Cloud environments are increasingly becoming a popular deployment option for Hadoop. Enterprises can take advantage of the added flexibility and elasticity of the cloud for both long-running clusters, temporary deployments or for spikey workloads. However, as more and more users choose cloud environments for critical Hadoop workloads, they are often forced to compromise on key aspects of their data platform. Cloudera Director enables the full fidelity of the Enterprise Data Hub in the cloud, without compromises. Announced with the recent 5.2 release, Cloudera Director is the simple, reliable way to deploy and scale Hadoop in the cloud, while maintaining an open and neutral platform with enterprise-grade capabilities.
