Using GoGrid's 1-Button Deploy orchestration process, Cloudera users can begin a trial using the company's Cloudera Live CDH distribution in a matter of hours, rather than weeks or months, the companies said.
More specifically, the partnership will enable companies to spin up a four-node cluster of CDH for free and begin to analyze, search and visualize preloaded data sets or load in their own data to get started.
Currently, the partnership also enables companies to run integrated trials of Tableau and Zoomdata on top of the CDH platform, with additional partner trials to follow.
"Companies today recognize the enormous potential of Big Data solutions, but still struggle to find ways to evaluate and implement them in a timely and cost-effective manner," said GoGrid CEO John Keagy, in a statement. "Our partnership with Cloudera gives these businesses a chance to experience the power of the leading analytic data management platform immediately, without expending IT resources on installation and deployment."
