Clouderas Distribution for Hadoop Version 3
A beta of Clouderas Distribution for Hadoop Version 3 (CDH3,) is now available with a new tool for importing SQL database information, into Apache Hadoop.
This new release adds a ZooKeeper service to the cloud scripts,
and the option to prohibit jars from unpacking, and support for EBS
storage on EC2. Another big update for CDH3, is ‘Sqoop,’ a database import tool for Hadoop. Sqoop uses
Java Database Connectivity to connect to a relational database,
before examining each table’s schema and then automatically
creating the extra classes needed to import said data into the
Hadoop Distributed File System.
There are also numerous bug fixes. Please see the CDH3 Release Notes for more information.
