Cloudera's forthcoming CDP Private Cloud offering is the next step in the CDP journey. CDP Data Center is a mandatory component of, and will become the base for, CDP Private Cloud. It will become the storage and data lake cluster, and will contain the SDX layer. It is therefore important to have some understanding of CDP Private Cloud as you plan your new deployment or upgrade to CDP Data Center.
Cloudera's forthcoming CDP Private Cloud offering will deliver a cloud-like experience in customer environments. CDP Private Cloud is a new approach to data management and analytics that delivers powerful self-service analytics across hybrid and multicloud environments. CDP Private Cloud leverages disaggregated compute and storage models to provide:
As shown in Figure 3, the CDP Private Cloud high-level architecture has some similarities with CDP Data Center. Building on the services established in CDP Data Center, CDP Private Cloud will deliver what are known as Analytic Experiences, as containerized services. These experiences include:
CDP Private Cloud, as with the Data Center edition, is supported by the Cloudera Shared Data Experience with support for all the capabilities of security, metadata, and governance.
Spanning across the platform is a management console that delivers a unified control plane which operates across multiple deployments or clouds.
There are two aspects of deploying CDP Private Cloud:
These two clusters are separate, and are independent tracks from an architecture and deployment planning perspective. Figure 4 illustrates these primary components in a complete deployment of CDP Private Cloud.
As you can see, an instance of CDP Data Center will become the base data lake cluster when you upgrade to CDP Private Cloud. In addition to this Reference Architecture guide, you should also review the "Dell EMC and Intel Infrastructure Guide for Cloudera Data Platform Private Cloud" when planning your CDP Data Center and potential hardware refresh.
