Challenges in Offering Hadoop as a Service in Cloud

Mayank Ajuja, Hadoop Hacker, Quoble

The cloud reduces the barrier to entry for many small and medium size enterprises into analytics. Hadoop and related frameworks like Hive, Oozie, Sqoop are becoming tools of choice for deriving insights from data. However, these frameworks were designed for in-house data-centers which have different tradeoffs from a cloud environment and making them run well in the cloud presents some challenges. We've extended Hadoop to scale cluster size depending on workload. Furthermore, the scaling algorithm exploits different pricing models offered by cloud providers. Cloud storage is extremely reliable but has higher latency. We've also included I/O optimizations to reduce or eliminate some of these I/O costs. In this talk, we describe the challenges behind offering Hadoop as a service in cloud.
