Cloudera signs cloud-native data control and analytics pact with AWS

Cloudera has been a trusted AWS Partner for several years

Cloudera, the Santa Clara, California-based enterprise data cloud solutions provider, has signed an agreement with Seattle, Washington-headquartered Amazon Web Services (AWS) for enterprise generative AI domain services.

The pact aims to strengthen Cloudera’s relationship with the leading cloud computing giant by accelerating and scaling cloud-native data management and analytics on AWS.

AWS will work with Cloudera to scale cloud-native data management and analytics on the AWS Partner Network.

In addition, both parties will collaborate on marketing and co-selling programmes for their respective and joint customers.

Cloudera will henceforth leverage AWS services to deliver innovation and lower customer costs with its open data lakehouse for trusted enterprise AI.

For clients’ benefit

Cloudera enables its customers to utilise credits to accelerate migrating workloads to the cloud on the purchase of a Cloudera Data Platform (CDP) public cloud listing available in AWS Marketplace.

David Wroe, Principal Software Engineer and Solutions Architect for Be The Match, a global leader in cell therapy based in Minnesota, US, said: “As a non-profit, this [Cloudera-AWS partnership] affords us tremendous operational flexibility that was not previously possible.”

To deliver an enhanced open data lake house, Cloudera chose AWS to run the most critical components of the CDP, including data in motion, data lake house, data warehouse, operational database, AI/ML, master data management and end-to-end security.

The new arrangement can help Cloudera customers migrate to CDP quickly and efficiently on the cloud without refactoring their applications while supporting hybrid deployments.

Also, Cloudera has engineered CDP to integrate directly with AWS services, including Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS), Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) and Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2).

Cost savings

Cloudera customers thus have access to a tightly integrated platform that reduces cost and takes advantage of the latest innovations from AWS.

Paul Codding, Executive Vice President of Product Management at Cloudera, said: “Deepening our collaboration with AWS gives customers even more reasons to choose to run the Cloudera Data Platform on AWS.

“With tighter hardware and AWS service integration, customers get the best possible experience with strong security and governance, along with new cost reduction options to support their most critical analytical workloads, said Codding.

He added: “Together, Cloudera and AWS give organisations the tools required to build and run data applications in the way that can best meet the unique and changing needs of their business.”

“Our move to CDP Public Cloud on AWS for Be The Match’s search and match platform has resulted in significant cost savings for the organisation and a reduced infrastructure maintenance expense measured in millions of dollars,” Codding stressed.

According to Chris Grusz, General Manager of Technology Partnerships and Marketplace at AWS: “Cloudera has strengthened their collaboration with AWS for shared customers to leverage their existing investments in CDP and accelerate their modernisation to the cloud.”

Cloudera has been a trusted AWS Partner in cloud-native data management and analytics for several years.
