What Will You Try?

Modern Hadoop has evolved beyond simple storage and batch processing to enable you to interact with your data in familiar ways – such as through SQL, with a search box, or using your favorite programming language – and to build sophisticated workflows and applications combining these.

  1. TransformLet’s start simple. Process some data with Apache Pig.
  2. Query Query Hadoop interactively just like a database, using standard SQL, with Impala.
  3. Search Experience the power of faceted search and navigation to explore your data with Cloudera Search.
  4. Orchestrate Connect the dots. Create and manage workflows with the Oozie workflow designer.


The Fine Print

While in beta the environment is read-only and your sessions will last for three hours at a time. To work with your own data, you can download and install the Cloudera QuickStart VM.
