Cloudera acquires Eventador to accelerate Stream Processing in Public & Hybrid Clouds

We are thrilled to announce that Cloudera has acquired Eventador, a provider of cloud-native services for enterprise-grade stream processing. Eventador, based in Austin, TX, was founded by Erik Beebe and Kenny Gorman in 2016 to address a fundamental business problem – make it simpler to build streaming applications built on real-time data. This typically involved a lot of coding with Java, Scala or similar technologies.

On February 20th, 2011, I started on a journey. I wrote and committed my first lines of code to the Salt open source project. I was alone in my basement at the time, motivated by a desire to solve some technical problems and improve my resume. By April of 2011, I had cut the first release of Salt, version 0.6.

When SUSE, the world’s largest independent open source company, announced its acquisition of Rancher Labs in early July 2020, the industry took notice. Clearly, the Kubernetes management industry is very much alive. But, the merger also raised the question of what this means for users? After all, a key value proposition of cloud native technologies, like SUSE, is that they are modular, interoperable, and flexible.
