Cloudera Engineering (@ClouderaEng) shipped a mountain of new product
(production-grade software, not just technical previews): Cloudera Impala,
Cloudera Search, Cloudera Navigator, Cloudera Development Kit (now Kite
SDK), new Apache Accumulo packages for CDH, and several iterative releases
of CDH and Cloudera Manager. (And, the Cloudera Enterprise 5 Beta release
was made available to the world.). Furthermore, as always, a ton of bug
fixes and new features went upstream, with the features notably but not
exclusively HiveServer2 and Apache Sentry (incubating).
How many things can you read in this paragraph?
- a not that subtle stab at Hortonwork’s series of technical previews.
- more and more projects brought under the CDH umbrella. Does more ever become too much? (I cannot explain why, but my first thought was “this feels so Oracle-style”)
- Cloudera’s current big bet is Impala. SQL and low latency querying. A big win for the project, but not necessarily a direct financial win for Cloudera, was its addition as a supported service on Amazon Elastic MapReduce.
