Cloudera realizes EDC strategy with Cloudera Data Platform

Thomas Reilly, CEO of Cloudera, says the company should deliver the new Cloudera Data Platform in the next two quarters. The strategy for the company’s enterprise data cloud (EDC) must therefore be realised.

The Cloudera Data Platform is the result of the company’s merger with Hortonworks, which was completed in January this year. Reilly emphasized at the time that the company was going to offer customers a comprehensive set of solutions to provide the right data analytics for data, “wherever the company needs it to work, from the Edge to AI, with the industry’s first Enterprise Data Cloud”.

Reilly told ZDNet after announcing the fourth quarter of 2018 figures on the EDC strategy, reports. The EDC is multicloud and hybrid, has multiple analytics functions, offers governance and uses an open architecture that can use multiple data stores.


The EDC strategy is therefore realised via the Cloudera Data Platform. “We are well on the way to delivering the first instance of the enterprise data cloud that offers the best of the Hortonworks and Cloudera platforms. We call this new solution the Cloudera Data Platform or CDP,” says Reilly.

“With CDP, our existing enterprise customers should be able to easily expand their data center deployments to a native cloud service in the two most popular public clouds, Azure and AWS. The first release of CDP will also offer a full range of open source data management analytics features, including data warehousing and machine learning.”

“Ultimately, CDP provides a single control plan to manage all infrastructure, data and workloads on hybrid and multi-cloud environments.”

Quarterly figures

Earlier this week, Cloudera announced its quarterly results for the last three months of 2018. The company incurred a loss of 15 U.S. cents per share on sales of 144.5 million U.S. dollars. For the next quarter, the company expects a loss of between 25 and 36 cents on sales of $190 million.
