Scope and goals

Use this guide if you want to try to deploy your first serverless NiFi flow using DataFlow Functions, without the need to create a Data Lake and to perfom the corresponding cloud prerequisite steps.

It walkes you through the process of going from zero – no CDP Public Cloud tenant and no data flow – to your first serverless NiFi flow on AWS Lambda in under 30 minutes without any Cloudera Sales or technical assistance.

This end-to-end workflow helps you to:
  • Register for a 60-day trial for CDP Public Cloud Trial which will provision a tenant in CDP Public Cloud.

  • Implement a data distribution use case on a local development workstation using Apache NiFi.

  • Register the NiFi flow in Cloudera DataFlow Service as a DataFlow function.

  • Deploy the DataFlow function in serverless mode using AWS Lambda.
