Deploying applications on Cloudera Operational Database

The edge node is a dedicated Data Hub cluster that enables you to communicate with your Cloudera Operational Database (COD) instance and your applications. You can deploy a cluster that works as an edge node to access your COD instance. Deploy the edge node cluster in the same environment as the COD instance to ensure that the security groups and data ingress rules that apply to the COD instance must also apply to the edge node cluster.

  1. From the Cloudera Management Console, click Data Hub Clusters.
  2. Click Create Data Hub.
  3. In the Selected Environment with running Data Lake drop-down list, select the same environment used by your COD instance.
  4. Select the Cluster Definition.
  5. In the Cluster Definition drop-down list, select the [***RUNTIME VERSION***] COD Edge Node for [***CLOUD PROVIDER NAME***].
    For example, select the 7.2.10 COD Edge Node for AWS cluster template.
  6. In the Cluster Name field, provide a cluster name that you can identify later as an edge node of a specific COD instance.
  7. Click Provision Cluster.

After you deploy the edge node, you can run your applications on this edge node using the Client connectivity information. See how to compile applications for COD in Compile an application for your database.
