Hopefully you wrote “Cloudera 3.7” in pencil on your to-do list because the Dell Crowbar team has moved to CHD4 & Cloudera Enterprise 4.0. This aligns with the Cloudera GA announcement on Tuesday 6/5 and continues our drive keep Crowbar deployments both fresh and spicy.
With the GA drop, the Crowbar Cloudera Barclamps are effectively at release candidate state (ISO). The Cloudera Barclamps include a freemium version of Cloudera Enterprise 4 that supports up to 50 nodes.
I’m excited about this release because it addresses concerns around fault tolerance, multi-tenant and upgrade.
These tools are solving real world problems ranging from data archival, ad hoc analysis and click stream analysis. We’ve invested a lot of Crowbar development effort in making it fast and easy to build a Hadoop cluster. Now, Cloudera makes it even easier to manage and maintain.
