Cloudera Data Platform

Unlock the potential of private and  public clouds with the only hybrid data platform for modern data architectures with data anywhere.


The ultimate flexibility in data management and data analytics.

Cloudera Data Platform (CDP) is a hybrid data platform designed for unmatched freedom to choose—any cloud, any analytics, any data.

CDP delivers faster and easier data management and data analytics for data anywhere, with optimal performance, scalability, and security.

With CDP you get the value of CDP Private Cloud and CDP Public Cloud for faster time to value and increased IT control.

Get value from all your data with a unified data fabric, open data lakehouse, & scalable data mesh

Cloudera Data Platform provides the freedom to securely move applications, data, and users bi-directionally between the data center and multiple data clouds, regardless of where your data lives. All thanks to modern data architectures:

  • A unified data fabric centrally orchestrates disparate data sources intelligently and securely across multiple clouds and on premises
  • An open data lakehouse enables multi-function analytics on both streaming and stored data in a cloud-native object store across hybrid multi-cloud
  • A scalable data mesh helps eliminate data silos by distributing ownership to cross-functional teams while maintaining a common data infrastructure

Designed to handle complexity automatically—so you don't have to

  • Multi-Cloud & On Premises
  • Open & Scalable
  • Portable Data Analytics
  • Unified Security

Multi-cloud & on premises

Extend powerful AI-powered data applications across your business—faster, easier, and more reliably.

A singular focus on cloud overlooks the vast amount of data residing on private clouds. CDP combines the data management, analytics, and transactional and data science services of public and private clouds.

Only Cloudera has the power to span multi-cloud and on premises with a hybrid data platform that delivers cloud-native data analytics across the full data lifecycle—data distribution, data engineering, data warehousing, transactional data, streaming data, data science, and machine learning—with a consistent experience that’s portable across infrastructures.

Open & scalable

Open data fabrics, data lakehouses, and data meshes with data anywhere at scale.

Reap the rewards of CDP’s open-source pedigree and interoperability to address existing critical issues as well as anticipate future needs such as new clouds, new data types, and data services. 

Organizations routinely use CDP to secure, manage, and analyze petabytes of structured and unstructured data with scalable data mesh, a feat unmatched in the industry. And CDP delivers the world’s only open data lakehouse powered by Apache Iceberg, which lets you use CDP analytics and data management or the analytic tool of your choice thanks to open cloud-native storage formats. CDP in AWS stores its data in S3, CDP in Azure stores its data in ADLS, and CDP in Google stores its data in GCS.

Portable data analytics

Moving data and applications among clouds or back on premises as business conditions change is an imperative.

Implementing a new use case requires more than a point solution that only runs in the cloud. CDP’s unified platform enables portable, interoperable data analytics for the full data lifecycle and distributed data management running on public clouds, on premises, and at the edge.

Overarching platform services handle security, governance, metadata, replication, and automation, easing deployment across domains and delivering a consistent self-service user experience across clouds without refactoring or redevelopment.

Unified security

Meet the compliance needs of even the most regulated industries with a unified data fabric. 

Consistent policy-based controls across private and public clouds are required for both hybrid success and the portability of data and services. A unified data fabric, powered by Cloudera SDX, orchestrates all your disparate data sources intelligently and securely, maintaining lineage across all your analytics.

SDX facilitates self-service access for business users to a unified, trusted, and comprehensive view of all their data while maintaining accountability and ensuring regulatory compliance. And only SDX enables consistent security across multiple clouds and on premises.

CDP Public Cloud

Create and manage secure data lakes, self-service analytics, and machine learning services without installing and managing the data platform software. CDP Public Cloud services are managed by Cloudera, but unlike other public cloud services, your data will always remain under your control in your VPC. CDP runs on AWS, Azure and Google Cloud.

CDP Public Cloud lets you:

  • Control cloud costs by automatically spinning up workloads when needed and suspending their operation when complete 
  • Isolate and control workloads based on user type, workload type, and workload priority
  • Combat proliferating silos and centrally control customer and operational data across multi-cloud and hybrid environments
