Talend seals deal with Cloudera to deliver big data agility in the cloud

27 May 17

Talend has announced it is working with Cloudera as the first integration provider to support Cloudera Altus.

The newly released Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offering reportedly simplifies running large scale data processing applications in the public cloud.

According to the integration provider, companies can use the combination of Altus and Talend to reduce overall data management costs, accelerate and simplify hybrid, on-premises, and cloud big data projects.

“We’re excited about Altus because it allows companies to deploy big data projects dramatically faster with far less operational support,” says Michael Pickett, vice president, Business Development and Partner Ecosystems, Talend.

“Talend is extending this value proposition by making it incredibly easy to build and seamlessly deploy intelligent data pipelines onto the Altus platform.”

According to Altus, its service targets foundational data transformation and processing workloads while at the same time minimising cluster management and operations.

The service allows enterprises to easily spin up/spin down Cloudera clusters without the steep learning curve often associated with cloud.

Head of business development at Cloudera, Tom Pinckney says Talend’s partnership with them is making it  easy for thousands of data sources to be made available on the Altus platform and to simply execute data pipelines against those ingested data sets.

“By integrating with Altus, Talend is ensuring that our joint customers can seamlessly get up and running on the Cloudera platform - speeding their time to value,” says Pinckney.

“This is a big win for customers who will now have the ability to quickly and easily build and run elastic data pipelines on the trusted Cloudera distribution that feeds complex BI, data science, and real-time applications.” 

Talent affirms the partnership will enable developers to build intelligent data pipelines on the Altus platform, leveraging all its capabilities for managing and monitoring big data applications in the cloud.

Cloudera customers will be able to transparently build big data integration jobs that can run both on-premises and in the cloud, while Amazon Web Services customers will be able to take advantage of the added value, making it easier for organisations to add big data to their existing cloud data management infrastructure.
