Sharing is caring!

INDIA, May 8, 2024 – Cloudera, the data company for trusted enterprise AI, today announced Cloudera Flow Management – Kubernetes Operator and Cloudera Streaming – Kubernetes Operator, allowing customers to deploy Apache NiFi, Apache Kafka and Apache Flink clusters on Kubernetes application platforms such as Red Hat OpenShift, the industry’s leading hybrid cloud application platform powered by Kubernetes. With these upcoming Kubernetes Operators, customers can more easily deploy end-to-end data streaming capabilities on their existing Kubernetes clusters and benefit from auto-scaling, efficient resource management as well as streamlined set up and operations.

Cloudera’s Data-in-Motion offerings provide the connective tissue between all enterprise data assets, delivering streaming data and real-time insights to any target system or application. Cloudera Flow Management – Kubernetes Operator and Cloudera Streaming – Kubernetes Operator reduces operational overhead by utilizing the proven operator pattern that Red Hat OpenShift users are familiar with.

“We’re excited to be among the first to offer operator and commercial support for organizations looking to run Apache NiFi data flows on Red Hat OpenShift,” said Dipto Chakravarty, Chief Product Officer at Cloudera. “Cloudera Flow Management customers and open source users who move to Kubernetes operators will immediately benefit from auto-scaling flows and streamlined cluster setup and operations.”

Tushar Katarki, senior director, Product Management, Hybrid Cloud Platforms, Red Hat, said, “Red Hat is committed to enabling organizations with open source technologies across hybrid cloud environments. We are pleased to collaborate with Cloudera to help customers deploy streaming pipelines to speed up innovation projects and scale on Red Hat OpenShift.”

“DataSQRL makes it simple and fast to build streaming data products and real-time AI applications on top of Cloudera Data Platform by eliminating data integration and data plumbing. We are excited about our collaboration with Cloudera and their new Streaming Kubernetes Operator, which helps manage and operate the underlying technologies needed for these applications,” said Matthias Broecheler, CEO & Founder at DataSQRL.

The Data-in-Motion products available as Kubernetes Operators to run on Red Hat OpenShift are in tech preview and will be generally available in 2H 2024. After downloading the binaries from Cloudera’s repository, customers can immediately proceed with installing the Kubernetes Operator on their Red Hat OpenShift cluster and create their first NiFi, Kafka or Flink clusters configured to their liking.
