Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] Whirr Project
Date Fri, 16 Apr 2010 05:28:53 GMT
Hi Tom,

This sounds interesting. It would be interesting to look at e.g., how we could take some of
the OODT [1] configurations and use Whirr as a front-end to run them in the cloud. I also
know the folks in Solr are using Zookeeper, so they may benefit from this project as well.

I don't have a huge amount of time since I'm overcommitted at work, and with 2 podlings I'm
participating in (OODT and SIS), but my +1 to move forward with this as it seems useful. I
will try and monitor the lists and if I get the time to help out at some point, I'll bug you
on list ^_^

Cheers,
Chris

I would like to propose Whirr as an incubator proposal.

Whirr will be a set of libraries for running cloud services, such as
Hadoop or Cassandra. The initial code (for Hadoop) is hosted as a
Hadoop contrib module, but I believe it would flourish as its own
project with its own community.

The proposal is on the incubator wiki at
http://wiki.apache.org/incubator/WhirrProposal.

We look forward to hearing feedback and questions on the proposal.
Also, we don't have any mentors yet, so please sign up if you are
interested in helping out.

Thanks,
Tom
