Fully-Managed Cloudera Solutions on Azure and AWS


Cloudera EDH is being deployed widely in enterprises to enable Hadoop, Spark and Impala workloads. But deploying and configuring a secure, production Cloudera environment can be a complex, time-consuming task. Ongoing operations require specialized skills and managing a rapidly changing technology landscape. And as use of Cloudera grows, requirements for more agility and scalability are pushing more enterprises to the public cloud. 

That’s why teams need a fully-managed Cloudera cloud service that can speed up deployments and reduce the ongoing operational and administration burden. Now companies can move faster and implement new big data and analytic functions without dev-ops or lengthy training processes.  

Cazena offers simple, secure Cloudera Services in the Cloud, delivered on our fully-managed, Big Data Platform as a Service on Microsoft Azure and AWS. Cazena's Cloudera solutions are specifically secured and optimized for the cloud and designed to drop-in to existing environments in four weeks or less. Now companies can get all the benefits of Cloudera as a 24 x 7, fully-managed service.

“Cazena has developed a comprehensive managed service for enterprises that want to leverage the cloud for big data analytic workloads. Cloudera has set a new standard with our enterprise data hub offering. We are excited to partner with Cazena to further reduce complexity and time to value for our mutual customers.”
