Cleo Joins Hortonworks Technology Program

LOVES PARK, Ill., April 1 — Cleo, an industry leader in information integration, today announced it has joined the Hortonworks Technology Partner Program to provide secure and reliable integration solutions for clients managing big data initiatives using the power of Apache Hadoop.

Hortonworks develops, distributes and supports the Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP), the only 100 percent open-source distribution of Hadoop explicitly architected, built and tested for enterprise-grade deployments. As part of the Hortonworks Technology Partner Program, Cleo’s single-platform solutions provide absolute information transfer into HDP, enabling deep integration with existing IT investments and empowering enterprises to build and deploy Hadoop-based applications.

The ability to cost-effectively store vast amounts of data in Hadoop presents a significant opportunity for organizations to effectively analyze massive information sets and improve market understanding, competitiveness and operational efficiency. Cleo enables the movement of large data sets, and the integration with the Hortonworks Data Platform helps companies to further leverage the power of Hadoop combined with data movement capabilities to remain competitive.

“As big data and associated analytics and decisioning solutions proliferate, there is an unmet need for information integration solutions to securely and reliably move massively large data sets both within the enterprise and beyond,” said Mahesh Rajasekharan, Ph.D., CEO of Cleo. “Cleo is very excited to help the industry meet this need through its partnership with Hortonworks in order to enable quick and easy business access to high-resolution and big data intelligence sources.”

“We are excited to announce this partnership with Cleo,” said John Kreisa, vice president of strategic marketing at Hortonworks. “Cleo’s proven solutions demonstrate the crucial ability to efficiently and reliably scale to transport large files and data sets, which is a capability now available to the Hadoop ecosystem. Together, we look forward to serving our customers as they work to unlock even more value from their big data.”
