CDP for HDP Users


About This Course

The Cloudera Data Platform (CDP) is substantially different than its predecessors. Not only are there updated versions of nearly every component, there are also entirely new components, some of which have made older ones obsolete.

This course begins with a summary of updated components, comparing the versions in the latest versions of HDP2 and HDP3 to their counterparts in CDP. The course then explains which components from HDP aren't included in CDP, as well as their suggested replacements. Afterward, we introduce several components in CDP that will likely be new to HDP users, explaining the purpose of each and briefly demonstrating how they work.

Course Length

This course includes 2.5 hours of video content.
