Cloudera Founded
Cloudera is one of three companies that provide the main commercial distributions of open source Hadoop.
The company was founded in 2008 by three engineers from Google, Yahoo, and Facebook, along with a former Oracle executive, and released its first Hadoop distribution in 2009. One of the creators of Hadoop, Doug Cutting, serves as chief architect at the Palo Alto, Calif.-based company. 
Cloudera received funding from a number of Silicon Valley regulars, but chip giant Intel took a majority stake in the company in March 2014.

Production version is relatively new
Interesting points on Hadoop. I think of Hadoop as one of the earliest and most straight forward examples of how a cloud software system is supposed to work. Hard to believe the 1.0 version was as recent at 2012.

I'm used to seeing fairly bullish prediction, but usually there is at least some qualifier involved. I'm surprised they go all out and say 100% here: "Enterprise Hadoop is a market that is not even 10 years old, but Forrester estimates that 100% of all large enterprises will adopt [Hadoop and related technologies such as Spark] for big data analytics within the next two years."
