Cloudera Enterprise 5.8 includes the latest release of Hue (3.10), the web UI that makes Apache Hadoop easier to use.
As part of Cloudera’s continuing investments in user experience and productivity, Cloudera Enterprise 5.8 includes a new release of Hue that makes several common tasks much easier. In the remainder of this post, we’ll provide a summary of the main improvements. (Hue 3.10 is also available for a quick try in one click on demo.gethue.com.)
New SQL Editor
Hue’s new code editor is a single-page app that is much simpler to use than the previous editor.
Released with CDH 5.8, Impala 2.6 brings solid performance improvements, particularly for clusters secured by Kerberos running BI workloads on Apache Hadoop.
Just a few months back, we showed you how Impala 2.5 delivered a 4x performance boost compared to Impala 2.3 for BI workloads on Hadoop via the introduction of several features like runtime filters. Here’s an update: Compared to two releases ago, Impala 2.6 delivers 12x better performance on secure workloads and continues this drumbeat of consistent performance improvement.
Getting hands-on with a multi-node cluster for self-learning or testing is even easier, now.
Last December, we introduced the Cloudera QuickStart Docker image to make it easier than ever before to explore Cloudera’s distributed data processing platform, including tools such as Apache Impala (incubating), Apache Spark, and Apache Solr. While the single-node getting-started image was well-received, we noted a large number of requests from the community for a multi-node CDH deployment via Docker.
Cloudera Enterprise 5.8 is now generally available (comprising CDH 5.8, Cloudera Manager 5.8, and Cloudera Navigator 2.7).
Cloudera is excited to announce the general availability of Cloudera Enterprise 5.8! Main highlights of this release include Impala read/write support on Amazon S3, a redesigned SQL query editor GUI, the expansion of role-based access control functionality to Cloudera Search, and the GA of Cloudera Navigator Optimizer to facilitate and optimize workload migrations.
This new release contains, among other things, support for usage-based billing, deployments to Microsoft Azure, and deployments across providers or regions.
