@SushantRao as @Shelton  mentioned we are talking about the open-source CDP distribution that we can download and install on bare-metal as per cloudera's commitment to open-source.

@SushantRao @Cloudera 

Can we have a response on this ?

We are planning for future deployments and this information will help us scope out and plan our architecture rather than pivoting to a different model.

Hi,

The source code for CDP Data Center is available under the appropriate Apache or AGPL licenses. The binaries for CDP Data Center are available with a subscription.

Note that there is a trial subscription available as well (https://www.cloudera.com/downloads/cdp-data-center-trial.html).

@SushantRao 

Can this be explained in plain english ?

I am a bit confused with the legal terms here. https://www.cloudera.com/products/faq.html

The document states both that a subscription will be required for access to cloudera-hosted components and that the source code will be open-source.

It states that the open-source license will come into effect around February 2020.

 

For the set of companies or developers who don't need maintenance, support , training and consultancy i.e they do not need subscription but want to deploy the software to production where will the open-source code be hosted ? on apache ?

So does it imply that the open-source binaries will NOT be cloudera-hosted and we have to wait till February 2020 ?

Or are you suggesting that a subscription is needed to access the "open-source" code from which the binaries would then need to be built ?

Re: CDP On-premise ?

Hi,

The source code is open source and is available based on the appropriate license.  For example, if you want the source code for Impala, which is an Apache project, you can get it from Apache.Org.

Not all products had been open source, so Cloudera has committed to making those open source by early next year (under AGPL license).

As for binaries, you need a subscription if you want those from Cloudera.  You can also compile the source code into binaries if you would prefer to do it yourself.

Does this make sense?
