We are pleased that our partners Hortonworks and Cloudera will merge into a joint company. The two Hadoop distributions have evolved into complementary solutions in recent years. While Cloudera has expanded its expertise in data warehousing and machine learning, Hortonworks has invested in building a comprehensive end-to-end data management platform.
Together, they now want to build a common enterprise cloud that will cover everything from data management to machine learning solutions from a single source. This will bring together what belongs together: the architecture and secure operation of hybrid big data infrastructures in own data centers or in the public cloud will become easier in the near future. We expect that the collaboration between the two companies will further accelerate the market development for products and services based on IoT, streaming and machine learning.
We look forward to further cooperation and are confident that our customers will benefit from the combined forces of the Big Data specialists.
