Apache YARN, Apache Slider, and Docker

Join us June 19 at 6 pm at the Hilton Fort Worth, Texas for an educational workshop hosted by Hortonworks and Sendero Business Services. The topic is “The Key To Success is Consistently Making Good Decisions & The Key To Good Decisions is Good Information.” The speaker is Don Hilborn, Solutions Engineer at Hortonworks.

Don will introduce the paradigm of

  • Efficiency – double processing in Hadoop on the same hardware while providing predictable performance and quality of service; and
  • Resource sharing – providing a stable common set of shared resources across multiple, coordinated workloads in Hadoop.

With the release of Apache Hadoop YARN in October of last year, organizations are moving from single-application Hadoop clusters to a versatile, integrated Hadoop 2 data platform hosting multiple applications — eliminating silos, maximizing resources and bringing true multi-workload capabilities to Hadoop.  Many enterprises have adopted YARN as the architectural center of a set of integrated technologies and capabilities that form the blueprint for enterprise Hadoop.
