Is Cloudera Kafka (CDK) free?

We are interested in using CDK instead of the base Apache version for its additional operation features.  However, I cannot find any info about its pricing and licensing terms - required by my corporate legal.  Nothing on CDK documentation.  The main Cloudera product and download pages seem to have been redesigned, and do not even provide links to the individual component distros like Spark 2 and Kafka.  Pricing is also changed to base on high-level "solutions" instead of individual software products.

 

Since CDK is essentially CM+ZooKeeper+Kafka in a parcel, would it be licensed on the same basis as base CDH?  I believe (the simpler) Cloudera Spark 2 is indeed free, but cannot find official info on that, either.  Can the Cloudera corporate folks help answer?

 

Thanks,

Miles Yao

Hi Eric:

 

Thanks for your explanation.

 

Would you be able to point us to the formal licensing statements stating the same?  It would be required by our corporate to approve CDK (and CDS2 for that matter) for production use.
