Dear CDH and Cloudera Manager Users,



We are pleased to announce the release of Cloudera Director 1.1.

  • Support for demand-based shrinking of clusters

  • Integration with Amazon RDS to enable end-to-end setup of clusters as well as related databases

  • Native client bindings for Director API in Java and Python

  • Overall improvements to Director User Interface, usability, and documentation
