IoT devices given performance boost from open source Hadoop

Zebra Technologies pair up for IoT innovation, withe Hadoop Technology.

By Hannah Williams

Zebra Technologies and Cloudera are joining forces in order to leverage the power of Hadoop for the benefit of IoT devices.

Cloudera technology is set to be at the core of Zebra’s latest IoT offering, powering the enterprise data hub which will act as the foundation for the latter’s Asset Visibility Service (AVS).

Enabled by Hadoop technology, the AVS is a new IoT visibility offering which collects data from devices in order to offer insight into health, availability and utilisation of devices.

With the new offering, Zebra aims to “make businesses as smart and connected as the world we live in.”

This follows from reports this morning of Zebra Technologies selling its wireless LAN to Extreme Networks for $55m.

“AVS is exactly the type of high value data solution we’ve built Cloudera Enterprise to enable,” said Charles Zedlewski, vice president, Products at Cloudera. “Cloudera Enterprise, at the foundation of Zebra’s enterprise data hub, offers a robust suite of tools to deliver on that promise that directly address enterprise security, governance and manageability requirements. It enables Zebra to not only bring in data from these remote assets, but also combine and correlate that with other data sources both within and outside of the organisation to drive compelling business insights.”

A report from Gartner identifies that the number of organisations adopting IoT will grow by 50 percent this year.
