Teradata and Cloudera announced on Wednesday plans to collaborate on Hadoop-powered enterprise analytics and data-warehousing projects.
Under the plans, Teradata customers will be able to use Cloudera's Hadoop distribution to analyse unstructured data collected from various sources. This information can then be funneled into a Teradata data warehouse.
The partnership is notable as Hadoop is viewed by companies as a way to work around data-warehousing systems. Yahoo is a big champion of Hadoop as a way to handle large-scale data analytics.
