Cloudera hires Google exec to lead its Hadoop development team

Hadoop vendor Cloudera Inc. has made an interesting hire in the shape of Daniel Sturman, an 8-year Google exec who was most recently a VP of Engineering at the Internet giant.

Sturman joined Cloudera as its new VP of Engineering on Monday, and according to a press release will “lead all development within the company, with the Apache Software community and with Cloudera’s 1,600+ global partners.”

Cloudera is one of the hottest players on the Big Data market right now, and is making big efforts to spur adoption of Hadoop in the enterprise. The company is still privately owned, but has so far raised more than $1.2 billion, and is rumored to be valued at close to $5 billion.

Sturman, who was responsible for overseeing the infrastructure that underlies Google’s massive cloud platform, will likely be instrumental in making Hadoop easier for enterprises to deploy. He’ll also be tasked with making the platform easier to use, so enterprises can better extract valuable insights from their data, said Casey Green, executive vice president of business development at Avalon Consulting LLC, in an interview with CRN.com.

Green says that Cloudera has pulled off a significant coup in landing Sturman, who was central to making Google’s cloud software more accessible.

“While at Google, Sturman led efforts to lower the entry level to cloud computing with Google Cloud and Google App Engine,” Green told CRN. “By adding Sturman to its team, Cloudera is making a savvy move to position themselves further to innovate in making Hadoop easier.”
