Zoomdata Version

Connecting to Cloudera

Zoomdata provides connectors to both the Cloudera Impala and Cloudera Search data sources.

Cloudera Impala is a query engine that accesses data stored in clusters running Apache Hadoop.

Cloudera Search enables searches of data stored in Hadoop and provides a simple full-text interface to conduct those searches. Cloudera Search supports Cloudera's open source Hadoop platform - CDH (Cloudera Distributed Hadoop). Zoomdata also connects to CDH via the HDFS connector .

Cloudera also supports a secure CHD cluster using Kerberos authentication so that access requests can be validated and confirmed. Zoomdata can connect Impala to Kerberized CDH cluster .
