Hortonworks、Mirantis与红帽公司协力简化OpenStack上的Apache Hadoop部署和管理

三家公司宣布加快OpenStack基金会中加速Savanna项目的计划

俄勒冈州Portland市OpenStack峰会 – 2013年4月16日 — 领先的ApacheTM Hadoop®贡献方Hortonworks公司,最大的OpenStackTM 系统集成商Mirantis公司,以及全球领先的开源解决方案及最新版OpenStack的最大贡献方红帽公司(纽约证交所上市代码:RHT)今天宣布,三家公司正在根据OpenStack社区指导方针,携手为Savanna项目做出重大贡献,共同在OpenStack上实现Apache Hadoop。这一协作的目标是提供多项优势,其中包括提供开源API,以及通过避免重新编制工具,为Hadoop负载在公共和私有云上的迁移提供更为简便的过渡过程

OpenStack是一种建设和管理私有、公共和混合基础设施即服务(IaaS)云的框架,其核心的软件项目将提供计算、存储和联网管理服务,以及一项共享式身份服务和仪表板。Hadoop则可通过使用简单的编程模型,实现大型数据集在多个计算机集群中的分布式处理。Savanna项目的目标是使OpenStack用户能够轻松供应和管理弹性Hadoop集群,加快高成本效益的Hadoop在OpenStack上的开发和部署进程。

Savanna项目

Hortonworks、Mirantis和红帽公司之间的协作活动将主要侧重于为Savanna项目贡献工程资源,该项目最初是一个由Mirantis公司引入的OpenStack项目。Savanna项目最初迈出的重要一步就是为第三方Hadoop供应和管理框架提供一个集成点,例如Apache Ambari项目。它将使企业用户能够通过OpenStack API和仪表板非常迅速地供应Hadoop发布版本。此外,Savanna将允许利用通用OpenStack基础设施池中未使用的计算能力来执行Hadoop负载。三家公司可望在 2013年6月23日在加州San Jose举办的Hadoop峰会上展示这一技术。

Hortonworks公司负责产品的副总裁Bob Page指出:“当我们能够对硬件加以高效利用并具备无与伦比的敏捷性后,云将成为Apache Hadoop的合理部署平台,而且我们发现许多客户都这样的平台青睐有加。此外,Hadoop对于许多机构而言是一种全新的负载,因此部署在OpenStack将是再合适不过了。通过与Ambari挂钩并努力简化Hadoop在OpenStack上的部署和管理,我们相信这项工作将大幅度加快各类机构中新建Hadoop项目顺利投入生产的速度。”

Mirantis公司负责云业务的高级主管Ilya Elterman认为:“我们对Savanna项目的构想是简化这些大型数据Hadoop负载在OpenStack上的部署和管理。我们很高兴能看到红帽和Hortonworks这样的业界重量级企业也开始为Savanna项目贡献其专业能力。这是开源社区所取得的一项重要进展,而我们也非常荣幸能与Hortonworks和红帽公司开展协作。”

红帽公司负载存储业务的战略主管Greg Kleiman表示:“越来越多的企业和服务商都将大型数据视作一种差别化竞争优势,并将混合去看作一种创新平台,因此Hadoop的部署可以加快OpenStack的普及并从公共和私有云实施的协调一致的接口中受益良多。红帽公司致力于在OpenStack基金会的框架内积极参与Savanna项目,使其得到简化,让企业能够以更简便、更具成本效益的方式将大型数据负载在公共和私有云之间进行迁移。”
