VMware Launches Serengeti Hadoop Virtualization Project

eWeek: VMware has announced several new initiatives related to the Hadoop open source big data processing platform. First, VMware is launching Serengeti, a new open source project that aims to make it easier to deploy and manage Hadoop in virtualized or cloud environments. In addition, VMware is adding enhancements to Spring for Apache Hadoop. It is also contributing code to the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) and Hadoop MapReduce projects to make them “virtualization-aware.”

“Apache Hadoop has the potential to transform business by allowing enterprises to harness very large amounts of data for competitive advantage,” VMware’s Jerry Chen. “It represents one dimension of a sweeping change that is taking place in applications, and enterprises are looking for ways to incorporate these new technologies into their portfolios. VMware is working with the Apache Hadoop community to allow enterprise IT to deploy and manage Hadoop easily in their virtual and cloud environments.”
