Cloudera continued its evolution away from Hadoop today by announcing a technical preview for Cloudera Machine Learning, its new data science and data engineering platform that's based on Kubernetes, which enables it to run in the cloud and on premise. Hadoop's influence has waned, in many respects, in direct proportion to the rise of public cloud platforms. Instead of taking the time to build and manage Hadoop clusters to store big data and run analytics on them, companies are turning to cloud providers like Amazon Web Services, who can offer cheap object storage and scalable compute resources. This changing market dynamic has helped to drive 46% year-over-year revenue growth for AWS, and Microsoft Azure and Google Compute Platform are growing even faster. In many ways, the October merger of Cloudera and Hortonworks was a response to this dynamic.
