Sponsorship boosts operational support for Apache projects and community

Forest Hill, MD –17 February 2015– The Apache Software Foundation (ASF), the all-volunteer
developers, stewards, and incubators of more than 350 Open Source projects and initiatives,
announced today that Cloudera has renewed its sponsorship of the ASF with an upgrade to the
Platinum level.

"We are grateful for Cloudera's continued generous support, which, in turn, helps advance
the efforts of the Apache community at-large," said ASF President Ross Gardler. "Sponsoring
the ASF helps provide critical infrastructure and support services that keep the Foundation
running on a day-to-day basis."

As a United States 501(c)(3) not-for-profit charitable organization, the ASF relies on individual
donors and corporate sponsors to help bolster existing projects, incubate new initiatives,
and promote meritocratic, community-driven development "The Apache Way".

An ASF Sponsor since 2011, Cloudera is recognized as a champion and active contributor to
numerous Apache projects, including Avro, Hadoop, HBase, Hive, Pig, Whirr, and Zookeeper.

"Open source software has proven a powerful engine for innovation," said Mike Olson, Founder
and Chief Strategy Officer of Cloudera. "It harnesses the talent and creativity of the global
community of developers. Participation in that community is critical. Cloudera has long been
a proud member of the ASF. Developers on the Cloudera payroll have created and contributed
to ASF projects, working closely with their peers in the Apache Hadoop ecosystem. Our platinum
sponsorship of the ASF complements our active contribution of code. The organization provides
essential governance and community support on which our business relies. This donation, and
our ongoing commitment, allows the ASF to deepen its investment in community, collaboration
and innovation."

Cloudera joins Platinum level Sponsors Citrix, Facebook, Google, Matt Mullenweg, Microsoft,
and Yahoo!; Gold Sponsors Comcast, HP, Hortonworks, and IBM; Silver Sponsors Budget Direct,
Cerner, InMotion Hosting, iSIGMA, Pivotal, Produban, and WANdisco; and Bronze Sponsors Accor,
Basis Technology, Bluehost, Cloudsoft Corporation, Samsung, Talend, and Twitter. For more
