What’s New With Cloudera Enterprise 6.1.0

Krishna Maheshwari announces Cloudera Enterprise 6.1.0:

Platform Support & Security
Cloudera now supports deploying with OpenJDK 8 in addition to Oracle’s JDK. With this release, we also support AWS CloudHSM for HDFS encryption-at-rest.
As customers are increasingly implementing security, we are changing defaults to be secure in order to reduce setup complexity and configuration misses. As a part of this release, several defaults in Kafka, Impala, Sqoop, and Flume have been changed to be more secure and added BDR replication from insecure to secure (Kerberized) clusters to ease the transition to secure clusters.

There are several improvements and new features here worth checking out.
