Alex Woodie describes some of the ramifications of Cloudera’s merger with Hortonworks:

Whatever camp you sit in, the merger undoubtedly caught the attention of the 2,500 organizations that have adopted Cloudera’s Distribution of Hadoop (CDH) or the Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) over the years — not to mention the thousands of other companies that have adopted open source Apache Hadoop platforms or Hadoop ecosystem components in the cloud. These Global 2000 companies have invested billions of dollars into building giant clusters to store and process many exabytes worth of data, and they’re not going to just turn them off overnight because the two biggest players suddenly decided to merge.

At the same time, these customers need to be reassured that Cloudera has a plan to maintain the investments they’ve already made in HDP and CDH platforms, both in a short-term or tactical sense, as well as in terms of Cloudera’s long-range strategy to evolve its platform to meet emerging future compute and storage needs.
