Announcing: Cloudera Search 1.0, Cloudera Manager 4.7, Cloudera Navigator 1.1 and CDH4.4

Dear Search, Cloudera Manager, and CDH users,

 

We are pleased to announce the general availability of Cloudera Search 1.0 along with the Cloudera Manager 4.7, Cloudera Navigator 1.1, and CDH4.4.0 releases.

 

Cloudera Search 1.0

After three months of public beta, and months of private beta before that, we are proud to present the general availability of Cloudera Search. We have now contributed back our innovation and IP around integration of Apache Solr and Apache Lucene with Cloudera’s Distribution including Apache Hadoop (CDH) back into the various projects, and completed a lot of hardening, integration, simplification, and packaging work.

 

Our Cloudera team has impressively delivered a number of highly attractive and valuable platform integrations:

 

  • Batch indexing via Apache MapReduce

  • Near real time indexing at ingest via Apache Flume and Apache HBase

  • Cloudera Manager integration for better production visibility and monitoring

  • SolrCloud deployment capabilities on Apache HDFS (index creation, storage, and serving from HDFS)

  • Cluster level access control (Kerberos authentication and impersonation)

  • Simplified data preparation for indexing across workloads via Cloudera Morphlines

  • Simple and configurable search application in Hue

  • Index aliasing -- ability to handle sliding window data through index mapping

  • GoLive feature -- ability to start serving indexes generated by MapReduce to running Solr services on the cluster, as they become readily available

  • Solr/CDH platform packaging 

And much more…

 

Cloudera Search is supported on both CDH4.4 and CDH4.3 and can be deployed with Cloudera Manager 4.7.

 

Getting started with Cloudera Search:

  • Make sure you have CDH4.4 installed (CDH4.3 is also supported, but 4.4 is recommended).  To download CDH4.4, go to the Downloads page.

  • For simplicity, we recommend using Cloudera Manager 4.7 to install and deploy Cloudera Search. You can find links to the documentation, download, and more information on the Downloads page.
