A gateway cluster is an independent cluster that consists of multiple nodes of the same configuration.

When you create a gateway cluster, you can associate it with an existing Hadoop cluster. To facilitate cluster operations, it is recommended that you associate it with a cluster on which Hadoop (HDFS and YARN), Hive, Spark, Sqoop, Pig, or other clients have been deployed. It is an independent submission point and does not use up cluster resources, especially when you submit jobs on the Master node. This improves the stability of the Master node. If there are too many jobs to submit, you can add nodes as and when you need them.

You can also create multiple gateway clusters for different users, allowing them to use their own environment to meet different service requirements.
