We live in a hybrid data world. Big data has evolved to cloud data and now to hybrid data. Hybrid data—the massive amounts of data created everywhere businesses operate—in clouds, on-prem, and at the edge—is estimated by analysts to be 90 ZB this year, doubling to 180 ZB in the next three years. But analysts also estimate less than 10% of data created is actually stored and managed.

Hybrid data presents a massive opportunity but can be complex for businesses to access, use, and create value from it. That’s where modern data architectures like data lakehouse, data fabric, and data mesh come in. These new architectures are designed to handle the complexity automatically, so IT teams don’t have to. Modern architecture is good, but not enough. Analysts recommend a data architecture that also leverages distributed data management components—which may run on multiple clouds and/or on-premises—but are treated as a cohesive whole with a high degree of automation. Simply, a hybrid data platform.

Only Cloudera has the power to span multi-cloud and on-premises with a hybrid data platform. We deliver cloudnative data analytics across the full data lifecycle—data distribution, data engineering, data warehousing, transactional data, streaming data, data science, and machine learning—that’s portable across infrastructures. Only Cloudera delivers a hybrid data platform for modern data architectures withdata anywhere. We believe that data can make what is impossible today, possible tomorrow. Let us help you with your data-driven digital transformation.
