Today we launched Dell QuickStart for Cloudera Hadoop.  This new system is the next step in our ongoing dedication to helping customers make the most of their data. An easy starting point to taking control of data using Hadoop, it succeeds in simplifying the procurement and the deployment of a fully-supported Hadoop solution. 

QuickStart offers four important attributes:

  • Ease of use - offers simple deployment, a week of professional services, and a variety of optional training modules
  • Proof of concept - allows organizations to begin developing their own expertise through testing
  • Bundled services - provides open and secure hardware and software platform to manage, analyze and store data, as well as full support
  • Affordability - allows for upgrading to production-ready Hadoop clusters
