CDH 5 Search Guide

Cloudera Search integrates with CDH and uses Apache Solr to provide scalable and reliable search services. Search makes these services available to end-users through tools that use familiar access and querying models.

  • Search integrates with the existing CDH ecosystem, meaning data can be stored, shared, and accessed using the various solutions included with CDH. This also avoids data silos and minimizes expensive data movement.
  • Search provides access to data stored in CDH without requiring the Java skills required for MapReduce jobs or the SQL skill required for Impala queries.
  • Search returns results typically within seconds, rather than the minutes or more that are often required for MapReduce jobs to complete.
  • Search allows customizing what information is indexed. Indexes can optimize for completeness, size, or types data that are of interest.
