Creating your first Virtual Warehouse on public cloud environments

This topic describes the end-to-end workflow of creating a Virtual Warehouse in Cloudera Data Warehouse (CDW) service.

Before you can create a Virtual Warehouse in CDW service, you must have completed the following tasks:

  1. Activate the environment that uses the Data Lake you want to use for the CDW Database Catalog. See Activating environments.
  2. Add a new Database Catalog. See Adding a new Database Catalog.
  3. Add a new Virtual Warehouse. See Adding a new Virtual Warehouse.
Now you have a Virtual Warehouse that you can start executing workloads against. For more information about tuning, querying, and modifying the Virtual Warehouse, see the topics linked to at the bottom of this page.
