June 2022

This release of the Data Hub service introduces new features.

Customer managed encryption keys on AWS (June 7, 2022)

Previously, Data Hub EBS encryption could be configured only as part of Data Hub creation. Now you can also configure encryption during environment registration and all EBS volumes and RDS database and used by the Data Hubs running in that environment will be encrypted. It is still possible to add a CMK during Data Hub creation, overwriting the encryption key provided during environment registration for that Data Hub. For more information, refer to Adding a customer managed encryption key to a CDP environment running on AWS and Configuring encryption for Data Hub's EBS volumes on AWS.

Cluster template overrides (June 7, 2022)

As an alternative to creating a custom template, you can specify custom configurations that override or append the properties (service and role configs) in a built-in or custom Data Hub template. These configurations are saved as a shared resource called “cluster template overrides,” and can be used and re-used across Data Hub clusters in different environments.

For more information, see Cluster template overrides.

Creating multi-AZ Data Hubs on AWS (June 9, 2022)

By default, CDP provisions Data Hubs in a single AWS availability zone (AZ), but you can optionally choose to deploy them across multiple availability zones (multi-AZ). For more information, see Creating a multi-AZ Data Hub on AWS.

Multi-AZ deployments do not use a CloudFormation template for VM creation. Neither autoscaling groups or launch templates are created. The cluster resources are managed individually using AWS native components (for example, EC2 instances).

Customer managed encryption keys on GCP (June 16, 2022)

By default, a Google-managed encryption key is used to encrypt disks and Cloud SQL instances used by Data Hub clusters, but you can optionally configure CDP to use a customer-managed encryption key (CMEK) instead. This can only be configured during CDP environment registration using CDP CLI. For more information, refer to Adding a customer managed encryption key for GCP.

Data Engineering HA template for Azure (June 22, 2022)

The Data Engineering HA template for Azure is now GA. For more information see Data Engineering clusters (Azure).

New option to delete attached volumes during Data Hub repair (June 29, 2022)

When you initiate a repair from the Data Hub Hardware tab, you have the option to delete any volumes attached to the instance. For more information see Performing manual repair.
