Cloudera is proud to announce that Cloudera Enterprise 5.10 is now generally available (GA). The highlights of this release include the GA of the new columnar storage engine Apache Kudu, improved cloud performance and cost-optimizations, and cloud-native data governance for Amazon S3.
As usual, there are also a number of quality enhancements and bug fixes (learn more about our multi-dimensional hardening/QA process) and other improvements across the stack. Here is a partial list of what’s included (see the Release Notes for a full list):
In Part 1 of the blog, we covered all the prerequisites needed to deploy a CDH cluster on the Microsoft Azure cloud platform. In Part 2, we will cover the resources required on the Azure platform and actually deploy a cluster with Cloudera Director.
Cloudera Director Use Case
Cloudera Director simplifies cluster creation and lessen the time to an operational cluster on the cloud. It’s a great tool for running POCs in your organization.

Learn how to use Cloudera Director, Microsoft Active Directory (AD DS, AD CS, AD DNS), SAMBA, and SSSD to deploy a secure EDH cluster for workloads in the public cloud.
Authenticating users in Apache Hadoop is the first line of security we recommend. Like most, if not all RDBMS, a user is provided with a username and a password to validate their identity. This is a requirement to access any data managed by those systems.
As many of us know, data in HDFS is stored in DataNodes, and HDFS can tolerate DataNode failures by replicating the same data to multiple DataNodes. But exactly what happens if some DataNodes’ disks are failing? This blog post explains how some of the background work is done on the DataNodes to help HDFS to manage its data across multiple DataNodes for fault tolerance. Particularly, we will explain block scanner, volume scanner,
