In the Spark Version drop-down list on the Clusters page of the QDS UI, latest means the latest open-source maintenance version. If you choose latest, Qubole Spark is automatically upgraded when a new maintenance version is released. For example, if 2.x latest currently points to Spark 2.x.y, then when 2.x.(y+1) is released, QDS clusters running 2.x latest automatically start using 2.x.(y+1) on a cluster restart.

Sqoop 1.4.2 AWS

Tez 0.7 AWS
Zeppelin (notebooks) 0.6.2 AWS, Azure, Oracle OCI

Spark Version Support

QDS supports two major versions of Spark, 1.x and 2.x. As of April 2017, Qubole began phasing out support for older versions. Those versions are marked deprecated in the drop-down list of available versions on the Clusters page of the QDS UI. You can still launch clusters running a version marked deprecated, but:

  • No new features or bug fixes will be applied to this version.
  • The version will no longer be eligible for Qubole Customer Support; tickets will not be addressed.
