Cloudera on Azure

Gain deeper insights into your data by deploying Cloudera on Azure

Get new capabilities for your Cloudera workloads on Azure

  • Add new analytics, monitoring, and security capabilities to your production-grade workloads—including Azure Data Lake Store, Microsoft Power BI, and Azure Storage Service Encryption.
  • Grow, shrink, monitor, and manage your transient Cloudera Enterprise clusters using Cloudera Director, and use Cloudera Manager for persistent clusters.
  • Get started in just minutes with one-click deployment for proofs of concept (POCs), prototypes, and production-grade Cloudera Enterprise.

Elastic, independent sizing for compute, storage, and clusters

Hybrid and multi-cloud capabilities for business flexibility and data portability

Enterprise grade management, availability, security, and governance for big data workloads

Pay only for what you use on ad hoc, transient workloads

Get Azure agility and flexibility for your big data processing

Built on Apache Impala, Cloudera on Azure brings high-performance SQL analytics to big data:

  • Run reports and queries at any time, without needing data copies, extracts, or proprietary storage formats.
  • Control costs by automatically growing and shrinking your workloads as your needs change.
  • Transfer your security policies and manage workload history even after clusters have disappeared.

Increase data portability with hybrid deployment on Azure

Discover real-time customer insights more quickly and efficiently, and take advantage of fast, easy, and highly secure enterprise-grade self-service data science:

  • Provide your developers with the processing flexibility they need with linear performance scalability.
  • Choose where and how to deploy—on-premises, on the public cloud, or hybrid—and get to production repeatably and without recoding.
  • Get stream processing and real-time analytics on changing data.
  • Experiment faster using R, Python, or Scala with on-demand compute and secure access to Apache Spark and Apache Impala.

Pay only for what you use

Train machine learning models and get a foundational workload for big data and data pipeline development and operations:

  • Reduce the cost of short-lived workloads like ETL and data modeling.
  • Get access to more data and use the processing and analytics tools you already know.
  • Run experiments and provision the compute and storage resources you need without involving IT.

Get Azure management, security, and governance for big data workloads

Make multi-function data apps more secure, easier to develop, and less expensive to deploy with a powerful software framework:

  • Define and preserve the structure and business context of data for new applications and partner solutions.
  • Help protect sensitive data with consistent controls for transient and recurring workloads.
  • Get disaster recovery, an aggregated, single copy of all of your data, and manage your data from ingestion to purge.

Deep integration with Microsoft Azure

  • Expand your data processing capabilities with deep integration between Cloudera Enterprise Data Hub 5.12 and Azure Data Lake Store.
  • Grow or shrink clusters independent of data size.
  • Get role-based access control integration with Azure Active Directory (Azure AD).
  • No limits on account size or individual file size.
  • Take advantage of data encryption at rest by default.
