Organizations are increasingly working with multiple cloud providers. A recent Gartner survey of public cloud users found that 81% of respondents are using two or more providers to avoid vendor lock-in.
IDC predicts that 2021 will be the year of multi-cloud with over 90% of enterprises worldwide relying on a mix of on-premises/dedicated private clouds, multiple public clouds, and legacy platforms to meet their infrastructure needs.
Back in 2019, Cloudera announced its Cloudera Data Platform (CDP) for public cloud. It continuous the trend with the release of the Cloudera Data Platform (CDP) Operational Database on both Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure.
CDP Operational Database is a fully managed cloud-native NoSQL database designed for business-critical operational applications that require scale, performance, and reliability. It works across public and private cloud environments, including on-premises, and enables application developers to deliver prototypes in under an hour on their choice of cloud, with the power to effortlessly scale to petabytes of data.
Application developers can deliver mission-critical applications with speed because CDP Operational Database auto-scales, auto-heals and auto-tunes based on workload needs.
Briglal Kattamaparambil, director of Development at Epsilon says the CDP Operational Database enabled them to move one of their main datasets into the new database on AWS in record time. “We no longer have to worry about infrastructure planning as it is fully self-managed and allows us the flexibility to choose the cloud platform that works best for our business,” he added.
“Multi-cloud is the future and the global need to enable remote business has only accelerated this shift,” said Arun Murthy, chief product officer at Cloudera.
“With CDP Operational Database, companies no longer need to make sacrifices when it comes to their database. Enterprises can deploy on any cloud infrastructure to move at the speed that their customers demand, while also maintaining flexibility.”
