Cloudera Hosting

High-powered Hadoop.

With the help of Cloudera, we've simplified the configuration, ordering, provisioning, and management of Cloudera's Distribution including Apache Hadoop (CDH), the most widely used Hadoop project in the world.

We can deploy a production-ready Hadoop environment in your choice of data center(s) in just a few hours, and you'll have direct access to Cloudera Manager to modify, tweak, and manage your big data platform.



Bare Metal Power

Avoid the performance costs of shared hardware in virtual systems.

Full Control

Completely customize your solution and control where servers and replica sets are deployed.

Expert-approved

Developed in partnership with Cloudera for optimized server configurations, software, and support.


Recommended Server Configurations

We partnered with Cloudera to determine bare metal server configurations that reliably provide peak operational performance for Cloudera Hadoop. Hadoop management, process, and storage nodes each encounter different types of workloads, so the nodes' hardware should fit each of those workloads specifically.
