Cloudera chose Red Hat OpenShift as the preferred container solution for Cloudera Data Platform (CDP) Private Cloud.

With Red Hat OpenShift, CDP Private Cloud is expected to deliver powerful, self-service analytics and enterprise-grade performance with the granular security and governance policies that IT leaders demand. 

“Red Hat OpenShift’s position as the market-leading Kubernetes container platform, combined with its 100% open source nature, make it ideal for CDP Private Cloud,” said Arun Murthy, chief product officer at Cloudera.

“CDP Private Cloud, supported by Red Hat OpenShift, creates an enterprise data cloud with a powerful hybrid architecture that separates compute and storage for greater agility, ease of use, and more efficient use of private and public cloud infrastructure,” said Murthy.

He said that to keep pace in the digital era, businesses must modernise their data strategy for increased agility, ease of use and efficiency. Together, Red Hat OpenShift and CDP Private Cloud help create an essential hybrid, multi-cloud data architecture, enabling teams to rapidly onboard mission-critical applications and run them anywhere, without disrupting existing ones.

“The combination of Red Hat OpenShift and CDP Private Cloud aims to deliver a next-generation data analytics platform for on-premise deployments that can help to transform complex data into clearer and more actionable enterprise insights,” said Ashesh Badani, SVP at Red Hat.
