    Hi Nietzsche,
    There has been a great deal of improvements made to Ambari. Have you tried the latest release?



    Yes, I have tried the latest version, which I must say is a lot better than what it was 3 months ago.

    I guess the thing I want to know is:
    1. Is Hortonworks plan to make Ambari the preferred tool for deployment and management of HDP?
    2. Are people using it for production clusters yet?

    I am just using it for dev and test right now.


    Hi Nietzsche,

    To answer your questions:
    1) Yes Hortonworks’ plan is for Ambari to be the preferred tool for installation and management of Hadoop.
    2) We do have some customers that are using Ambari in production clusters.



    Thanks @tedr. That answers it!
