- Using JVM debugger with Apache Spark jobs
Learn how to connect a JVM debugger remotely to Spark jobs (driver/executor).
- Using Custom Spark Runtime Docker Images via API/CLI
Learn how to run Spark jobs using custom Spark runtime Docker images via API/CLI.
- CDE In-place Upgrades
Cloudera Data Engineering (CDE) supports upgrades from two versions prior to the latest available version.
- Azure Spot instances for Virtual Warehouses
Cloudera Data Warehouse (CDW) now supports using Azure spot instances for Virtual Warehouses to reduce costs if you do not need fault tolerance.
- Reserving nodes for auto-scaling
To speed up Virtual Warehouse startup and autoscaling, keep some number of compute instances on standby. You configure extra buffer nodes to stand by, ready to join a new compute or autoscaled cluster.
- Integrating CDP Data Catalog with AWS Glue Data Catalog
While using AWS Glue in Data Catalog, you will be able to experience a complete snapshot metadata view, along with other visible attributes that can power your data governance capabilities.
- Navigating to tables and databases in Hue using Data Catalog
The integration between Data Catalog and Cloudera Data Warehouse (CDW) service provides a direct web link to the Hue instance from the Data Catalog web UI, making it easy to navigate across services.
- Support for CDP Private Cloud Base clusters in Data Catalog
Data Catalog now supports discovering and profiling assets that reside in CDP Private Cloud Base clusters.
- Supporting High Availability for Profiler services
The Data Catalog profiler services is now supported by enabling the High Availability (HA) feature.
- Transitioning Profiler Manager Service into SDX
The Profiler Manager Service is moved to the SDX infrastructure.
- Using the Download CSV option
Using the selected data lake, the search result for the current query can be downloaded.
- Model Registry
Cloudera Machine Learning now features Model Registry which stores and manages machine learning models and associated metadata.
- Private Cluster Support
Private Clusters provide a simple way to create a secure cluster, where the API server and the workloads themselves only rely on private IP addresses that are not accessible from the internet.
- CMK Encryption on AWS
Cloudera Machine Learning on AWS is now able to use a Customer Master Key (CMK) to encrypt data.
- Retry Workspace Installation
When Workspace Provisioning experiences a problem, it is easy to restart the provisioning process from the point where it stopped.
- Rolling Data Lake Upgrades
A Data Lake rolling upgrade allows you to upgrade the Data Lake Runtime and OS without stopping attached Data Hubs or Data Services.
- GCS Fine-Grained Access Control
Register a GCP environment with Ranger Authorization Service (RAZ) enabled to allow Google Cloud Storage (GCS) users to use fine-grained access policies and audit capabilities available in Apache Ranger.
- Cluster Orchestrator Component Password Rotation
If required, you can use the CDP CLI to manually rotate the cluster orchestrator component password.
- Disabling S3Guard in an Existing CDP Environment
You may need to disable S3Guard when upgrading your Data Lakes or Data Hubs. Use the Beta CDP CLI to disable S3Guard in an existing CDP environment.
- Azure VM Encryption at Host
You can optionally enable encryption at host for Data Lake, FreeIPA, and Data Hubs. Currently, you need to enable it individually for each Virtual Machine (VM) on Azure Portal.
- New UI for adding a CDP Private Cloud Base cluster
Register a CDP Private Cloud Base cluster as a classic cluster using Cloudera Manager and Knox endpoints so that you can use this cluster in Replication Manager and Data Catalog services.
- Public Endpoint Access Gateway for GCP
You can enable Public Endpoint Access Gateway for GCP during GCP environment registration after enabling Cluster Connectivity Manager (CCM). Once activated, the gateway will be used for the Data Lake and all the Data Hubs within the environment.
- Snapshot Policies in Replication Manager
You can create HDFS and HBase snapshot policies in Replication Manager to schedule taking snapshots of snapshottable HDFS directories and HBase tables at regular intervals. An HDFS directory is snapshottable after it has been enabled for snapshots, or because a parent directory is enabled for snapshots in Cloudera Manager.
