Question

Does Cloudera have access to the customer data in Cloudera Altus Clusters?

Answer

 

Spoiler
 

No.  Cloudera Altus clusters are setup with the expectation that data will reside on the cloud provider's object storage (AWS S3, Azure ADLS).  When data resides in this object storage (which exists inside a customer account within AWS or Azure), the Cloudera Altus service does not have access to this data.
