HBaseCon 2012 | Orchestrating Clusters with Ironfan and Chef


Wednesday, May 30th, 2012


This session will discuss how you can represent your complete cluster with one config file and have it deployed to Cloud or Bare Metal. Infochmimps’ Ironfan builds on Opscode Chef to allow you to specify and orchestrate all flavors of your cluster’s deployment, monitoring and growth. Not just the core HBase/HDFS/MapReduce/Hive/Flume, etc. but all the elements including web / app servers, mysql, redis, rabbitmq and whatever other servers needed to implement your service. These same tools can manage variations for development, staging, R&D as well as the target “rendering” to various Clouds, Bare Metal or even Vagrant VMs.
