"When Cloudera emerged from stealth in 2009, the vision was to bring Hadoop to the enterprise," said Tom Reilly, chief executive officer at Cloudera. "At the time, the idea of 'big data' was on the cusp of adoption. Five years later, Cloudera is setting the standard for how enterprises across all verticals are managing their big data. The market demand for these technologies is fierce as companies realize the competitive advantage and strategic value of their data."

We turned to Brad Shimmin, a principal analyst at Current Analysis, to get his take on the investment. He told us monies from Google and Dell are a strong endorsement for Cloudera and further validation of the efficacy of adopting modern data repositories like Hadoop.

"In the past, enterprises putting together a data strategy used technologies to build data warehouses that were pretty cumbersome, pretty onerous to maintain and pretty costly to build, too," Shimmin said. "When you look at how companies like Cloudera and other Apache Hadoop distributors have been building their solutions, you can see that this is a distributed file system that's capable of much more than it was originally intended for. It's something that can serve as a very flexible data repository to perhaps become the more modern data warehouse."
