Who is this presentation for?

  • IT architects, infrastructure and operations managers, analytics developers, data scientists, and engineers



Prerequisite knowledge

  • Familiarity with Cloudera Enterprise administration and deployment and AWS or Azure cloud instance administration and configuration

What you'll learn

  • Explore Cloudera SDX and its role as part of Cloudera Enterprise
  • Learn how SDX works across storage services, workloads, and operating environments
  • Discover how to deploy and configure your own SDX based on Cloudera’s reference architecture


Cloudera SDX provides unified data context that includes schema, permissions, and governance artifacts. This in turn massively simplifies administration and control of data assets across diverse storage systems, a multitude of workload types, and deployment environments spanning bare metal to the cloud. It provides enterprises unmatched flexibility, agility, and cost savings, enabling their IT to control workloads anywhere, managed any way, and deliver a shared data experience that businesses need today.

Santosh Kumar, Andre Araujo, and Wim Stoop cover SDX from concept to deployment. After quickly setting the stage for the problems that SDX addresses, they guide you through setting up SDX across multiple clusters and walk you through its advantages. Along the way, you’ll explore best practices and recommended architectures for SDX.

With SDX, it’s easier to share, trust, and audit data-driven activities while also reducing the impact on operational overhead. You’ll leave with the skills and experience you need to deploy SDX in your own Cloudera Enterprise cluster, ensuring consistent data context across both long-running and transient workloads.
