Cloudera Certifies SQLstream s-Server on Cloudera Enterprise 5

cloudera_certifiedSAN FRANCISCO, CA – April 3rd, 2014 – SQLstream, Inc., leaders in powering next- generation smart services, today announced the certification of its s-Server stream processor on Cloudera Enterprise 5. The certification couples the real-time power of SQLstream’s stream processor with the enterprise data hub capabilities of Cloudera’s platform for Big Data.

SQLstream s-Server brings SQL standards-compliant real-time stream processing to Cloudera’s next generation Hadoop powered platform.

“We see value in having SQLstream s-Server 4.0 certified on Cloudera Enterprise 5. Enterprises that deploy enterprise data hubs in their environments, and need SQLstream’s stream processing capabilities, will be able to take advantage of the latest innovations from both companies,” said Tim Stevens, vice president of Business and Corporate Development at Cloudera.

The certification covers the s-Server streaming connector for Hadoop, a high performance adapter that automatically creates the Map-Reduce jobs required to load streaming data into Hadoop and to retrieve and replay stored streams. Data streams are automatically partitioned and distributed across replicated nodes in the Cloudera Enterprise Hadoop cluster, and can be queried using tools such as Hive.

“We are proud to work with Cloudera on this exciting initiative,” said Damian Black, SQLstream CEO. “Users of Cloudera Enterprise 5 who wish to power real-time smart services at massive scale, will get those benefits from our s-Server while retaining all the benefits of a Cloudera-powered Enterprise Data Hub.”

SQLstream’s stream processor enables live data streams to be queried using standards-compliant, continuous SQL at rates of over 500,000 records/second per core, and to ingest data at hundreds of MB/second. For Cloudera customers, the certification of s-Server provides the infrastructure to automatically stream machine data and analytics into Hadoop at ingest rates that are significantly higher than any other interface; moreover, stored data can be joined with real-time streams or re-streamed for fast-forward analysis.

SQLstream Stream Processors power smart services and other real-time business processes using analytics from unstructured sensor, log, and other machine-generated Big Data streams. SQLstream’s core engine, s-Server, is a distributed, streaming SQL platform for real-time operational intelligence applications, fully integrated with Hadoop and other enterprise data management platforms. SQLstream is the recipient of leading industry awards, including the Ventana Research Technology Innovation Award for IT Analytics and Performance. SQLstream is based in San Francisco, CA.
