Apache Bigtop: The “Fedora of Hadoop” is Now Built on Hadoop 2.x by Roman Shaposhnik.
From the post:
Just in time for Hadoop Summit 2013, the Apache Bigtop team is very pleased to announce the release of Bigtop 0.6.0: The very first release of a fully integrated Big Data management distribution built on the currently most advanced Hadoop 2.x, Hadoop 2.0.5-alpha.
Bigtop, as many of you might already know, is a project aimed at creating a 100% open source and community-driven Big Data management distribution based on Apache Hadoop. (You can learn more about it by reading one of our previous blog posts on Apache Blogs.) Bigtop also plays an important role in CDH, which utilizes its packaging code from Bigtop — Cloudera takes pride in developing open source packaging code and contributing the same back to the community.
The very astute readers of this blog will notice that given our quarterly release schedule, Bigtop 0.6.0 should have been called Bigtop 0.7.0. It is true that we skipped a quarter. Our excuse is that we spent all this extra time helping the Hadoop community stabilize the Hadoop 2.x code line and making it a robust kernel for all the applications that are now part of the Bigtop distribution.
And speaking of applications, we haven’t forgotten to grow the Bigtop family: Bigtop 0.6.0 adds Apache HCatalog and Apache Giraph to the mix. The full list of Hadoop applications available as part of the Bigtop 0.6.0 release is:
- Apache Zookeeper 3.4.5
- Apache Flume 1.3.1
- Apache HBase 0.94.5
- Apache Pig 0.11.1
- Apache Hive 0.10.0
- Apache Sqoop 2 (AKA 1.99.2)
- Apache Oozie 3.3.2
- Apache Whirr 0.8.2
- Apache Mahout 0.7
- Apache Solr (SolrCloud) 4.2.1
- Apache Crunch (incubating) 0.5.0
- Apache HCatalog 0.5.0
- Apache Giraph 1.0.0
- LinkedIn DataFu 0.0.6
- Cloudera Hue 2.3.0
And we were just talking about YARN and applications weren’t we? 😉
(Participate if you can but at least send a note of appreciation to Cloudera.)
