Apache Hadoop-focused management serviceCloudera has considerably updated its Cloudera Enterprise software and will begin offering a free version of Cloudera Manager that startups can use, the company announced this morning.
Cloudera makes it possible for companies like Samsung, Aol and Groupon to manage and mine loads of unstructured and structured data. It provides its own spin on Hadoop’s powerful open-source data management software and couples it with IT support and management tools. With the announcement of Cloudera Enterprise 3.7 today, Cloudera is both helping its customers by giving them a larger tool set for managing Hadoop and giving small companies a chance to use Hadoop for free.
