Scope and goals

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

You can deploy a serverless NiFi flow using DataFlow Functions without the need to create a Data Lake and to perfom the corresponding cloud prerequisite steps. Following this end-to-end workflow, you will:

  1. Register for a 60-day trial for CDP Public Cloud Trial which will provision a tenant in CDP Public Cloud.

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

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

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