Cloudera Claims First Hadoop Lifecycle Management

Cloudera Enterprise 3.5 is an update of the company’s subscription-based configuration, monitoring and management tools

This being Hadoop week, Cloudera, the Apache Hadoop commercializer, materialized new software to manage the refractory widgetry over a deployment's lifecycle. It's supposed to give users the confidence to run Hadoop in production.

Cloudera Enterprise 3.5 is an update of the company's subscription-based configuration, monitoring and management tools that includes new tools as well as one-click security for Hadoop clusters.

It promises an activity monitor that lets users see what's happening in real-time at both a high and low level and identify bottlenecks. It's got automated security for enforcing rules and restrictions across the system with a click too.

The company also launched Cloudera SCM Express, which is supposed to make it easier and quicker to install and configure Apache Hadoop and with less training. It's based on the new Service and Configuration Manager (SCM) in Enterprise 3.5 and is supposed to automate changes, cut deployment time and provide cluster-wide real-time views of nodes and services running in a single centralized location for easier configuration across clusters.

Unlike Enterprise 3.5, SCM Express is free and will let users develop and centrally operate a complete Apache Hadoop cluster of up to 50 nodes. It's available in Cloudera's Distribution including Apache Hadoop (CDH).

In a statement Cloudera CEO Mike Olson said, "There's a lot of talk in the industry about making Apache Hadoop deployments easier, but Cloudera's approach encompasses the entire lifespan of systems, not just the initial setup. Over time workloads shift, teams change and the types of questions you want to ask change and you should be able to manage your systems up and down depending on how you want to use your resources. Cloudera helps enterprises plan for the inevitable changes; we help you get started, then operate and grow or sunset pieces of the cluster over time. This is a steady-state long-term ongoing platform, and with the release of Cloudera Enterprise 3.5 we are not only introducing enterprise-level security to Hadoop, but we're making it easier for enterprises to manage the relative importance of resources over time."

Cloudera claims 100 paying customers largely in the Fortune 500. It believes its future is in the Global 2000.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
