 Great to see this effort going. As you stated, the first part would

a bare-bones level could be that Ambari does not require HDFS to be running and does not interfere
with the HCFS service. The next level could be that Ambari provides some monitoring and statistics
for the HCFS. A higher level could be that Ambari can deploy the HCFS, etc.
