You already know that the enterprise sector is generating monumental amounts of big data faster than ever. You also know that this big data needs big analytics. But perhaps you’ve not yet fully realized the immense business growth potential these buried gems of insights could deliver. The enterprise needs to not only ask bigger questions of their data, they’ll need the answers faster and faster. Cloudera Enterprise*, an industry leader in enterprise data management partnered with Intel in a study of retail big data to ask big questions and deliver quick results.

Cloudera Enterprise offers the first unified platform for big data: The Enterprise Data Hub. One place to store, process, and analyze data will assist the enterprise customer in extending the reach of their current infrastructure while enabling an industry-wide adoption of Apache Hadoop* – changing the way companies derive value from their data. Cloudera is a leading educator of data professionals and works with over 900 hardware, software, and services partners to meet customer’s goals for their data. Since Cloudera offers one unified platform, it’s uniquely suited to the way Intel does data center: as one, simplified architecture.

Cloudera joined forces with Intel to dig deeper into big data, deriving insights the enterprise can act upon faster than ever. We put the partnership to the test, building an optimal platform to run Cloudera Enterprise CDH5 on the latest Intel Xeon® processor E5-2600 v3 product family, Intel® Ethernet Controllers 10 Gb/40 Gb, and Intel® SSD Data Center Family for PCIe. The next-gen Intel Xeon Processor E5 v3 family, designed to deliver the best combination of performance, built-in capabilities, and affordability, delivered actionable insights up to 2x faster in several cases.

If insight into big data happens faster, big business can find insight too.
