Cloudera Operational Database service in the public cloud

Cloudera Operational Database (COD) is a service 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.

Cloudera Operational Database is a scale-out, autonomous database powered by Apache HBase and Apache Phoenix. You can use COD for your low-latency and high-throughput use cases with the same storage and access layers that you are familiar with using in CDH and HDP.

Cloudera Operational Database and Cloudera SDX (Shared Data Experience) integration enable you to make use of the common security, auditing, and lineage features that are used by other CDP experiences. COD instances can be paused and resumed for R&D environments enabling you to optimize cost.

COD has the same Cloudera Runtime components that are present in the Operational Database Data Hub cluster template, but COD enables you to create a cluster quickly and supports auto-scaling to help you with a varied set of workload requirements.

COD is deployed 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. COD helps you to launch a database with the durable and consistent storage technology that you are already familiar with, but with none of the legacy complexity. You can access the database using the HBase Java API, the Phoenix JDBC driver, or the Phoenix Thin-Client JDBC driver.

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.
