CDP has recently been introduced to the market, and we all want to learn about it, so I decided to contribute a bit.


In this series of tutorials, I want to explain the basics of CDP Data Hub and provide some ease of automation. Indeed, the CDP control plane user interface provides a thorough workflow that automates the creation of main elements that ensures security, governance and scalability.

As depicted above, these main elements are:

  • CDP Environment: Cloud hosted (in your cloud) resources for CDP deployment
  • CDP Data Lake: Host of CDP SDX, the shared service layer providing all security and governance
  • CDP Data Hub cluster(s): where users run their workloads

Note: CDP offers a lot more than these basic elements, and a lot more ways to configure them; this is a 101 tutorial and will not address all that CDP has to offer. For more information, visit the CDP documentation or product page.


Instead, this tutorial series will teach you:

  1. How to create a CDP environment in AWS with minimal requirements
  2. How to create a datalake from an existing environment
  3. How to launch a CDP Data Hub cluster via CLI


Happy scripting!
