[ANNOUNCE] Cloudera Director 2.8.0 Released

We are pleased to announce the release of Cloudera Director 2.8.0.


Cloudera Director provides a simple, reliable, enterprise-grade way to deploy, scale, and manage Apache Hadoop in the cloud of your choice. Cloudera Director is available as a free download for use with Cloudera Express and is fully supported with Cloudera Enterprise.


What's New in Cloudera Director 2.8.0


  • Simple cluster setup
  • Usability
  • Azure plugin improvements
  • The command line client's standalone functionality has been deprecated. The standalone CLI commands will be removed in a future release (bootstrap, status, terminate, update, and validate), and the Cloudera Director client will be used only for command line interactions with a Cloudera Director server. When the validate command is removed, a new CLI command will be provided for validating a configuration file.
