Yahoo! Launch Two New Hadoop Packages
Yahoo! have announced two new packages for the Hadoop platform: Hadoop with security and Oozie.
Hadoop with security integrates Hadoop with the Kerberos open source authentication standard to prevent unauthorised access to data on Hadoop cluster and collocating data for new classes of applications. Hadoop security can also be used to authenticate users sharing business-sensitive data.
Meanwhile, Oozie is an open source workflow solution for managing and coordinating jobs running on Hadoop, such as Pig and MapReduce.
Both packages can be downloaded now.
