Cloud Computing CourseFinal Project AssessmentGuided by Dr. Dinkar Sitaram
Problem StatementThe specifics of the problem include, Interoperability between Hadoop and OpenStack. Hadoop assumes that it has the direct control over resources.But when installed on OpenStack, the compute and storageresources of a Hadoop node may be distributed remotely overthe network.This introduces latency between the storage andthe compute components. Minimizing the data transfer over iSCSI.

Proposed Solution Description The solution consists of following stages Using MRLU / Simple (Max Resource, Least Usage) schedulingalgorithm for allocatingVMs. Disabling the option for Live Migration. Using OpenStack root-disk for creating HDFS. Using Swift service to store User input data and results. Writing Bootstrap scripts to setup the IP address and otherinitialization tasks.
Solution Description MRLUTheVMs spawned by Nova should be on the machine withmaximum resource and least utility. Live MigrationIn order to minimize the traffic via iSCSI, the solution demandsthat we disable the live migration ofVMs on OpenStack. Root DiskInstead of allocating Cinder storage for HDFS, we plan to useroot-disk located at /var/lib/nova/instances/ on the localmachine.This would impose that the HDFS is not connectedover iSCSI.
Solution Description SwiftTo provide flexibility and abstraction for the user to interactwith the service, we use Swift to store the user input. Hadoopuses this data to compute and store the results back on Swift. BootstrappingWe define a set of tasks that need to be performedbefore/after spawning theVMs. Some of these tasks includeassigning IP address to Hadoop nodes etc.This can be achievedby simple bootstrap scripts.
