Cloudera GPU Support

Hi All,


I'm curious - does anyone here have any experience with GPU accelerated Cloudera or even if its supported?  I've been reading around and noticed a number of teams improving CPU bound jobs by utilising Nvidea's CUDA and offloading the calculations to the GPU when using Hadoop.  I'm looking for people to just share their $0.02 on "yes, this worked for us and here is how to go about it" or "no this is a no go".


Any thoughts or ideas?

Hey Chris, 


Officially CDH does not support GPU offloading, however there are some JIRA's that have been created to explore/brainstorm these possabilities. I have included them below:


I would also keep an eye on our Engineering Blog to see if there have been any new update on new use cases regarding this.

Hi Jordan,


You mentioned that officially CDH does not support GPU offloading, but does CDH support installation on GPU nodes?
