Cloudera Data Warehouse outperforms Azure HDInsight in TPC-DS benchmark

Performance is one of the key, if not the most important deciding criterion, in choosing a Cloud Data Warehouse service.

How to get powerful and actionable insights from any and all of your data, without delay

A North American telecom company struggled for years trying to react quickly enough to new categories and new levels of spam texts and calls. They also did not have a good way to know when and why they would need additional capacity on their own, or any other telecom company’s networks.

Addressing the data storm with the Enterprise Data Cloud

For some, this may look like a new category at this year’s Data Impact Awards. However, the Enterprise Data Cloud category marks the evolution of what was once the Data Anywhere category. The main reason for this change is that this title better represents the move that our customers are making; away from acknowledging the ability to have data ‘anywhere’.

Discover and Explore Data Faster with the CDP DDE Template

It is hard to believe if you have had previous experience with setting up, sizing, and deploying a distributed search engine service that this is possible. Imagine how many times IT has lost valuable time spending hours trying to understand Apache Solr application requirements and map them into how to best size and deploy the Solr service. Time that is lost to Line of Business as well.
