In my previous blog, I talked about the significance of multitenancy and how YARN (yet another resource negotiator) is an important development for organizations deploying Hadoop environments. Here I will discuss about some of the advance and most effective multitenant distributed computing solutions offered by IBM that help our customers build a true multitenant infrastructures. In addition to standard capabilities in Hadoop, IBM offers a solution called IBM Platform Symphony profiled by Gartner Research here. IBM Platform Symphony was designed from day one to support multitenancy with all the capabilities that this entails including security isolation, service level guarantees, chargeback accounting and dynamic resource sharing subject to policy. While IBM Platform Symphony supports your chosen Hadoop distribution along IBM’s own Hadoop offerings, we take a broader view. IBM Platform Computing supports not only Hadoop workloads, but a huge catalog of additional applications as well – service-oriented applications, batch workloads, process-oriented workloads, MPI applications as well as various long-running service frameworks.
IBM has been delivering multitenant distributed computing solutions for over ten years. We are proud that 12 of the top 20 global investment banks have deployed IBM Platform Symphony to manage their multitenant infrastructure. If you are struggling with hosting multiple Hadoop versions or instances on a common foundation we may have the answer.
