Adam Fowler looks at the potential confusion for Cloudera’s customers when talking about NoSQL databases:
As for Cloudera customers I’m not too sure. It may confuse people asking
Cloudera about NoSQL. Below is a potential conversation that, as a sales
engineer for NoSQL vendor MarkLogic, I can see easily happening:
This announcement struck me as being too publicized — it’s normal for companies with similar interests to partner, but a fair amount of care should be put into clearing all possible confusions and I don’t think this happened.
Just to summarize: Cloudera provides support for HBase and Accumulo. And it has a deal with MongoDB and Oracle. I assume in the sale process, Cloudera will go with: “we work with whatever you already have in place”. As for recommending a NoSQL solution for their customers, it will probably go as in Adam Fowler’s post. To which we could probably add Oracle too.
