This unified distribution is a scalable and customizable platform where you can securely run many types of workloads.

Organizations invest countless hours and resources in their on-premises big data platform. They create data pipelines to aggregate data and then run various workloads on that data to make decisions leveraging platforms like CDH and HDP.  

Cloudera recently announced a new version of CDP Data Center, that allows customers to migrate or upgrade from their legacy CDH5 and HDP2.6 clusters and drive even more value from their data by gaining access to new features and functionality to enhance their big data experience.

  • Robust administration with Cloudera Manager allowing scalable cluster management
  • Enterprise-class administration for streams messaging with support for monitoring and replication services 
  • Addition of encryption for data at rest and in motion, making it easier to meet compliance and audit requirements

CDH5 customers can expect the following improvements:

  • Easy policy administration for all data services with Ranger, reducing management burden and enabling multi-tenant data access
  • Faster data warehouse queries and updates with Hive 3, making offloading workloads from Teradata even more attractive
  • Separation of  compute and storage with new object store capabilities provided by Ozone and HDFS, paving the way for transition to private cloud architectures
  • Enhanced data lineage with Atlas, improving traceability of data
  • Enterprise-class administration for streams messaging with support for monitoring and replication services

The base edition provides the SDX data context layer with built-in authorization, governance and security principles that serve as the foundation of a robust analytics platform.

Customers can now continue to build on the applications and code that has been developed and tuned for years with the base edition, and create an optimized experience through features like workload isolation and compute storage disaggregation with the CDP Private Cloud.
