Getting started in CDW
In Cloudera Data Warehouse (CDW), you can deploy and administer cloud data warehousing. You can move workloads to the cloud securely and manage user access to warehouse data, or just parts of the data, through Apache Ranger fine-grained control. You learn how to get started in CDW.
As CDW administrator, you need privileges to access a CDP environment. As a CDW user, you need privileges to access warehouse data as described in the subtopics, "Prerequisites" and "Granting CDP users and groups access" below.
