TransLattice, a database and application platform company that helps enterprises spread data across the globe as needed, rather than centralized on specialized, expensive architectures, has joined Cloudera’s Connect Partner Program.
The partner program is designed to grow the use of Apache Hadoop for a range of business applications, and is comprised of technology vendors, value added resellers (VARs) and managed service providers (MSPs) offering Hadoop-based solutions and services, according to Tim Stevens, vice president of business and corporate development at Cloudera.
“We are pleased to welcome TransLattice into the Cloudera Connect network of valued service and solution providers for Apache Hadoop and look forward to cultivating a mutually beneficial partnership with them,” Stevens said in a company statement. “As a trusted partner, we will endeavor to equip TransLattice with the tools and resources necessary to support, manage and innovate with Apache Hadoop-based solutions.”
By leveraging the domain expertise and expanding knowledge base offered by Cloudera and the greater Cloudera Connect partner ecosystem, TransLattice is able to help customers avoid some of the hurdles associated with deploying and managing Hadoop clusters and put its data to immediate use, Stevens added.
The TransLattice Elastic Database (TED), which is a geographically distributed relational database management system (RDBMS), is designed to give organizations additional capabilities to handle their Big Data needs.
Many Hadoop-based solutions need to interact with relational data in a RDBMS for further processing and TED is uniquely well-suited for that role due to its scale out architecture, very high availability and policy-based data management, according to said Frank Huerta, CEO at TransLattice.
TransLattice’s partnership with Cloudera gives organizations the opportunity to utilize Cloudera’s Hadoop environment while taking advantage of TransLattice’s geographically distributed relational database, he explained
“We are excited to join Cloudera Connect, as we continue to help our customers solve their business challenges by allowing them to leverage the best of both Cloudera and TransLattice,” Huerta said.
