  • Edition

  • Edition Trial

    The Edition Trial is a free 60-day trial that does not require a license file. When the 60-day trial period expires, you will no longer be able to access the Cloudera Manager Admin console, though your clusters and data remain intact. You can obtain a license to regain access to the Admin Console. To obtain a license, fill in the Contact Us form or call 866-843-7207.

    You can use a trial license only once; when the 60-day trial period expires or you have ended the trial, you cannot restart the trial.
