Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-7417) Hadoop Management System (Umbrella)
Date Tue, 28 Jun 2011 05:20:17 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-7417?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13056315#comment-13056315

Jagane Sundar commented on HADOOP-7417:

The goal of HMS is to provide a Hadoop specific management platform. While chef/puppet/bcfg2
and other scripted deployment tools are useful for simpler software, a complex software platform
such as Hadoop could benefit from a management platform that is custom built for it.

With the hadoop.next platform starting to take shape, the job of installing and configuring
Hadoop is going to need even more sophisticated technology. It is critical to look at management
of Hadoop from a holistic perspective.

HMS plays nice with existing packaging mechanisms such as .rpms, .debs and tar files, which
are the finest granularity building blocks.

Alan - I don't understand your comparison of Whirr with HMS. HMS has the potential to provide
the ability for cloud service providers to provide a clone of Elastic Map Reduce. Correct
me if I am wrong, but isn't Whirr a set of scripts for deploying Hadoop on an IaaS cloud?
