Hadoop specialist Cloudera and NoSQL database firm MongoDB have announced a strategic partnership to help organisations develop big data infrastructure to drive next-generation applications.
The two firms described this new partnership as being "more than a simple technology integration", and said their aim is to enable customers to fundamentally rethink how data can be shared and put to work across their organisation.
Cloudera, which specialises in Hadoop-based analytics tools and MongoDB, which develops the namesake-management tool for unstructured data, already offer some integration between their products. The MongoDB Connector for Hadoop, a plugin that enables MongoDB to be used as an input source or an output destination for Hadoop data, is already certified for the Cloudera Enterprise 5 platform.
Now, the two firms said they are working closely together on the next version of the MongoDB Connector for Hadoop to further simplify data-management between MongoDB and Hadoop, while additional technology integrations are also underway.
Cloudera has already secured a partnership with Intel that will see the chip giant become its largest shareholder, while promoting Cloudera Enterprise to its own customers.
MongoDB chief executive Max Schireson said businesses need to look to scalable and agile technologies to keep up with modern application demands.
"Cloudera and MongoDB have consistently focused on customer success with innovative solutions that make modern data infrastructure easy to develop and operate. This partnership will extend that promise, leading customers on a path to thrive in this new era of modern applications," he said.
Cloudera's chief strategy officer Mike Olson will deliver more details on the aims of the partnership during a keynote at MongoDB World on 24 June in New York.
