Last week we released support for Apache Hadoop 2.5.0. I thought it would be a good time to revisit all the updates we’ve made over the last 6 months - in case you missed them.
Our latest updates include:
- Apache Hadoop 2.5.1 Typo? Not exactly. We introduced support for Apache Hadoop 2.5.0 last week. Since Version 2.5.1 (released on September 13, 2014) is a minor release that builds upon the stable 2.4.1 release, you can now expect support via YUM updates to Bright. Note that vanilla Apache Hadoop includes HDFS (the Hadoop Distributed File System), ZooKeeper (the coordination service) as well as YARN (the workload manager).
- Cloudera CDH 5.1.0 We introduced support for CDH 5.1.0 in mid-July.
- Hortonworks HDP 2.1 We introduced support for Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) 2.1 in mid-May.
Bottom line: Bright Cluster Manager maintains support for all major distributions of Apache Hadoop. Because we’re obsessed with keeping you current, you don’t have to be. We free you up to focus on the analysis of Big Data - and wasn’t that why you got interested in Hadoop in the first place?Read More >
Last week, Bright Computing Senior Systems Architect Robert Stober presented a session entitled Why your Hadoop cluster needs a cluster manager at the 2014 Hadoop Summit.
His talk covered some of the many benefits that using an enterprise-grade cluster manager can bring to the world of Hadoop. From automated health checks to node provisioning at the push of a button, there’s a lot to gain by using the right tool for the job.
As promised, we're posting Robert's deck here for those who were unable to watch the session. We hope you find it helpful.
