Launch Cloudbreak from an Azure Resource Manager (ARM) template by using the following steps. This is the quickstart deployment option.

As of December 31, 2021, Cloudbreak reached end of support. For more information, see Support lifecycle policy. Cloudera recommends that you migrate your workloads to CDP Public Cloud.

    Parameter Description
    Subscription Select which existing subscription you want to use.
    Resource group Select an existing resource group or create a new one by selecting Create new and entering a name for your new resource group. Cloudbreak resources will later be accessible in that chosen resource group.
    Location Select an Azure region in which you want to deploy Cloudbreak.
    Parameter Description
    Vm Size Select virtual machine instance type to use for the Cloudbreak instance. The minimum instance type suitable for Cloudbreak is Standard_DS3. The minimum requirements are 16GB RAM, 40GB disk, 4 cores.
    Admin Username Create an admin login that you will use to log in to the Cloudbreak web UI. Must be a valid email address. By default, admin@example.com is used but you should change it to your email address.
    Admin User Password Password for the admin login. Must be at least 8 characters containing letters, numbers, and symbols.

    • will allow access from through
    • ‘Internet’ will allow access from all. This is not a secure option but you can use it if you are just getting started and are not planning to have the instance on for a longer period.
    • (Advanced) ‘VirtualNetwork’ will allow access from the address space of the Virtual Network.
    • (Advanced) ‘AzureLoadBalancer’ will allow access from the address space of the load balancer.
