The Azure Data Lake (ADL) vision from the beginning has been to transform business data into intelligence by providing analytics on any data at cloud scale. ADL enterprise customers gain insights on their business data using a wide range of tools and platforms. Today’s release of Cloudera Enterprise 5.11 brings another very valuable and widely-used Hadoop computation platform to the set of platforms that can leverage ADLS. No matter what big data analytics platform you choose, Azure Data Lake Store provides a single high throughput enterprise-scale hierarchical file system data lake repository for big data.
Anyone with an Azure subscription can now deploy Cloudera clusters with ADLS. To get started, you can use the Cloudera Enterprise Data Hub template or the Cloudera Director template on Azure Marketplace to create a Cloudera cluster. Once the cluster is up, see here for more information on how to set up your Cloudera cluster with ADLS today!
That’s an interesting development.
