CDP Private Cloud

CDP Private Cloud is built for hybrid cloud, seamlessly connecting on-premises environments to public clouds with consistent, built-in security and governance. The platform extends cloud-native speed, scale, and economics for the connected data lifecycle.

To see CDP Private Cloud in action, start a trial today. Or start your upgrade to CDP Private Cloud with our step-by-step CDP Upgrade Guide. 

CDP Public Cloud

Create and manage secure data lakes, self-service analytics, and machine learning services without installing and managing the data platform software.

CDP Public Cloud services are managed by Cloudera, but unlike other public cloud services, your data will always remain under your control in your VPC. CDP runs on AWS and Azure, with Google Cloud Platform coming soon.

What's New in Private Cloud Base

Latest Update

CDP Private Cloud Base 7.1.7 SP1

CDP Private Cloud Base 7.1.7 Service Pack 1 (SP1) is now generally available, and with it Cloudera's first Long Term Supported (LTS) version. See community announcement here for what's included in SP1.  Customers can upgrade with confidence to the LTS release knowing it will be supported till August 2025.

CDP Private Cloud 1.3.1

With Private Cloud 1.3.1, Cloudera addresses the top two requests from customers looking to adopt our next-generation on-premises platform:

Streamline the installation and management of the container orchestration layer

Include Data Engineering as a crucial workload to complement CDW and CML

With the Embedded Container Services (ECS), customers get the ‘easy-button’ installation of CDP Private Cloud Data Services directly on bare metal or virtual machines.  And with Cloudera Data Engineering, they can now address a much wider range of use cases.
