Deploying, configuring, and managing large Apache Hadoop and HBase clusters can be quite complex. Once you have your clusters, keeping them up and running and making sure that the SLAs are met presents even more challenges and headaches to Hadoop operators. To make matters worse, managing upgrades can be a nightmare. Hadoop users are presented with their own fair share of difficulties such as slow running jobs and not knowing why they are slow. For third-party software vendors interested in incorporating Hadoop management and monitoring capabilities, there does not seem to be an obvious, easy solution. Apache Ambari is aimed at making lives of Hadoop operators, users, and integrators simpler by providing a management interface to do all of that and more. This session presents usages of Ambari`s Web UI for Hadoop operators (deploying, managing, and monitoring) as well as Hadoop users (job analytics). The talk will also touch upon Ambari`s REST API and how it is used in the real world. The session concludes by revealing the future roadmap of Ambari including queue management, upgrade, disaster recovery, high availability, and more.
