Cloudera's CDP Private Cloud offering is the next step in the CDP journey. CDP Private Cloud Base is a mandatory component of, and is the base for, CDP Private Cloud. It is the storage and data lake cluster, and contains 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 Private Cloud Base.
CDP Private Cloud overview
The complete CDP Private Cloud offering delivers a cloud-like experience in customer data center 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 Experiences leverages disaggregated compute and storage models to provide:
Simpler multitenancy and isolation
Better infrastructure utilization
Containerization, with Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform
Cloud native architecture
As shown in CDP Private Cloud high-level architecture, CDP Private Cloud builds on the storage and services that are established in CDP Private Cloud Base and delivers what are known as Analytic Experiences, as containerized services. These experiences will, in time, include:
Data Flow and Streaming
Note: Data Warehouse and Machine Learning are the first two experiences that are delivered, and are included in this release.
The Cloudera Shared Data Experience supports CDP Private Cloud and CDP Private Cloud Base with 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.
