I’m proud to see my team announce the twin arrival of the Dell | Cloudera Apache Hadoop (Manager v4) and Dell OpenStack-Powered Cloud (Essex) solutions.
Not only are we simultaneously releasing both of these solutions, they reflect a significant acceleration in pace of delivery. Both solutions had beta support for their core technologies (Cloudera 4 & OpenStack Essex) when the components were released and we have dramatically reduced the lag from component RC to solution release compared to past (3.7 & Diablo) milestones.
As before, the core deployment logic of these open source based solutions was developed in the open on Crowbar’s github. You are invited to download and try these solutions yourself. For Dell solutions, we include validated reference architectures, hardware configuration extensions for Crowbar, services and support.
The latest versions of Hadoop and OpenStack represent great strides for both solutions. It’s great to be able have made them more deployable and faster to evaluate and manage.
