Apache Ambari


Apache Ambari is a cluster management tool for Apache Hadoop.


Current status

  • Targeted release: Fedora 21
  • Last updated: 7 April 2014
  • Tracker bug: <will be assigned by the Wrangler>

Detailed Description

The Apache Ambari project is aimed at making Hadoop management simpler by developing software for provisioning, managing, and monitoring Apache Hadoop clusters. Ambari provides an intuitive, easy-to-use Hadoop management web UI backed by its RESTful APIs.

Apache Pig is a data analysis tool used by many parts of the Hadoop ecosystem. Including it in Fedora increases usefulness of the Apache Hadoop package that is already in Fedora.
