Cloudera Data Platform Available on Microsoft Azure

By on

A recent press release reports, “Cloudera, the enterprise data cloud company, today announced the Cloudera Data Platform (CDP) powered by Microsoft Azure. CDP is an integrated data platform that is easy to secure, manage, and deploy. Now available on Azure, it delivers powerful, self-service analytics with a consistent Azure experience and enterprise-grade performance across hybrid environments with the granular security and governance policies that IT leaders demand. ‘Much like what happened with the Bring Your Own Device phenomenon of the last decade, today’s business users are demanding to Bring Their Own Data into the enterprise. They want to analyze, report, and predict business outcomes on that data in real-time,’ said Mick Hollison, chief marketing officer of Cloudera. ‘For enterprise IT, this means that delivering speed and agility is now just as important as security and governance when it comes to enterprise data management and advanced analytics. CDP, powered by Microsoft Azure, provides IT with an integrated data platform to work at the speed of business with enterprise-grade security, privacy, and compliance for any type of data’.”

The release continues, “CDP on Azure includes Cloudera’s Shared Data Experience (SDX), which makes it easy to create a secure data lake in hours instead of weeks and replaces tedious scripting with ‘set it and forget it’ convenience. With CDP on Azure, organizations can speed time to value for data engineering, data warehousing, and machine learning. Cloudera leverages Azure infrastructure services such as: (1) Azure Data Lake Storage (ADLS) to run high performance analytics with increased availability and durability. (2) Azure Resource Manager (ARM) templates to deploy infrastructure as code in Azure, ensuring rapid, consistent, and repeatable deployment of CDP services. (3) Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) to scale up or down depending on the analytics workload to more easily and cost effectively meet service level agreements (SLA) and take advantage of the benefits of cloud bursting.”
