Dell Technologies and Cloudera have collaborated to deliver best-in-class solutions for analytics on optimized infrastructure for nearly a decade, since the dawn of the Big Data era. During this time, we have jointly developed numerous solutions for flexible, scalable, and enterprise-class analytics applications based on Cloudera software and Dell EMC infrastructure.
These analytic solutions have grown to encompass far more than Apache Hadoop. The modern data platform includes a multitude of capabilities and applications that span the complete data lifecycle, including data ingest and collection, data engineering and enrichment, data warehousing, data analysis, reporting, and even predictive analytics with AI and machine learning.
Our latest release is a Dell Technologies Validated Design for Analytics entitled Data Management with Cloudera Data Platform on Intel-powered Dell EMC Infrastructure. This release features Cloudera Data Platform (CDP) Private Cloud Base 7.1.7 and Dell EMC PowerEdge Servers with 3rd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors.
CDP Private Cloud Base, previously known as CDP Data Center, contains the best of the legacy Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) and Cloudera Distribution for Hadoop (CDH) along with numerous new features and capabilities. Plus it contains the most extensive set of upgrade enhancements and upgrade pathways from previous releases to date.
CDP Private Cloud Base is the on-premises version of Cloudera Data Platform and includes the following primary components:
And it all runs on the latest Dell EMC server, storage, and networking infrastructure that has been architected and optimized as a complete, PowerEdge, PowerScale and PowerSwitch, integrated solution for Cloudera Data Platform.
What’s new in this release
In addition to all the core capabilities of Cloudera Data Platform, CDP Private Cloud Base 7.1.7 introduces:
Why it matters
CDP Private Cloud base is important for three main reasons. First, for new deployments, CDP Private Cloud Base is a complete stand-alone instance of Cloudera Data Platform that delivers powerful analytic, transactional, and machine learning workloads with scalable compute and storage. It contains the latest and greatest features of the Hortonworks and Cloudera heritages, plus so much more, and is thus the best choice out there for a comprehensive data platform.
Second, for upgrades from legacy CDH and HDP environments, CDP Private Cloud Base is the ultimate endpoint. This release fulfills Cloudera’s vision for in-place upgrades from all supported CDH and HDP versions.
And third, CDP Private Cloud Base is the basis for the latest innovation from Cloudera, CPD Private Cloud Data Services. Together, Base and Data Services form the complete CDP Private Cloud offering. The Data Services include a set of containerized self-service analytic experiences that run on Kubernetes, including Data Engineering, Data Warehouse, and Machine Learning services. CDP Private Cloud Data Services are available today from Cloudera and will be available soon as part of a Dell Technologies Validated Design for Analytics.
All documentation, including the White Paper, Design Guide and solution brief, can be found on the Dell Technologies Info Hub for Analytics. Information on all of Dell Technologies’ solutions for analytics can be found on our Analytics Solutions page.
