Enterprise data cloud company Cloudera has announced the general availability of Cloudera Data Platform Private Cloud (CDP Private Cloud).

Anupam Singh, chief customer officer, Cloudera, says CDP Private Cloud extends cloud-native speed, simplicity and economics for the connected data lifecycle to the data center, enabling IT to respond to business needs faster and deliver "rock-solid" service levels so people can be more productive with data.

"CDP Private Cloud data analytics experiences help people, teams and businesses work smarter, not harder," he says,

"People are more productive because they have self-service access to the data and analytics they need to work more efficiently. Teams are more collaborative because they can quickly access and share data anywhere.

"Businesses are more agile because they make decisions faster and better with CDP Private Cloud's powerful data analytics experiences."

Singh says operating CDP Private Cloud is simpler for IT, with powerful container-based management tools that reduce the time to deliver analytics and machine learning from weeks to minutes.

It also changes the game for data center economics with container-based analytics and machine learning to help reduce data center costs by increasing server utilisation up to 70%, while also reducing storage and data center overhead. Overall, CDP Private Cloud can deliver up to 50% more analytics for the same data center investment, he says.

"With CDP Private Cloud, IT can now meet the exponential demand for data analytics and machine learning services, with a petabyte-scale hybrid data architecture that can flex to use private and public clouds," says Singh.

According to IDC, 84% of customers are repatriating workloads from the public cloud with 67% of applications in both public and private cloud environments.

"Hybrid cloud is strategic and practical for large enterprises. CDP Private Cloud is built for hybrid cloud, seamlessly connecting on-premises environments to public clouds with consistent, built-in security and governance. It runs the same easy-to-use analytic experiences in the data center that have been proven in CDP Public Cloud on AWS and Azure," Singh explains.

"Only Cloudera delivers this level of hybrid cloud user experience, operations consistency and infrastructure choice."

Cloudera has an ecosystem of technology partners that are certified on Cloudera Data Platform including Anaconda, Gluent,, OwlDQ, Pepperdata, Portworx, Precisely, Protegrity, Qlik, Talend, and Unravel Data.

Pricing and Availability
CDP Private Cloud is available in Base and Plus editions. The Base edition includes SDX, storage management and traditional bare metal data lifecycle analytics. It is equivalent to CDP Data Center, which it replaces.

The Plus edition includes Base and adds container-based analytic experiences for Data Warehousing and Machine learning, and container-based management and control plane services. Additional control plane services and analytic experiences across the data lifecycle are planned for future CDP Private Cloud offerings.
