CDP Private Cloud delivers powerful analytic, transactional, and machine learning workloads in a hybrid data platform. It combines the agility and flexibility of a public cloud with the control of the data center. With elastic analytics and scalable object storage, CDP Private Cloud modernizes traditional single-cluster deployments into a scalable and efficient end-to-end data platform.
CDP Private Cloud Base is the unification of Cloudera Distribution for Apache Hadoop (CDH) and Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP), giving customers the best of both worlds. This new product combines the best technologies from Cloudera and Hortonworks with new features and enhancements across the stack. CDP Private Cloud Base forms a comprehensive data platform that encompasses the entire data life cycle. This unified distribution is a scalable and customizable platform where you can securely run many types of data analytics workloads.
CDP Private Cloud Base can be a stand-alone data analytics platform. It also supports a hybrid or multicluster solution, where compute tasks can be separated from data storage, and where data can be accessed from remote clusters. In this case, the CDP Private Cloud Base cluster is deployed alongside CDP Private Cloud Data Services, a separate computing cluster running on a container platform that can be deployed with CDP Private Cloud Base. This approach provides a foundation for containerized applications by managing storage, table schema, authentication, authorization, and governance in CDP Private Cloud Base. It consists of various components such as Apache HDFS, Apache Hive 3, Apache HBase, and Apache Impala, along with many other components for specialized workloads. You can select any combination of these services to create clusters that address your business requirements and workloads.
Dell Technologies and Cloudera have designed and validated two separate architectures as the basis for deploying CDP Private Cloud Base; one on AMD-powered Dell infrastructure and one on Intel-powered Dell infrastructure. Both architectures are based on PowerEdge servers, PowerSwitch networking, and PowerScale storage and provide optimized configurations for deploying and operating CDP Private Cloud Base.
In summary, CDP Private Cloud Base is a complete data platform and stand-alone instance of CDP for the on-premises data center that can be deployed on a choice of optimized Dell infrastructure. CDP Private Cloud Base can also be deployed with the CDP Private Cloud Data Services cluster to form the complete CDP Private Cloud. Dell Technologies encourages CDH and HDP customers to upgrade to CDP Private Cloud Base for improved enterprise data management capabilities, new platform innovations, and the ability to add the Data Services cluster when needed.
