CDP Public Cloud: October 2022 Release Summary

Data Engineering

This release (1.17-h1) of the Cloudera Data Engineering Service on CDP Public Cloud now supports Apache Iceberg 0.14.

Support for Iceberg 0.14

When you upgrade to CDE 1.17-h1, ensure that you also upgrade to Iceberg 0.14. For more information, see Using Apache Iceberg in Cloudera Data Engineering. The following features are included with Iceberg 0.14:

  • MERGE operations allow for bulk updates and DELETES.
  • CDE Azure deployments are now able to leverage Iceberg for Lakehouse architecture.
  • [Technical Preview] Iceberg table format version 2 (v2) is the latest specification available and includes the following key updates:
    • UPDATE and DELETE operations follow the Iceberg format v2 row-level position delete specification and enforce snapshot isolation.
    • DELETES, UPDATES, and MERGE operations use the merge-on-read function by default. Merge-on-read is more efficient than the copy-on-write function because it does not rewrite file data.

Data Visualization

Cloudera Data Visualization (CDV) 7.0.4 was released on October 28, 2022 introducing the following changes:

  • Save selections made in edit mode setting is now available for all filter types. When unselected, filter values selected by the dashboard editor will not be the default in edit mode.
  • Improved the Expansion feature for cross tabulation visuals to more intuitively aggregate across row dimensions.
  • Cross Tabulation visual headers are now more readable, with tooltips for titles that are too long to display.
  • When selecting values for a visual filter, there is now a Select All for bulk selection of the shown filter values.
  • The build tab in Dashboard Designer can now be expanded to allow for greater readability.

Operational Database

Cloudera Operational Database (COD) 1.24 version supports fast SSD volume types, deploys strong meta servers for multiple regions, and provides two new COD CLI commands.

COD supports fast SSD based volume types for gateway nodes of HEAVY types

Cloudera Manager and monitoring systems require more resources than a regular deployment for big clusters with a large number of nodes. To support this, now COD supports a fast gp2 storage when you choose a gateway node of HEAVY type.

COD deploys strong meta servers for multiple regions for Multi-AZ

For Multi-AZ deployments, COD assigns the nodes to multiple regions when multiple strong meta servers exist in the deployment.

COD provides CDP CLI commands to set the HBase configuration values

COD now supports the CDP CLI commands update-hbase-configuration and describe-hbase-configuration to update and retrieve the HBase configuration values. For more information, see describe-hbase-configuration and update-hbase-configuration.
