Cloudera joins Eclipse IoT community
Data management platform provider Cloudera has joined the Eclipse Foundation as a Solutions member, the company has announced.
By joining the foundation, Cloudera will now be participating in the Eclipse IoT Working Group wherein it will work hand in hand with industry leaders such as Bosch, Eurotech, Red Hat and Samsung Electronics to support the development of Eclipse IoT Open Testbeds.
Together, they will contribute and develop an end-to-end IoT framework that combines software stacks for constrained devices, gateways, and the cloud, while also including persistent store and advanced analytics with machine learning for applications.
In last five years, the Eclipse IoT community has been actively building a portfolio of open source projects, including Eclipse Kura – the open source stack for gateways – and Eclipse Kapua, the modular open source IoT cloud platform that provides services required for real-time data management and analytics, and management of IoT gateways and smart edge devices. Kapua also offers a core integration framework and an initial set of core IoT services including a device registry, device management services, messaging services, data management and application enablement.
Alexandra Rehak, practice leader for IoT at Ovum, said: "With billions of connected 'things' on the horizon, the volume of data to be analysed will increase dramatically and end user organisations will be looking for IoT solution architectures that embrace open standards and enable innovation. It will be increasingly important for technology leaders to contribute to the development of open source solutions and open standards for IoT with the aim of helping enterprises make IoT mainstream across industrial and consumer markets and for future, transformative use cases."
