In his letter from Cloudera, CEO Tom Reilly made a few interesting points.

$900 million round of funding

Cloudera secured a $900 million round of funding earlier this year, one of the largest ever in enterprise software. The majority of the investment came from Intel. Tom Reilly calls out security encryption at the chip level as an outcome of the Intel relationship.  Cloudera now has over 800 team members.

Acquisition of Gazzang and DataPad

Gazzang reportedly enables the industry’s first and only fully secure and regulation compliant Hadoop platform. DataPad has created a Python-based framework that simplifies data processing and analysis with Cloudera Enterprise.

Partnerships

The Cloudera partnerships listed are with Microsoft Azure, MongoDB, EMC, and Teradata.

Apache Spark

Apache Spark made huge strides, says Tom Reilly, and is well on its way to becoming the successor to MapReduce.

Impala

Cloudera believes Impala has continued to be the Hadoop SQL engine of choice.
