Cloudera, Inc. (NYSE: CLDR), the platform provider for machine learning, advanced analytics and data management built for the cloud, has been named a winner for two accolades: the Stratus Awards for Cloud Computing in the Platform-as-a-Service for Enterprise category by the Business Intelligence Group, and the 2017 Readers´ Choice Awards in the Best Hadoop Solution category by Database Trends and Applications (DBTA), the company said.
This is Cloudera´s fourth year in a row either winning or placing in the DBTA Readers´ Choice Awards.
The Stratus Awards for Cloud Computing recognizes Cloudera Altus, a platform-as-a-service that makes it easy and cost-effective to process large-scale data sets in the public cloud, such as with Amazon Web Services (AWS). The end-user focused platform was designed to simplify big data workloads in the cloud. This managed service, introduced in May, simplifies the process of building and running elastic data pipelines, eliminates data silos and has backward compatibility and platform portability with built-in workload management.
Cloudera´s three-time win of the DBTA Readers´ Choice Award underscores the company´s continued contributions to the large Apache Hadoop ecosystem of open source projects. Cloudera was named the winner of this award in 2015 and 2014, and a finalist in 2016. This year, Cloudera was also recognized as a finalist in the Best Big Data Platform category.
The Business Intelligence Group was founded with the mission of recognizing true talent and superior performance in the business world. Unlike other industry and business award programs, business executives–those with experience and knowledge–judge the programs. The organization´s proprietary and unique scoring system selectively measures performance across multiple business domains and then rewards those companies whose achievements stand above those of their peers.
