Cloud adoption is now an integral part on any organization’s IT modernization and optimization strategy. With most versions of Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) nearing its end of life, it has become imperative for organizations to act fast and migrate to modern data platforms in order to mitigate risks of scalability, obsolete technologies & system failure prevalent with legacy systems. Also, organizations need to switch to performant technologies to serve their clients better. In such scenarios, migrating to Cloudera Data Platform (CDP) is a common choice for many reasons –scalability, performance, modern features and ease of migration.
Migration from HDP to CDP on public cloud can be complex, error prone, and time consuming considering the plethora of services the platform offers. A ‘first-time-right’ migration of data, workloads, and security is vital to keep the migration effort, time, and cost in control and reap faster return on investments (ROI) with lower total cost of ownership (TCO). A successful migration strategy of legacy HDP to CDP should facilitate the movement in a reliable, accurate, time-efficient, and cost-effective way.
