Need help automating an internal Cloudera cluster

Need help automating an internal Cloudera cluster

New Contributor

Hello,
I'm a novice and I don't know if you would be willing to help me. As part of a course for my studies, I need to automate the creation of an internal Cloudera cluster and I have almost no information. This would be with the CDH 5 version. The end result should retrieve the list of students on a db, and automatically create the cluster with those users, and each users should have their home directory on each node. If a user is added in this db, the cluster should automatically update itself. Then the disk space on each of the nodes should be able to be expanded as needed without having to reinstall them all. I've been looking at a lot of technology, and I'm completely lost, docker, kubernetes, ansible, terraform... Is what I need to do feasible, and if so, which tools should I look at? If someone among you could enlighten me I would be greatly grateful, thank you for reading me.
