Tools and applications that are Operations Ready have passed rigorous integration tests with the operational framework for Apache Hadoop and simplify the monitoring and management of the platform and for applications on HDP.
Apache Ambari is the open source operational framework for Hadoop. Ambari includes the APIs and platform extension points necessary for integration with monitoring and management tools and deployment of applications. Integration with enterprise monitoring and management tools increases the ease of use by providing a single pane of glass for management. Skills developed in existing management tools can be leveraged for HDP, and mechanisms for managing HDP can be re-used for components that are installed in the field as if they were part of HDP.
