Secure & Monitored

Best-in-class enterprise security and compliance, including encryption and 24×7 monitoring, for cloud confidence.


ADA handles a wide range of enterprise workloads with solutions that include the Cloudera EDH stack, cloud infrastructure (Azure or AWS) and other data and analytics components. Solutions are intelligently provisioned, optimized for your workloads and fully-managed by ADA.

Complete Data Science Platform

The ADA Data Science Solution gives you everything for advanced analytics in one platform, including capabilities to securely ingest, store, share and analyze data with R, Python, Java, SQL or many other methods. The Spark-powered Data Science platform is intelligently optimized by ADA for ideal workload performance and flexibility. Analyze data with Cloudera’s Hue or Data Science Workbench, or connect any other analytics tools such as RStudio Server Pro.

Spark Platform for Analytic Apps

Get a data platform for advanced analytics applications in a matter of hours — no waiting. Run analytics on a powerful Spark platform without any devops skills or setup time. It’s easy to connect any analytic applications with ADA (we help!) and our partners offer solutions optimized for specific processes such as predictive behavioral analytics for eCommerce or marketing mix optimization for life sciences.

Fully-Managed Data Lake

Manage high-volume data collection, processing and analytics with an easy interface to a Cloudera EDH (Hadoop/Spark) data store, along with data movers, security and analytic features. Collect, consolidate and run batch processes on data from sources such as SaaS applications, IOT/sensor logs, purchased datasets, etc. Use data lakes for data engineering, transformations, staging, and archiving historical data so it can be accessed and queried.

Hybrid Data Architectures, Augmentation of On-Prem Clusters

Easily augment existing clusters with cloud resources. Add new capacity or new capabilities instantly — such as a new cloud environment for Cloudera Data Science Workbench, with the required software versions and configuration for performance. ADA makes it easy to keep the cloud and data-centers securely connected, with the ADA Gateway software. ADA drops-in to existing environments easily.

Flexible Data Engineering and Data Pipelines

With ADA, a single environment can support a wide variety of workloads. That makes it easier to setup data pipelines and data flows that work in near-real-time. Collect huge volumes of log or sensor data in a ADA Data Lake optimized for storage. Then move subsets into a ADA Data Science Sandbox for discovery or send data back to on-premises operational systems, or both.


ADA gets you up and running quickly, provisioning new environments in 2 hours or less. ADA is able to move quickly due to automation and intelligence built-into our platform, along with an expert staff that helps manage cloud connections into complicated enterprise environments.

Self-Service Interface

ADA has a simple web browser interface that’s intuitive and easy for analysts, data engineers and data scientists. Instantly on-board talent and give them the flexibility they need, with the security and management control the company requires.

ADA hides the complexity of the cloud and reduces the burden of securing, configuring, administering and managing many big data processing engines like Spark and Hadoop.

Security & Data Movement

The data mover interface makes it simple for analysts to load data from connected sources, even for less technical users. Compression and encryption are built-in and automatic, so ADA users can move data to and from the cloud with peace of mind.

Data encryption, compression and movement are capabilities of the ADA Gateway, lightweight software that runs on systems or workstations that need cloud access.

Any Analytic Tool

ADA ensures secure seamless connectivity between Cloudera in the cloud and existing enterprise analytic, BI or ETL tools. This is also delivered with the ADA Gateway software, which manages secure data and tool connections.

Use Cloudera tools such as Hue or Data Science Workbench or connect other analytic tools (RStudio Server Pro, etc.). Now teams can easily use R, Python, Java, Scala, etc. with all the benefits of Spark.


ADA bundles everything into solutions and supports them end to end. That means one call to ADA when you have a question about your data platform. No wasted time or resources troubleshooting, isolating the problem, tracking down the right vendor – or worrying about operations, upgrades, patches or maintenance… we’ll handle it quickly and efficiently.

Fully-managed, production-grade operations –ADA provides ongoing production operations such as backup of configurations, upgrades, disaster recovery and security patching. That means no wasted time for teams worrying about cluster administration or troubleshooting.

High touch support – ADA provides 24 x 7 high-touch support. That means one call for any Cloudera or cloud issues. Escalation moves through solution architects, engineers and developers, all with years of experience on Cloudera, data and cloud platforms. ADA also has strong partnerships with Cloudera, other technology partners and cloud providers to triage complex issues, if need arises.

Intelligent Provisioning and Ongoing Optimization SLA monitoring – ADA handles all provisioning, using automation to deploy quickly on Azure or AWS. ADA provisions Cloudera Spark, Hadoop and other components using Workload Intelligence, which ensures the ideal cloud configuration to deliver the best price-performance and SLA assurance, often at a reduced cost. ADA provides ongoing performance monitoring and optimization, and benchmarks cloud infrastructure performance. In an ever-evolving cloud environment, ADA automatically optimizes Cloudera clusters to ensure SLAs are satisfied.

One Simple Bill – ADA bundles everything – including infrastructure fees from AWS or Azure – into the managed Cloudera offering, so analysts do not have to worry about creating or managing their cloud subscriptions. Our pricing model allows for predictable pricing, with room for expansion. Pricing is based on the ADA services deployed rather than complex cloud pricing models. Everyone is on one invoice, sent on a monthly, quarterly, or annual basis.


ADA was built from the ground up for cloud security and has the specialized software and expertise to deliver the most secure Cloudera deployments in the public cloud. All services include the ADA Gateway software, which securely connects analytics applications and data sources with ADA. The Gateway is designed to seamlessly connect cloud and on-premise environments, including functions to manage networking, VPN, data access, user access, analytics tools and manageability.
