My friend Amr Awadallah (whose birthday was yesterday) just announced his startup. Boy are these “cloudy” times – pun intended. It’s called Cloudera. Eric Eldon has the story.

Amr told me about his startup on one of my visits recently to Accel Partners. Amr is one smart guy who just left Yahoo. Amr has been an EIR at Accel for the past few months incubating this startup. Amr is a virtualization tech pro and a major Halo player. Amr has been around the virutalization world for many years and his advisor at Stanford where Amr was studying for his PhD is Mendel Rosenblum.

I expect this startup to be very relevant. Amr is a great guy who is super techy and very entrepreneurial. When I started PodTech when it was just me, Amr was there with friendship and encouragement. He was my second podcast on PodTech.

Big Congrats to Amr, the founding team, and Accel. Accel is lucky to have a guy like Amr in their stable.
