Want to setup a Hadoop Cluster from a Solaris Unified Archive?

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.

Guide to using Solaris 11.2 Kernel Zones and Unified Archives with SAS

Kernel Zones and Unified Archives are two new features of the just announced Oracle Solaris 11.2 release and some of our partners, like SAS have already started using them.

In this guide we are explaining why these features make perfect sense for SAS Systems Administrators and provide a simple cookbook for how Kernel Zones can be easily provisioned and duplicated with Oracle Solaris Unified Archives.

Topics covered in the guide:

  • What are Kernel Zones?
  • Why are they relevant for SAS Deployments?
  • A simplified walkthrough
    • Creating the Kernel Zone
    • Post Installation Considerations
    • Performance Impact - Minimal
  • Cloning & Deployment Using Solaris Unified Archives
  • Upgrading from Solaris 11.1 to Solaris 11.2
