Last week, we launched WANdisco Distro (WDD), a fully tested, production-ready version of Apache Hadoop 2 that undergoes the same rigorous quality assurance process as our enterprise software solutions. To support the needs of WDD users and the wider Apache Hadoop community, we’ve also launched a dedicated Apache Hadoop forum.
In addition to sections on the enterprise Hadoop products WDD, Non-Stop NameNode and WANdisco Console for Hadoop, forum users can connect with other users and get advice on their Hadoop installations – especially installing and configuring Hadoop, and running Hadoop on Amazon’s Simple Storage Service.
The Hadoop forum is also the place to connect with WANdisco’s core Hadoop developers. These include Dr. Konstantin V. Shvachko, a veteran Hadoop developer, member of the team that created the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) and current member of the Apache Hadoop PMC; Jagane Sundar, who has extensive big data, cloud, virtualization, and networking experience and former Director of Hadoop Performance and Operability at Yahoo!; and Dr. Konstantin Boudnik, one of the original developers of Hadoop and founder of Apache BigTop.
This forum is intended to be a useful resource for the Apache Hadoop community, so we’d love to hear your feedback on the Hadoop Forum. If there’s a section or functionality you would like to suggest we add to improve your forum experience, please let us know. You can leave a post at the forum, at this blog or Contact Us directly.
We look forward to hearing from you!
