Description Cloudera is startup that was one of the first to attempt to commercialize the open-source database platform, Hadoop.
GigaOM’s Take Cloudera could one day be a billion-dollar business, but the market is still relatively small today with only 100 customers. Still, Hadoop is a white-hot market and Cloudera is the most-experienced commercial provider in it, with an enterprise-hardened distribution now in its third generation, and a slew of partners up the big data stack.
