As one of the more established players in the Hadoop distribution space, Cloudera offers an enterprise platform that makes the open-source Apache Hadoop framework business-ready. In addition to rounding out Hadoop with must-have enterprise features such as backup and disaster recovery, the company offers a realtime query engine for Hadoop called Impala, which allows its platform to perform both realtime and batch operations on virtually any kind of structured or unstructured data.

Palo Alto, Calif.-based Cloudera, which has grown to about 320 employees since its inception in 2008, is embracing the channel. Today, the company boasts more than 500 partners -- both on the technology and solution side of the house -- and has a formal channel program called Cloudera Connect Partner Program. The multitrack program is aimed at ISVs, VARs and systems integrators and offers a partner portal where solution providers can tap into technical, sales and marketing resources.
