Cloudera, which distributes an enterprise edition of Hadoop, has formed an integration alliance with EMC's Greenplum unit.

Under the partnership, Cloudera's distribution of Hadoop will be integrated with EMC's Greenplum Chorus platform as well as with the Greenplum massively parallel processing database.

A Cloudera connector between structured and unstructured data will be supported by both the company and EMC Greenplum. In addition, both companies will create joint sales opportunities.

The EMC Greenplum-Cloudera partnership mirrors Cloudera's recent tie-up with Teradata, another one of its key partners in data warehousing.
