Are you thinking of adopting Apache Spark but you do not know how you can integrate with the existing security framework? Or are you an existing user of Apache Spark who is only looking for multi-tenancy and management capabilities offered by IBM Spectrum Conductor with Spark, and want the same open-source feel to your Spark cluster? With IBM Spectrum Conductor with Spark v2.2.1, setting up a Spark cluster of your desired security settings for users is easier than ever.
With prior versions of IBM Spectrum Conductor with Spark, security settings for users were found in different configuration parameters. Now, with IBM Spectrum Conductor with Spark v2.2.1, it is as simple as configuring the desired cluster-wide authentication protocol, and selecting or unselecting two check-boxes in the cluster management console when you create or modify a Spark instance group.
You are new to both Apache Spark and Spectrum products, and are looking for a quick solution to have a Spark cluster that integrates with the existing Kerberos framework at a company.
