Onboarding Long Running Services to Apache Hadoop YARN Using Apache Slider

Apache Hadoop has come along a long way. From its early days as a platform to index the web, it has evolved to its current interactive, real-time, and batch processing capabilities spanning gigabytes to petabytes of content. A key stepping stone in this evolution has been Apache Hadoop YARN. YARN has enabled enterprises to onboard “fit for purpose” processing engines to its Hadoop Data Lake. This has opened the Data Lake to rapid and unbridled innovation by the ISV community and delivered differentiated insight to the enterprise. Increasingly, enterprises are looking for YARN Ready applications to maximize the value of its data.

As key architects of YARN, we at Hortonworks cherish open architecture and are committed to collaborate with partners to onboard their applications to YARN. To this end, we will be hosting the next installment of our YARN Webinar Series focused on Slider on Thursday August 7th at 9 AM Pacific Time. If you missed our last webinar on native YARN integration, you can review the recorded session here.

Slider provides a set of platform services that enables long running services to quickly run in the YARN environment. It provides four key benefits:

  • Simplified on-boarding of existing apps to YARN
  • Full capabilities of a YARN application
  • Integrated participation in enterprise Hadoop
  • Automated lifecycle management

In the webinar, we will

  • cover Slider architecture;
  • provide step-by-step guidance to leverage its services; and
  • show how to onboard your application to YARN with minimal development.
