Data warehouse provider Cloudera is expanding support for Apache Iceberg, making it available on the private cloud version of its Cloudera Data Platform (CDP). This takes CDP-Private Cloud into line with the company’s CDP-Public Cloud offering, which introduced support for Apache Iceberg last year.
CDP-Private Cloud is now available as a technology preview and will become generally available later this summer.
CDP is Cloudera’s flagship product that includes both data management and analytics services. It provides a safe, fast path to trusted Enterprise AI based on an advanced open data lakehouse that enables deployment of the latest AI models with data anywhere. Cloudera makes emerging technologies like large language models (LLM) and real-time self-service analytics at scale easily accessible to all its customers.
“Large enterprises want to get business value from all their data using AI and data analytics. Our announcement today of Apache Iceberg support on private clouds means our best-in-class Open Data Lakehouse just continues to get better” said Ram Venkatesh, Cloudera chief technology officer. “Our customers can now gain from Iceberg ‘everywhere’ they need it to be.”
Cloudera provides an open data lakehouse that operates across multiple public clouds and on-premises, so a customer’s data can stay where it's best suited. CDP provides unified security and governance across all data - structured and unstructured - enabling access to data with the same experience everywhere.
Apache Iceberg is a building block of the open data lakehouse. With this release, Large Language Models can now leverage all the petabytes of data that are under management with Cloudera which directly translates to more users across the organisation being able to tap into more of the data, and in more ways.
“Apache Iceberg is a key technology capable of enabling multi-function and multi-vendor data ecosystems, a big win for enterprises that need to involve all their data to get the most from AI.” said Merv Adrian, founder and principal analyst, IT Market Strategy. “Cloudera’s ‘Iceberg everywhere’ accomplishment is a good example of industry leadership towards enabling true cloud data ecosystems.”
