The new era for your enterprise platform


Cloudera Data Platform (CDP) migration

Do you have everything you need?

CDP migration requires knowledge

Test if your team is ready

Unfortunately migrating to CDP is not a standard process and the execution plan is heavily dependent on the procedure and the scenarios you’re interested in.

Do you know that there are several migration paths?

It is possible to migrate directly to a CDP public cloud and it is recommended if some cluster downtime is tolerated. Another approach is to migrate to a new cluster, it is strongly recommended if you are working with clusters consisting of a few nodes but, in this case, additional hardware is required. On the contrary, the In-Place approach is recommended if you are working with very large clusters, but this introduces inevitable downtime.

In addition to the multiplicity of existing approaches, a major problem may relate to some technologies that may not be supported. In these cases it is necessary to adopt manual approaches to migrate such components.

As you may have noticed, the CDP migration is not a common process and differs based on the infrastructure you want to migrate.

Are you ready to test your team’s knowledge and verify that you are ready to migrate to CDP?

Let your team take this test and immediately obtain a feedback on your skill status!

CDP migration requires planning

Assess every aspect of the migration before you begin

The design of a migration can be very complex if you choose to start from scratch. The odds of having to deal with unexpected and blocking problems can be high if you do not have a full knowledge of the entire technology stack or if the migration strategy does not fit perfectly with the infrastructure that will be migrated. 

The experience gained over the years allows us to define migration plans that are carefully produced considering the complexity of the infrastructure, analysing and accurately designing the migration strategy for each component infrastructure.

For this reason, to facilitate your migration and help you to define a migration plan, we will carry out a first gap analysis of your infrastructure and all the components you want to migrate.

To do this, we made up built an infrastructure assessment that allows us to find and highlight all the criticalities and possible hidden problems that could come up during your migration.

Click on the button below to start your assessment, at the end you will receive a detailed report with the problems, criticalities and possible blocking situations. It will be a great starting point for the definition of your migration plan.

The right path for a successful migration

Learn live from our experts

The CDP migration is coming up, are you ready to face this new challenge? Agile Lab is willing to work with you to support and guide you in this delicate process. 

We are a company that has been working with this technology stack for over 10 years, and after so many success stories our customers consider us experts in planning and executing Cloudera cluster migrations. The support provided to many customers led us to gain knowledge and the necessary know-how to foresee and manage the impediments and the problems that can emerge during the migration phase. We meticulously work to discover hidden problems that can create a lot of issues.

Our goal is to define the design of a migration plan that is sustainable, safe and fast respecting the time to market.

Boost your migration process

During a migration your team will have to go through a number of manual tasks. While it can be bothering for small clusters, it will certainly be impossible for larger one, especially if the migration time is tight.
That’s why we collected and created a number of automation tools that help us to give it a boost and ease the migration process.
