When I first started to understand what YARN is, I wanted to build an application to understand its core. There was already a great example YARN application called Distributed Shell that I could use as the shell (pun intended) for my experiment. Now I just needed an existing application that could provide massive reuse value by other applications. I looked around and I decided on MemcacheD.

This brief guide shows how to get MemcacheD up and running on YARN – MOYA if you will…

Prerequisites

You’re going to need a few things to get the sample application operational.…

One of the great things about working in open source development is working with other experts round the work on big projects – and then having the results of that work in the hands of users within a short period of time.

This is why I’m really excited about the Rackspace announcement of their HDP-based Big Data offerings, both “on-prem” and in cloud. Not just because its partners of us offering a service based on Hadoop, but because it shows how Hadoop integration with OpenStack has reached a point where it’s ready for production use.…

With the attention of the Hadoop community on Strata/Hadoop World in New York this week, it’s seems an appropriate time to give everyone an early update on continued community development of Apache Hive. This progress well and truly cements Hive as the standard open-source SQL solution for the Apache Hadoop ecosystem for not just extremely large-scale, batch queries but also for low-latency, human-interactive queries.

You can catch me at our session ‘Apache Hive & Stinger: Petabyte Scale SQL, IN Hadoop’ along with Owen and Alan where we’ll be happy to dive into more of the details.…
