Cluster deployment options

You have two basic options when creating a cluster: (1) create a cluster from one of the default or custom cluster definition, or (2) create a custom cluster.

Cluster definitions

Data Hub includes a set of prescriptive cluster definitions that can be used to quickly provision clusters for common use cases. These default cluster definitions include prescriptive options related to compute instance types and storage options.

We recommend that you start by reviewing these definitions. If you conclude that they do not match your requirements, you can customize them and then save them as custom cluster definitions.

Custom deployment

Use the custom cluster deployment option if you would like to select specific Cloudera Runtime components for your cluster.

Advanced options

The cluster wizard includes a set of advanced options that can be optionally configured. Some of these options require additional configuration prior to cluster creation, so if you would like to use these options, read the cluster planning documentation first.
