I am interested to know the CDF licensing model is the same as HDF?
is the CDF product is free and buy the support like HDF?
whats the future state of HDF, I see nifi 1.9 is the latest available and any further release will be available in HDF in the future ?

Starting September 2019, a subscription agreement will be required to access Cloudera products and maintenance releases including the components under CDF (although you can still do a free trial).
HDF in now CDF. CDF includes Cloudera Flow Management (CFM) which includes Apache Nifi. The current version of CFM 1.0.1. This includes Apache Nifi 1.9.0.
I hope that helps.

@StevenOD even I am unable to download CFM , so this is no more opensource?
seems lots of information is lagging on the HDF part too. Appreciate if you can provide any references about HDF and its future state
You must be a CFM customer to access these downloads. If you believe you should have this entitlement then please reach out to support or your customer service representative.

Did you try the 'Free Trial' link?
Here is the link to CDF managed under Ambari which I think is what you are looking for:
Please check the Hortonworks Support Policy for the future state of HDP and HDF.

Cloudera is a 100% open-source company as per our commitment in this blog post: Our Commitment to Open Source Software but we have changed our licensing policy as described in this Cloudera Licensing Policy FAQs.
If you review the policy FAQs you will see that moving forward you will need a subscription agreement with Cloudera to access the distribution of our software.
Yes, the Cloudera Data Platform (CDP) is available in the Cloud. Currently, it is available in both AWS and Azure.
