COD benefits

You deploy COD on a public cloud infrastructure that provides you with capabilities and flexibility that your on-premises hardware sometimes cannot offer. Using an existing CDP environment, you can quickly create an operational database with a single click. You can launch a database with the durable and consistent storage technology you may already be familiar with if you have used CDH or HDP, but with none of the legacy complexity.

Data access

Access data stored in COD with the Apache HBase Java API, the Phoenix JDBC driver, or the Phoenix thin client JDBC driver. You can also use other CDP components and experiences to help you with data ingress.

Cloudera Shared Data Experience (SDX) support

Cloudera SDX Data Lake provides COD with common security, auditing, and lineage capabilities used by other CDP experiences. You can pause and resume your COD instances for Research and Development environments to optimize cloud cost.


Auto-scaling means that the capabilities of your database can grow to automatically handle increased load against your database, and shrink automatically to reduce your costs without sacrificing availability. COD continuously monitors the services and periodically collects all the metrices. COD meets all the latency requirements by analyzing the collected metrices. COD also fine-tunes itself to improve performance over time.

COD monitors the underlying the services and automatically scales up or down the services to ensure that the latency and RPC metrices are met. COD enables you to create a cluster quickly and has auto-scaling to help you with your different workload requirements. For more information, see Auto-scaling in public cloud environments.


COD continuously monitors the clusters and if any failure scenario is encountered, COD automatically heals and repairs them. For example, COD monitors the instances on the cluster in a CDP environment, and if any instance is broken or missing, COD recreates the instances.
