OneFS 8.0.1 is the
first major upgrade to OneFS 8.0 platform that was released in Feb 2016. While
this upgrade has many generic enhancements to the storage side of OneFS, there
are four major functionalities related to Hadoop
Supports Ambari 2.4
This is the first major release of OneFS that will have support for Ambari 2.4. Hortonworks
had released HDP 2.5 and Ambari 2.4 at end of Aug 2016. Since then Isilon team had been working to
integrate Ambari 2.4 with OneFS. With
the release one OneFS 801, customers can now use Ambari 2.4 and HDP 2.5
more instructions on how to configure, see the below link :
Though OneFS has been supporting Ambari for a few
releases, it was not leveraging the metrics capabilities as yet. So customers were not able to make use of Ambari metrics server With OneFS 801, OneFS host
metrics and alerts will be integrated in Ambari. This will help customers to proactively monitor key
performance metrics and alerts for OneFS through single management window i.e.

Integration with Ranger deny first policy framework
major enhancement in OneFS 801 is related to access permissions to the
801 is now integrated with Apache Ranger to
provide additional layer of security to provide stricter control and deny
access to the files and directories to users and groups. This has been made possible by using Deny policy that was added
in Ranger 0.6.0 release and is available in HDP 2.5. By default, the deny policy in Ranger Admin UI is turned off.

enable Deny Policy and use it with OneFS
