Integrating Hue with LDAP can help make your secure Hadoop apps as widely consumed as possible.
Hue, the open source Web UI that makes Apache Hadoop easier to use, easily integrates with your corporation’s existing identity management systems and provides authentication mechanisms for SSO providers. So, by changing a few configuration parameters, your employees can start analyzing Big Data in their own browsers under an existing security policy.
Thanks to the improvements described here, CDH 5 will ship with a version of MapReduce 2 that is just as fast (or faster) than MapReduce 1.
Performance fixes are tiny, easy, and boring, once you know what the problem is. The hard work is in putting your finger on that problem: narrowing, drilling down, and measuring, measuring, measuring.
This FAQ contains answers to the most frequently asked questions about the architecture and configuration choices involved.
In December 2013, Cloudera and Amazon Web Services (AWS) announced a partnership to support Cloudera Enterprise on AWS infrastructure. Along with this announcement, we released a Deployment Reference Architecture Whitepaper. In this post, you’ll get answers to the most frequently asked questions about the architecture and the configuration choices that have been highlighted in that whitepaper.
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:
Migrating from the Hive CLI to Beeline isn’t as simple as changing the executable name, but this post makes it easy nonetheless.
In its original form, Apache Hive was a heavyweight command-line tool that accepted queries and executed them utilizing MapReduce. Later, the tool split into a client-server model, in which HiveServer1 is the server (responsible for compiling and monitoring MapReduce jobs) and Hive CLI is the command-line interface (sends SQL to the server).
With the close of 2013, we also thought it appropriate to include some high points from across the year (not listed in any particular order):
Create a test environment for writing and testing Giraph jobs, or just for playing around with Giraph and small sample datasets.
Apache Giraph is a scalable, fault-tolerant implementation of graph-processing algorithms in Apache Hadoop clusters of up to thousands of computing nodes. Giraph is in use at companies like Facebook and PayPal, for example, to help represent and analyze the billions (or even trillions) of connections across massive datasets. Giraph was inspired by Google’s Pregel framework and integrates well with Apache Accumulo, Apache HBase, Apache Hive, and Cloudera Impala.
Cloudera is announcing the general availability of support for Spark, bringing interactive machine learning and stream processing to enterprise data hubs.
Cloudera is pleased to announce the immediate availability of its first release of Apache Spark for Cloudera Enterprise (comprising CDH and Cloudera Manager).
