We continue to make strong headway towards the general availability of Hadoop 2.0. A release candidate for Hadoop 2.1.0- Beta is currently under consideration by the Apache community. This critical milestone signifies both the outstanding progress being made by the community and equally important, the stabilization of Hadoop 2.0 APIs.
A defining characteristic of Hadoop 2.0 is its next generation resource management framework called YARN. YARN enables Hadoop to grow beyond its MapReduce origins to embrace multiple workloads spanning interactive queries, batch processing, streaming & more.
With the stabilization of Hadoop 2.0 APIs, application developers can now develop on YARN to bring new capabilities to their customers. At Hortonworks we are collaborating with key industry leaders on their YARN initiatives and will be sharing best practices for developing YARN application on the upcoming webinar “Apache Hadoop YARN – Deep Dive”.
Whether you are developing a new YARN based application or are interested in making your existing application run on YARN, the webinar will be an invaluable source of information.
We look forward to having you join us on the webinar on Wed. Aug. 7 at 10 am Pacific Time. You can register here.
