The best architecture diagrams are those that impart the intended knowledge with maximum efficiency and minimum ambiguity. But sometimes there’s a need to add a little pizazz, and maybe even draw a picture or two for those Powerpoint moments.
We’ve built a small set of Hadoop-related icons that might help you next time you need that picture focusing on the intended function of various components. If you need the official logos then you can grab those from the various Apache project sites. We also put in some thoughts on how to use them for best effect, but feel free to ignore us and use them however you like.
For this v1.0 we’ve covered some basics of physical and software components and put them into a Powerpoint template. Love them? Hate them? Want something different? Let us know and we’ll see if we can add them to the set and maybe even build a Visio stencil…
You can see the icons below, and download them from the Slideshare site.
