Vertica Announces Partnership with Cloudera at Hadoop World

Vertica sponsors premiere conference for Apache Hadoop users; speaks on topic of integrating Vertica Analytic Database with MapReduce

NEW YORK, Oct. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Vertica today announced a strategic partnership with Cloudera, the commercial Hadoop(TM) company, and increased support for MapReduce at the Hadoop World Conference 2009 - the premiere conference supporting enterprise users of the open source Apache Hadoop product.

The Cloudera partnership enables Vertica to offer native support for MapReduce via connectivity to the standard Hadoop framework. The benefits of integrating with Hadoop are numerous. Hadoop affords customers significant flexibility in deploying batch processing next to their analytic database. For example, Hadoop has become a powerful tool for financial data algorithm development. Combined with large tick stores, Hadoop enables fast, large scale iterative development of these algorithms. This scale of analysis increases possibilities for simulation based validation. By combining Hadoop with a scalable analytic database, like Vertica, users can re-create stable simulations and store large reusable results for further analysis.

"By integrating Vertica with Hadoop, customers can combine the performance and scalability of the Vertica Analytic Database with the highly parallel, powerful and flexible data processing that Hadoop and MapReduce provide," said Amr Awadallah, CTO of Cloudera. "This means customers can solve big data problems by using the right tools for the right job."

The Vertica interface to Hadoop gives MapReduce developers the ability to perform highly scalable in-database analytics by making it easy to store and retrieve data from the equally scalable Vertica Analytic Database. This unique combination of a massively parallel processing (MPP) analytic database and MPP compute framework gives enterprises the flexibility to process large sets of structured and unstructured data and make them available to business users at Web speeds.

"The relationship with Cloudera to integrate Hadoop with the Vertica Analytic Database has resulted in tremendous advantages for our customers," said Omer Trajman, director for cloud and virtualization at Vertica. "We have worked closely together to bring real-world experiences into the product and push the performance bar so customers continuously benefit from our collaboration."

Philip Howard of Bloor Research recently commented that Vertica's introduction of support for MapReduce differs from the approach of other vendors in that it supports it as a parallel capability rather than as something only accessible through SQL.

The Vertica Analytic Database has a unique columnar, MPP architecture and pioneering data compression to reduce storage requirements by as much as 90 percent, dramatically cutting hardware overhead and energy consumption so companies can analyze larger amounts of data at a fraction of the cost. It can operate directly on that compressed data, delivering query results 50 to 200 times faster than other databases.

The Cloudera Distribution for Hadoop makes it easier for traditional enterprises to manage and configure Hadoop clusters. With the release of Cloudera Desktop today at Hadoop World, beginners, non-developers and even seasoned developers can now build Hadoop applications with an easy-to-use graphical user interface.

Omer Trajman will be speaking at Hadoop World on Friday, October 2, 2009, 4-4:30 p.m. at The Roosevelt Hotel in New York City. For more information click here.
