Cloudera Manager 5 / CDH 5 end of life

New Contributor

I manage multiple 100+ node hadoop clusters using Cloudera Manager 5 Express. Since this is not going to be possible with CM6 (a commercial license will be required), I was wondering when will the CDH5/CM5 support end (bug fixes, security fixes for non-paying users). I couldn't find this info anywhere on Cloudera's web. Thanks!

Thanks Bhuv!

 

The page only mentions Cloudera Enterprise, so I would like to know whether any future new CDH 5.x release with security/bug fixes (if any comes out) will be also available for non-enterprise users.

@Davey

You can always try any new General availability release till Cloudera trial ends.

Cheers!

I am using Cloudera Express 5.12.0 in a test environment.
I want to upgrade to a later release.
How do we do this?
All of the Cloudera documentation seems to have removed any mention of Express edition.
Is there no longer a free option?
If there is where is it?

@bob_the_web,

 

There is only one Cloudera Manager binary.  Without a license, the limited features of Express are available.  To unlock the Enterprise features, a trial or purchased license is required.
