Our hearty congratulations to the Cloudera engineers who have been accepted as ApacheCon NA 2013 (Feb. 26-28 in Portland, OR) speakers for these talks:
(The following is a re-post from apache.org)
Apache Sqoop 1.4.2 was released in August 2012. As this was an extremely important release for the Sqoop community – our first release as an Apache Top Level project – I would like to highlight the key features and fixes of this release. The entire change log can be viewed on our JIRA and actual bits can be downloaded from the usual place.
Update time! As a reminder, Cloudera releases major versions of CDH, our 100% open source distribution of Apache Hadoop and related projects, annually and then updates to CDH every three months. Updates primarily comprise bug fixes but we will also add enhancements. We only include fixes or enhancements in updates that maintain compatibility, improve system stability and still allow customers and users to skip updates as they see fit.
We’re pleased to announce the availability of CDH4.1. We’ve seen excellent adoption of CDH4.0 since it went GA at the end of June and a number of exciting use cases have moved to production. CDH4.1 is an update that has a number of fixes but also a number of useful enhancements. Among them:
- Quorum based storage – Quorum-based Storage for HDFS provides the ability for HDFS to store its own NameNode edit logs, allowing you to run a highly available NameNode without external storage or custom fencing.
Strata Conference + Hadoop World (Oct. 23-25 in New York City) is a bonanza for Hadoop and big data enthusiasts – but not only because of the technical sessions and tutorials. It’s also an important gathering place for the developer community, most of whom are eager to share info from their experiences in the “trenches”.
Just to make that process easier, Cloudera is teaming up with local meetups during that week to organize a series of meetings on a variety of topics.
We are happy to announce the general availability of CDH3 update 5. This update is a maintenance release of CDH3 platform and provides a considerable amount of bug-fixes and stability enhancements. Alongside these fixes, we have also included a few new features, most notable of which are the following:
- Apache Flume 1.2.0 – Provides a durable file channel and many more features over the previous release.
- Hive AvroSerDe – Replaces the Haivvreo SerDe and provides robust support for Avro data format.
