[Announce] Cloudera Altus is now available

[ Edited ]

Dear Cloudera User,


We are excited to announce the General Availability (GA) release of Cloudera Altus.  Cloudera Altus is a platform-as-a-service offering that makes it dramatically easier and more cost-effective to run Cloudera in the cloud. The initial service - available today - targets foundational data engineering workloads and will allow you to quickly and easily spin up Cloudera clusters and run your data pipelines.


Why Cloudera Altus:

  • The platform-as-a-service deployment model eliminates the complexity and overhead associated with cloud and cluster operations for the end user.
  • Instead, users can quickly launch data engineering jobs on-demand and focus on their workloads rather than cluster operations.
  • Altus leverages the trusted, enterprise-grade Cloudera distribution, allowing easy migration of on-prem workloads to and from the cloud with minimal risk.
  • Altus provides interoperable workflows between the data engineering offering and Cloudera’s machine learning, BI and real-time applications, so that you can easily run full data pipelines with Altus and the Cloudera platform in the cloud

Altus is available today on AWS. Altus documentation can be found at this link. More information on Altus can be found on our engineering and VISION blogs.


As always, we are happy to hear your feedback. Please post your comments and suggestions in our community forums.
