Nimbula, Inc. Introduces its Elastic Hadoop Solution with MapR Technologies

Nimbula, Inc. introduced its elastic Hadoop solution with MapR Technologies to help customers get their Hadoop cluster running on a Nimbula Director-based cloud in minutes. The solution combines Nimbula Director with MapR's Hadoop distribution and includes templates, recipes and verification tests for running Hadoop on Nimbula Director. Nimbula Director, Nimbula's private cloud platform, takes bare metal servers with local disks and turns them into a large multi-tenant pool of compute with a self-service provisioning interface enabling the repeated provisioning and deprovisioning of Hadoop and non-Hadoop workloads. The automation of the Hadoop services from MapR and the automation of the underlying instances from Nimbula work together to maintain a fully-functional and highly-available Hadoop cluster. The elasticity and multi-tenancy of Nimbula Director complement the dependability and security of the MapR Hadoop Distribution, allowing clusters to grow and shrink over time and to be completely isolated from one another - all on a single pool of infrastructure. Customers benefit from: deploying Hadoop clusters in under 2 minutes; launching their own Hadoop clusters on a private cloud without needing to requisition hardware; operating their Hadoop clusters in a lights-out data center with automated re-provisioning of failed nodes and a no-NameNode architecture; sharing infrastructure between Hadoop clusters with complete permissions, network and resource isolation; sharing infrastructure between Hadoop and non-Hadoop workloads. The main use cases for elastic Hadoop include: development and testing of Hadoop based solution; multi-tenant Hadoop and resource sharing; running Hadoop and non-Hadoop workloads on the same pool of hardware for solutions such as 'follow the moon computing'.
