Today, Cloudera is the market leader in Hadoop with tens of thousands of nodes under management, as well as the top contributor of code to the Hadoop ecosystem. Markets include financial services, government, telecommunications, media, web, advertising, retail, energy, bioinformatics, pharma/healthcare, university research, oil and gas, gaming and more.

Why Open Source Matters

Since its inception in 2008, Cloudera has been strongly committed to a community-driven, open source Hadoop distribution because of its practical benefits for customers.

In addition to offering the benefits of open source, Cloudera has led the way to work with customers to ensure that their performance, availability, security, and recoverability needs are met in the open source platform, beginning with its first involvement with Hadoop.

Cloudera’s deep involvement in the Hadoop community ensures customers benefit from a close alignment of the open source roadmap with their needs - and get expert, proactive support from people who know the platform best.
