Open source Crowbar code now available for Hadoop


Earlier this month we announced that Dell would be open sourcing the Crowbar “barclamps” for Hadoop.  Well today is the day and the code is now available at our github repo.

Whats a Crowbar barclamp?

If you haven’t heard of project Crowbar it’s a software framework developed at Dell that started out as an installation tool for OpenStack.  As the project grew beyond installation to include monitoring capabilities, network discovery, performance data gathering etc., the developers behind it, Rob Hirschfeld and Greg Althaus, decided to rewrite it to allow modules to plug into the basic Crowbar functionality.  These modules or “barclamps” allow the framework to be used by a variety of projects.  Besides the OpenStack and Hadoop barclamps written by Dell, VMware created a Cloud Foundry barclamp and DreamHost created a Ceph barclamp.

To help you get your bearings

As I mentioned in the opening  paragraph, the code for the Hadoop barclamp is now available.  To help you get started, below are a couple of videos that Rob put together.  The first walks you through how to install Crowbar and the second one explains how to use Crowbar to deploy Hadoop.
