Virtual machines

CDP provisions Virtual machines (VMs) as part of the environment creation process (for Data Lake and FreeIPA) and for compute clusters.

Therefore, you should verify the limits on the number and type of VM instances in your Azure account to ensure that you are able to provision an environment and create clusters in CDP.

CDP supports Azure reserved VM instances; That is, If you have purchased reserved instances, CDP uses them automatically according to Azure policy.

CDP provides default Virtual Hard Drives (VHDs) and provisions managed images based on these VHDs. These managed images are used for Data Lake, FreeIPA, and compute cluster instances.

For a list of supported VM types, refer to Cloudera Data Platform (CDP) Public Cloud service rates.
