Managing Hadoop clusters can be painful. To makes things easier, Univa is offering a whitepaper on Univa Grid Engine Integration for Hadoop.
Managing MapReduce applications in a shared infrastructure by integrating with Univa Grid Engine adds enterprise-level features and capabilities that do not exist otherwise. Hadoop assumes that all hosts are under its control and will not recognize that other workloads may be executing on the same server it may choose to place a job. This whitepaper will show you how to create an integration that creates a shared resource pool that supports Hadoop as well as any other workload submitted to Univa Grid Engine cluster.
