Cloudera Employee

We are pleased to announce the release of Cloudera Director 2.5.0.


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 2.5.0


  • Automatic repair: Cloudera Director can now automatically repair instances that get terminated unexpectedly for clusters that have auto-repair enabled.
  • Significant improvement in resilience to unexpected instance terminations during bootstrap and grow operations. This improves support for AWS spot instances, as well as resilience of clusters using on-demand instances.
  • Cloudera Director can now configure and create external accounts in Cloudera Manager that include cloud provider login credentials in order to manage the use of additional cloud provider functionality, including object stores, such as Amazon S3 in AWS.
  • Cloudera Director now supports S3Guard, which guarantees a consistent view of data stored in Amazon S3.
  • Cloudera Director can now recognize changes made directly from the cloud provider console to provisioned instances such as instance type and AMI.
  • Cluster details page in the web UI now shows cluster history, displaying the most recent updates, including instances added, removed, or replaced in the cluster.
  • Logging improvements, including additional information about service and role configuration errors returned by the Cloudera Manager API.
  • A number of issues have been fixed. See Issues Fixed in Cloudera Director 2.5.0 for details.
