Cloudera Employee

Announcing Cloudera Enterprise 6.3.3


We are pleased to announce the release of Cloudera Enterprise 6.3.3, the world’s leading data platform for machine learning and analytics, optimized for the cloud.


This maintenance release includes all the features and capabilities of the previous minor release (Cloudera Enterprise 6.3) with the addition of numerous  important bug fixes.  Also note the current list of known issues with Cloudera Enterprise 6.  We also encourage you to review the new Upgrade Guide that now includes the ability to create customized upgrade instructions based on your specific environment and upgrade path.


New Features & Capabilities


  • Cloudera Enterprise 6.3.3 now supports running on RedHat Enterprise Linux 7.7 and CentOS 7.7
  • Cloudera Manager provides new tuning options to increase the scalability of monitoring services for large CDH deployments


Important Note About Installation


Beginning with Cloudera Manager 6.3.3 and CDH 6.3.3, downloading the software will require a valid Cloudera Enterprise license file and/or a username and password obtained from Cloudera.  All Cloudera Manager package, CDH parcel and CDH package repositories now require authentication with valid credentials to access any version labeled 6.3.3 or higher. If you have a valid Cloudera Enterprise or CDP license key, you can generate the download credentials on the CDH download page.  For more information on using these credentials, see the documentation below.


Important Note About Cloudera Express


Beginning with release 6.3.3, Cloudera Express has been discontinued and is no longer available. Upgrades to Cloudera Manager 6.3.3 or CDH 6.3.3 and higher are not supported while running Cloudera Express.  A valid Cloudera Enterprise or CDP license must be in place before upgrading to Cloudera Manager 6.3.3 or 7.x, or the upgrade will not be completed. This also applies to trial installations of Cloudera Enterprise and CDP Data Center.


Downgrading from Cloudera Enterprise to Cloudera Express is also no longer supported in Cloudera Manager 6.3.3 and later. An expired Cloudera Enterprise or CDP license, or an expired trial license will disable the Cloudera Manager UI until a valid Cloudera Enterprise or CDP  license key is provided.
