|Here is a great paper written by an engineer in ISV Engineering on how to set up an Apache Hadoop 2.2 (YARN) cluster on a single system using Oracle Solaris Zones, the ZFS file system, and the new Unified Archive capabilities of Oracle Solaris 11.2. Also see how to configure manual or automatic failover, and how to use the Unified Archive to create a "cloud in a box" and deploy a bare-metal system|
This article starts with a brief overview of Hadoop and follows with an example of setting up a Hadoop cluster with two NameNodes, a Resource Manager, a History Server, and three DataNodes. As a prerequisite, you should have a basic understanding of Oracle Solaris Zones and network administration.
