Cloudera on Wednesday released Cloudera Director 1.5, which will now integrate with Google Cloud Platform.
The company's Cloudera Director 1.5 is a suite for deploying and managing Hadoop in the cloud. Cloudera Director 1.5 had already supported Amazon Web Services. Cloudera Director rides shotgun with the Cloudera Enterprise distribution of Hadoop.
Apache Hadoop is an open source big data platform that has gained traction in the enterprise. Cloudera's plan is to use an open application programming interface strategy to forge partnerships, integrate with cloud providers and build enterprise-grade Hadoop.
Google integrated its cloud platform with Cloudera Director and made it easier for customers to deploy Cloudera's tools. The win for Cloudera is more deployments.

Cloudera Director 1.5 also adds high availability features for clusters as well as Kerberos integration on security. Cloudera said it has also improved the user interface.
