We are excited to announce the immediate availability of the Cloudbreak 2.4 GA release. This release includes many enhancements to help the enterprise deploy and run Hortonworks platforms in the cloud. Cloudbreak puts your company well on its way to harness the agility of cloud for big data workloads.
New UI / UX: All major options are easily accessible from the collapsible navigation menu. All UI options and wizards are redesigned in order to make cluster creation and management more intuitive.
New CLI: The new CLI tool was introduced to ease automation. To download the CLI, select Download CLI from the navigation panel.
Enable Kerberos: Kerberos has long been the foundational technology for user authentication with Apache Hadoop and the Hortonworks Data Platform. Cloudbreak exposes both basic and advanced options to enable Kerberos security in your clusters.
Custom Images: Out of the box, Cloudbreak leverages default images as the basis for creating the cluster infrastructure. This is great for the “first time user” experience but most enterprises have explicit machine and image standards (e.g. OS hardening, library installs, tooling, audit & logging setup, etc). Cloudbreak exposes a new option for you to “bring your own image” that can be tailored to meet your enterprise infrastructure requirements.
That’s just the tip of the iceberg. Check out the following resources to learn more about this new Cloudbreak release:
