Subject [jira] [Created] (YARN-1964) Support Docker containers in YARN
Date Sat, 19 Apr 2014 14:57:14 GMT
Arun C Murthy created YARN-1964:

             Summary: Support Docker containers in YARN
                 Key: YARN-1964
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-1964
             Project: Hadoop YARN
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Arun C Murthy
            Assignee: Arun C Murthy

Docker (https://www.docker.io/) is, increasingly, a very popular container technology.

In context of YARN, the support for Docker will provide a very elegant solution to allow applications
to *package* their software into a Docker container (entire Linux file system incl. custom
versions of perl, python etc.) and use it as a blueprint to launch all their YARN containers
with requisite software environment. This provides both consistency (all YARN containers will
have the same software environment) and isolation (no interference with whatever is installed
on the physical machine).
