Cloudera, an Apache Hadoop implementor raises an insane 900m
Cloudera just completed a $900M funding round. This incorporates the $160M they announced a week or so ago.
This is obviously great for Cloudera. For just 18% of the company they got $740M from Intel (plus sold away a few other equity points to other investors). It also signifies something more: The complete shape of data infrastructure is changing.
MongoDB has had a Hadoop connector for a while now. It has been used by several customers, like FourSquare. To cement this relationship more, Mike Olson, Cloudera co-founder and Chief Strategy Officer will keynote at MongoDB World this June at New York City.
