Cloudera: All content tagged as Cloudera in NoSQL databases and polyglot persistence
The short answer is there is only one Apache Hadoop distribution.
The long answer is that there are many distributions that include Apache Hadoop or are claiming compatibility with Apache Hadoop.
The oldest and probably most popular: Cloudera’s Distribution of Hadoop (CDH)
The 100% open source: Hortonworks Data Platform.
The prioprietary: MapR.
The blue one: IBM InfoSphere BigInsights.
There’s also the version Facebook’s running on their cluster which includes Facebook Corona: a different approach to job scheduling and resource management.
But this list is not complete as it doesn’t include appliances featuring Hadoop. In this category we have:
- Oracle’s Big Data appliance featuring Cloudera’s Distribution of Hadoop
- Netapp’s Hadooplers
- EMC Greenplum DCA
- Teradata Aster Discovery Platform featuring Hortonworks’s Hadoop Data Platform
- Data Direct Networks (DDN)
I hope I didn’t miss any important ones1. As a conclusion for this list, my question is: who is actually benefiting from all these distributions?
I left aside for now Hadoop-as-a-Service. ↩

Besides the well established Amazon Elastic MapReduce and Windows Azure HDInsight, there are two new Hadoop-in-the-cloud services:
- Skytap which offers Cloudera CDH4 Enterprise experimentation clusters up to 50 nodes
- Joyent Solution for Hadoop which is offered in partnership with Hortonworks. I hesitated for a bit to mention Joyent considering the page says “Sign up now to talk to a Joyent Solutions Architect” which is anything but a cloud service.

Under the terms of the joint development and licensing agreement, the two companies will deliver open standards-based reference architectures that simplify management and accelerate deployment of Hadoop Cluster environments. Clients can purchase the Cloudera Enterprise platform and future Cloudera products either directly from HP or bundled in HP AppSystem for Apache Hadoop.
The new HP reference architecture for Apache Hadoop for Cloudera and HP AppSystem for Apache Hadoop—Cloudera are based on HP Converged Infrastructure. They include the Cloudera Enterprise platform and HP Insight Cluster Manager Utility (CMU) software.
