  SAN FRANCISCO, CA, August 21, 2009 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Cloudera, the commercial Hadoop company, today
announced the inaugural Hadoop World conference, which will take place Friday, October 2 at the Roosevelt Hotel in New

"Hadoop is changing the way that users manage and process ever-increasing volumes of data," said Christophe Bisciglia,
founder of Cloudera. "Hadoop World in New York City will showcase this powerful new open source technology, with special
focus on how traditional enterprises use it to solve real business problems."

Hadoop World will feature in-depth case studies and real-world examples of how traditional enterprises use Hadoop. To
date, representatives from enterprises including About.com, Booz Allen Hamilton, China Mobile, Context Web, eBay,
Facebook, IBM, Intel, JPMC, Microsoft, New York Times, NexR, Rackspace, Vertica, Visa, Visible Measures, Yale, and
Yahoo! take part in the event. These companies have changed the way they understand data by leaning on tools originally
developed for the Web.

Beyond popular web properties like Google, Yahoo! and Facebook, Hadoop is currently in production in a number of other
industry verticals, including advertising, biotech, financial services, and telecom. Hadoop World presentations will address
the wide spectrum of industries to which Hadoop solves problems with large data. Scheduled topics include data
warehousing, data mining, business Intelligence, fraud detection, protein alignment, logs processing, and general Web scale
data processing and analytics.

For three days leading up to Hadoop World, Cloudera will offer training and certification for developers, administrators and
