A new start-up is hoping to sell enterprises on the web database tools used to power services from Facebook and Yahoo.
Cloudera said that it will offer a version of the Hadoop online database platform geared towards businesses. The company was founded by Christophe Bisciglia, a former manager of Google's Hadoop database.
The open source tool has been used by social networking and web service providers to build and manage their own large-scale online databases.
"After working with large Hadoop deployments at companies like Facebook, Google and Yahoo, we came to realise that people needed Hadoop installation, configuration and management to be much easier," said Bisciglia.
"Cloudera is advancing Hadoop technology to make it easier for everyone to store and process the same types of big data that large web companies are successfully using in their businesses."
Cloudera sees Hadoop as a possible database solution for companies looking to migrate operations to open source products and web-based services, and the company is already offering bundles for Red Hat Linux servers and Amazon EC2 cloud systems.
The company is also offering a MyCloudera portal site to provide support and trials of Hadoop.
