Lately, I’ve been doing a lot of work on making Cloudera’s packages easy to use, and recently, the HBase team has pitched in to help us deliver compatible HBase packages. We’re pretty excited about this, and we’re looking forward to your feedback. A big thanks to Andrew Purtell, a Senior Architect at TrendMicro and HBase Contributor,

One of the ways in which Cloudera supports the open source community is to host such a mirror.
