, and remains the dominant high-performance delivery engine for NoSQL workloads running on Hadoop. However, Accumulo was expressly built to augment sensitive data workloads with fine-grained user access and authentication controls that are of mission-critical importance for federal and highly regulated industries.

The way I read this is: if you don’t need security go with HBase. If you need advanced security features you go with Accumulo.

How?

While there aren’t any details about what formal support means, I assume Cloudera will start offering Accumulo as an alternative to HBase.

I might be wrong though about Accumulo being a replacement for HBase. I’d love to learn how and why the 2 would co-exist.

Why?

The obvious reason is that Cloudera wants to get into government and super-regulated markets contracts where security is a top requirement.

Another reason might be that Cloudera is continuing to expand its portfolio to catch as many customers as possible. Something à la Oracle or IBM. The alternative would be to stay focused. Like Teradata.
