UPDATE - GoGrid Builds on Success of Cloudera Partnership With 1-Button Deploy™ for Trifacta

Cloudera Live Powered by GoGrid Orchestration Delivers a Simple Way for Businesses to Evaluate and Run Apache Hadoop™ With Data Analytics

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Dec 18, 2014) - GoGrid, an infrastructure-as-a-service leader specializing in multi-cloud solutions, today announced an expansion of its partnership with Cloudera, the leader in enterprise analytic data management powered by Apache Hadoop™, that provides a fast and easy way for companies to evaluate and run the market-leading platform for Big Data combined with the latest data analytics solutions. The new offering will allow businesses to begin using the data analytics provider Trifacta with Cloudera's open-source distribution including Apache Hadoop in a matter of hours, rather than weeks or months.

The free trial of Cloudera plus Trifacta, which customers can deploy by leveraging GoGrid's 1-Button Deploy™ orchestration, builds on the recent partnership between GoGrid and Cloudera to offer fast and easy test environments for companies interested in Big Data solutions. Instead of spending weeks or months on research, configuration and deployment, enterprises can get up and running with a complete Cloudera solution, including the necessary infrastructure, on day one. The partnership previously enabled companies to run free integrated trials of Cloudera plus Tableau and Zoomdata, and has been expanded following intense demand for the end-to-end data analytics solutions.

"Our initial partnership with Cloudera generated enormous market interest in less than two months, with hundreds of companies signing up for the new offering," said GoGrid CEO John Keagy. "Based on our initial success helping more businesses get started with Big Data solutions, we wanted to move ahead quickly to expand the program by adding Trifacta's unique capabilities."

The offering provides customers with a cloud-based environment that allows users to learn the basics of Cloudera along with Trifacta's data transformation platform through pre-loaded tutorials. With the latest addition to the Cloudera Live ecosystem, run on GoGrid's high-performance cloud infrastructure with 1-Button Deploy™ orchestration, companies can immediately spin up a four-node cluster of CDH and begin to analyze, search and visualize preloaded data sets or load in their own data to get started. Along with speedy deployment, the Cloudera plus Trifacta trial offers a user-friendly tutorial that demonstrates the basics of Hadoop, the latest features of CDH, and the extended capabilities of Trifacta.

Companies that try out Cloudera Live are also provided with optimized data sets so that they can immediately begin evaluating the platform through real-world scenarios. In addition, the trial allows companies that have already done the necessary "data wrangling" to load their own data sets onto the cloud-based infrastructure.

A free trial of Cloudera plus Trifacta will be available in January 2015.
