It’s been a while since we provided a how-to for this purpose. Thanks, Daan Debie (@DaanDebie), for allowing us to re-publish the instructions below (for CDH 5)!
I recently started as a Big Data Engineer at The New Motion. While researching our best options for running an Apache Hadoop cluster, I wanted to try out some of the features available in the newest version of Cloudera’s Hadoop distribution: CDH 5. Of course I could’ve downloaded the QuickStart VM, but I rather wanted to run a virtual cluster, making use of the 16GB of RAM my shiny new 15″ Retina Macbook Pro has ;)
Unique across all options, Cloudera Manager makes it easy to do what would otherwise be a disruptive operation for operators and users.
For the increasing number of customers that rely on enterprise data hubs (EDHs) for business-critical applications, it is imperative to minimize or eliminate downtime — thus, Cloudera has focused intently on making software upgrades a routine, non-disruptive operation for EDH administrators and users.
Thanks to Bill Podell, VP Big Data and BI Practice, MBI Solutions, for the guest post below.
Capacity planning has long been a critical component of successful implementations for production systems. Today, Big Data calls for a particularly deep understanding of capacity management – because resource utilization explodes as business users, analysts, and data scientists jump onboard to analyze and use newly found data. The resource impact can escalate very quickly, causing poor loading and or response times. The result is throwing more hardware at the issue without any understanding of what impact the new hardware will have on the current issue. Better yet, be proactive and know about the problem before the problem even occurs!
Thanks to Jonathan Natkins of WibiData for the post below about how his company extended Cloudera Manager to manage Kiji. Learn more about Kiji and the organizations using it to build real-time HBase applications at Kiji Sessions, happening on May 6, 2014, the day after HBaseCon.
As a partner of Cloudera, WibiData sees Cloudera Manager’s new extensibility framework as one of the most exciting parts of Cloudera Enterprise 5. Cloudera Manager 5.0.0 provides the single-pane view that Apache Hadoop administrators and operators want to effectively manage a cluster of machines. Additionally, Cloudera Manager now offers tight integration for partners to plug into the CDH ecosystem, which benefits Cloudera as well as WibiData.
In this installment of “Meet the Engineer”, our subject is Andrei Savu!
What do you do at Cloudera?
The GA release of Cloudera Enterprise 5 signifies the evolution of the platform from a mere Apache Hadoop distribution into an enterprise data hub.
We are thrilled to announce the GA release of Cloudera Enterprise 5 (comprising CDH 5.0 and Cloudera Manager 5.0).
Cloudera has released the Beta 2 version of Cloudera Enterprise 5 (comprises CDH 5.0.0 and Cloudera Manager 5.0.0).
This release (download) contains a number of new features and component versions including the ones below:
More and more customers are using automation/configuration management frameworks alongside Cloudera Manager.
As Apache Hadoop clusters continue to grow in size, complexity, and business importance as the foundational infrastructure for an Enterprise Data Hub, the use cases for a robust and mature management console expand.
Learn the new features and enhancements in Cloudera Manager 5, including support for YARN, management of third-party apps and frameworks, and more.
The response to the Oct. 2013 release of Cloudera Enterprise 5 Beta has been overwhelming, and Cloudera is busily working closely with several customers to incorporate their feedback.
Some things for which we are thankful, the 2013 edition (not listed in order):
1. The entire Apache Hadoop community for its constant and hard work to Make the Platform Better,
