The Benefits of Predictive and Proactive Support for an Enterprise Data Hub


Published on

Your data is a strategic asset, and the benefits of your Hadoop deployment hinge on uptime, reliability, and expert guidance. Companies that have a specific plan with clear success criteria, benchmarks, and production goals are able to get the most from their journey to enterprise data hub (EDH), starting on day one. By leveraging insights from a proactive study of tens of thousands of nodes under subscription, Cloudera Enterprise customers can even minimize downstream issues before they occur.

Learn how Cloudera:

- Helps eliminate known issues and avoid common cluster misconfigurations
- Guides better utilization of the EDH according to comparative analysis
- Ensures enterprises optimize support resources for faster issue resolution
