Optimize Your Analytics With Workload-Aware Autoscaling

Manish Maheshwari, Director, Product Management

Keeping track of what runs where on which clusters, how it performs, and how or whether it could perform better is a big undertaking. Or rather, it used to be, but not anymore. Cloudera is proud to reveal its first applied observability solution that helps you understand and optimize your Cloudera Data Platform deployments across your data lakehouse.

Workload-Aware Autoscaling delivers a brand new compute autoscaling capability that allows your virtual data warehouse to be sized and used for diverse data storage and analytical workloads. This enables dynamically and on-demand, according to CPU and memory utilization, and effective parallelism required to deliver results for your business quickly.

Key takeaways:

  • Efficient SLA and cost-bound autoscaling and multithreading 

  • Effective and efficient hardware utilization of cloud provider compute instances 

  • Diverse workload management in a single VW to improve usability and workload management
