CDP Operational Database service in the public cloud

CDP Operational Database (COD) is an experience that runs on the Cloudera Data Platform (CDP). COD enables you to create a new operational database with a single click and auto-scales based on your workload.

COD enables you to create a cluster quickly and has auto-scaling to help you with your different workload requirements.

You can access COD from the Cloudera CDP console: The COD experience is a tile that you can click on your CDP console home screen.

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. It will auto-tune to improve performance over time and auto-heal to recover from operational issues.
