Integrating Hadoop Operations with Microsoft System Center

A crucial requirement of any enterprise technology is to ensure simplest possible management and operation. We think that simplicity means two things: 1) integration with existing infrastructure and tools and 2) leveraging existing knowledge and skills.

Download the beta release of Ambari SCOM Management Pack here.

Ambari (http://incubator.apache.org/ambari/) was introduced as an Apache incubator project with the aim of developing the best management tool for Hadoop applying our principles of open source community development for rapid innovation and solving the right problems for enterprises.

Ambari has proved to be a great example of those principles in action: over 1000 JIRAs resolved; nearly a dozen releases; and contribution activity from more than 50+ individuals, with participation from traditional enterprises as well as software vendors.

To continue to deliver on our goals of simplicity then, we are pleased to announce a unique patch contribution to Ambari called the Ambari SCOM Management Pack (or “Ambari SCOM” for short). If you use Windows in your data center, then you’ll almost certainly use Microsoft System Center for management. Microsoft System Center Operations Manager is the premier data center management platform for IT infrastructure for Windows operators.

If you’re working with Hadoop on Windows, join us for a meetup at PASS in Charlotte on Oct 15th.

Ambari SCOM enables monitoring of Hadoop from the familiar interface of System Center. After importing the Management Pack into SCOM, you can view Hadoop-level metrics such as HDFS space utilization, JVM performance, and block health.

The Ambari SCOM integration is made possible by the pluggable nature of Ambari. Ambari sits in front of your Hadoop cluster and exposes a REST API — a single, comprehensive and consistent integration point for cluster information for SCOM.

Hortonworks is making this contribution package available in Beta form as an Add On to HDP for Windows. You can download the Ambari SCOM Management Pack here. Or if you want to dig into the technology, check out the patch contribution here.

A special shout-out to our Friends at Microsoft for the amazing work and contribution to Ambari SCOM.

Happy Hadooping!

Hmm is anyone else experiencing problems with the images on this blog loading?

I’m trying to find out if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
