phData Announces the Launch of Archway, an Open Source Project

Press Release ( - MINNEAPOLIS - Nov 13, 2019 - ​​phData, Inc. today announced the launch of Archway, an open source project under the Apache License Version 2, that automates the creation and governance of user workspaces in Cloudera CDH environments, with ease-of-use, accuracy, flexibility, and security in mind. It makes self-service data engineering a reality, with an intuitive user interface (UI) that empowers teams to create workspaces and set up access control in a matter of minutes — granting faster access to data and helping ensure that configuration issues never stand in the way of a successful project.

With Archway, users simply choose from a list of workspace types that fit the needs of their project, then input basic information and data compliance requirements. Compliance and operations teams review these workspace requests and can approve them with the click of a button. Workspace resources are then created automatically in the background, and access control is configured instantaneously.

“We are excited to bring the automation and collaboration capabilities of Archway to a new set of users as an open source project,” said Brock Noland, Chief Architect at phData. “We hope more companies will be able to benefit by increasing the efficiency of their Cloudera clusters.”

With Archway, teams can:

  • Empower users to quickly create and manage workspaces via a simple UI.
  • Enable users with example code and a simplified view of the cluster.
  • Remove operational overhead and streamline user onboarding with smart automation.
  • Automatically provision and deprovision resources.
  • Manage and track resources centrally, with visibility into who has access to which data.
  • Easily manage limited resources by setting up resource queues and disk quotas automatically.

“Archway brings benefits to both small and large Hadoop deployments by letting users get value from their data faster,” said Tony Foerster, Staff Engineer at phData. “The type of automation that Archway provides has been built to some degree many times over in closed ecosystems as different companies have recognized the need for better user onboarding and collaboration enablement.”
