Cloudera and Cisco are announcing a joint solution today, the Cisco Validated Design (CVD) for Cloudera Enterprise reference architecture.
What’s our reasoning behind this new reference architecture?
While the competitive pressure on enterprises vastly increases, the amount of data being ingested and managed has exploded and is accelerating quickly. At the same time, the need for timely and more accurate analytics has also increased. As a result, the need for a cost-effective, flexible and scalable infrastructure to store and process data has never been greater. We’re partnering to deliver tested and certified Hadoop infrastructure solutions and ongoing support that help take the time and risk out of deploying Apache Hadoop. The solutions provide a comprehensive, enterprise-class platform for Hadoop applications powered by Cloudera Enterprise, tested by Cisco and certified by the Cloudera Certified Technology program to streamline deployment and reduce risk.
Cloudera Enterprise is a complete enterprise analytic data management platform comprised of Cloudera’s enterprise-grade 100% open source Hadoop distribution, CDH, and comprehensive management software, Cloudera Manager. The software versions used in this CVD are CDH 4.1.3 and Cloudera Manager 4.5. Together with Cisco, Cloudera’s software complements the Cisco UCS Common Platform Architecture for Big Data to accelerate deployment of Hadoop by storing and analyzing more data, ensuring optimal deployment of the infrastructure through UCS Manager and Cloudera Manager, accelerating time to value for our customers.
