Project Savanna Moves Ahead: Red Hat and Hortonworks are on board

Boris Renski - April 16, 2013

Within the last week, Project Savanna took two significant steps forward.

First, today we announced, with Hortonworks and Red Hat, a commitment to work together on the project to deliver Apache Hadoop on OpenStack.

If you read our blog post here on April 1, you know some of the history and details of the Savanna project and its use cases. Mirantis originally developed the Savanna project because we saw a need for Hadoop provisioning and management frameworks that would help users quickly and simply deploy big data Hadoop workloads on OpenStack.

We’re very glad to welcome Hortonworks and Red Hat to this effort.

Second, we’ve released the first stable version of Savanna, which completes the first phase of the project. The functionality of the first phase includes:

  • Cluster provisioning
  • Deployment Engine implementation for pre-installed images
  • Templates for Hadoop cluster configuration
  • REST API for cluster startup and operations
  • UI integrated into Horizon

We presented Savanna during the Unconference at the OpenStack summit Monday, April 15.
