CDH is the world’s most widely deployed distribution of Apache Hadoop in commercial and non-commercial environments. Today, more than half of the Fortune 50 run open-source Apache Hadoop based on Cloudera. With tens of thousands of nodes in production, Cloudera has established itself as the category leader that is setting the standard for Apache Hadoop in the enterprise. CDH4 is a 100 percent, open-source distribution that combines Apache Hadoop with other open-source applications within the Hadoop stack to deliver advanced, enterprise-grade features.

“Security is extremely important to a big data environment,” said Ashvin Kamaraju, vice president of product development at Vormetric. “We’re serious about securing what matters and certifications such as Cloudera’s enable us to assure our mutual customers that we are a trusted and valuable resource for those looking to work with an Apache Hadoop expert.”

The Cloudera Certified Technology program, which Vormetric has joined, makes it simpler for Apache Hadoop technology buyers to purchase the right cluster components and software applications to extract the most value from their data. Clusters that leverage CDH4 alongside Cloudera Certified Technologies such as Vormetric operate with reduced risk and lower total cost of ownership. Cloudera Certified Technologies have been tested and validated to use supported APIs and to comply with Cloudera development guidelines for integration with Apache Hadoop.

“Building an Apache Hadoop cluster from the ground up can be challenging, as there are numerous choices to be made at all levels of the stack, and making those choices can be very complicated,” said Tim Stevens, Cloudera’s vice president of corporate and business development. “We’re committed to helping enterprises achieve the most from their big data initiatives and designed our Cloudera Certified Technology program to make those choices easy and reliable. The completion of Vormetric Data Security’s certification on CDH4 further solidifies Vormetric as a leading company in today’s growing big data and open-source space.”
