This document is the Design Guide for the Dell Technologies Validated Design (DTVD) for Data Management with Cloudera CDP Private Cloud Base. It may be read along with the associated white paper of the same name, which provides an overview of what an enterprise data platform is, benefits, and typical use cases. The white paper provides a description of Cloudera Data Platform, including the component clusters of CDP Private Cloud Base and CDP Private Cloud Data Services, and discusses the journey to CDP, including:
- Upgrades and migrations to CDP Private Cloud Base
- The relation of CDP Private Cloud Base as a foundation for CDP Private Cloud
This design guide provides the infrastructure guidance and a validated reference architecture, which is designed for high availability, that includes:
- The software infrastructure and cluster architecture
- The Dell EMC PowerEdge server configurations
- The Dell EMC PowerSwitch networking architecture and configurations
When CDP Private Cloud Base is being used with CDP Private Cloud Data Services to form CDP Private Cloud, this document should be used with the CDP Private Cloud Data Services documentation on the Cloudera documentation website.
Dell Technologies and Cloudera have been collaborating for over eight years to provide customers with guidance on optimal hardware to streamline the design, planning, and configuration of their Cloudera deployments. This document is based on the collective experience of both companies in deploying and running enterprise production environments.
