Hadoop Summit: Chatting with Cloudera’s VP of Product

The next in my series of videos from the Hadoop Summit features Cloudera‘s Vice President of product, Charles Zedlewski.  If you’re not familiar with Cloudera you can think of them as the Red Hat of Hadoop world.

I sat down with Charles to learn more about Cloudera, what they do and where they came from.

Some of the ground Charles covers:

  • Cloudera’s founding, what its original goals and vision were and where its founders came from.
  • (1:35) What Cloudera does for customers 1) packages Hadoop and 2) helps them run it in production environments.
  • (3:27)  What channels Cloudera leverages and where they play in the ecosystem
  • (4:11)  Charles’ thoughts on the Yahoo spin-out Hortonworks and how it might affect Cloudera.
