Creating your first Virtual Warehouse

After you activate an environment in Cloudera Data Warehouse (CDW), a default Database Catalog is automatically created. After the Database Catalog is in the running state, you can create Virtual Warehouses.

You can create Hive, Impala, or Impala Virtual Warehouses with Unified Analytics mode enabled.
  1. Log in to the data Warehouse service as DWAdmin.
  2. On the Overview page, click Create Virtual Warehouse.
    The New Virtual Warehouse modal screen is displayed.
  3. Specify a name for your Virtual Warehouse, select the type, specify a size and click Create.
    To create a first test Virtual Warehouse, you can proceed with the default values. For fine-tuning, sizing, configuring, creating, and upgrading Virtual Warehouses, see Managing Virtual Warehouses.
You can submit workloads and run queries using Hue. You can also use SQL clients such as beeline, impala-shell, and so on to submit workloads after you connect them to your Virtual Warehouses.
