Cloudera Announces Next Phase of the Open Data Lakehouse

Cloudera, the data company for trusted enterprise AI, is introducing the next phase of its open data lakehouse on private cloud, making enhancements that revolutionize on-premises data experiences for trusted analytics and AI at scale.

By delivering Apache Iceberg for private clouds, Cloudera is empowering every organization to overcome these issues and quickly scale enterprise AI deployments to generate greater value, according to the company.

Apache Iceberg is an open-source, high-performance table format for vast analytic tables. When applied to private clouds, the solution enables companies to apply AI to the vast amounts of mission-critical data that exists both in the cloud and on premises, ultimately allowing them to create new use cases.

Cloudera is also rolling out a series of additional updates to its platform that will deliver unprecedented business value to its customer base, including:

  • Zero downtime upgrades (ZDU) and security enhancements such as Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.2 for increased business continuity and minimized interruptions.
  • New Apache Ozone capabilities, such as quotas, snapshots, and disaster recovery enhancements that enable greater scalability at lower cost to service the voracious data consumption needs of modern workloads.
  • Expanded support for integrations including Python 3.10, RHEL 9.1, RHEL 8.8 FIPS, SLES 15 SP4, Oracle 8.8, and JDK 17 for increased compatibility and flexibility.

"Cloudera's mission is to empower customers to transform data anywhere into actionable insights by enabling it with AI," said Dipto Chakravarty, chief product officer at Cloudera. "By giving them a trusted data foundation for analytics, this next phase of cloud-native solutions unlocks endless possibilities for building innovative AI applications."

Cloudera will be demonstrating its latest series of updates at the Gartner Data & Analytics Summit, taking place March 11-13, 2024 in Orlando, Florida. Additionally, Cloudera's Technical Evangelism Director, Jake Bengston, will be leading a session at the event on March 12 titled, "Game-Changing Gen AI: Advancing from Pilot to Production at Enterprise Scale."
