Cloudera support for docker container

Cloudera support for docker container

Contributor

Hi Cloudera,

 

Recently my org is considering Docker. Our group is cloudera CDH 5.1.2. 

 

1) Does cloudera compatable with Docker container?

2) Is there any issue related to docker and cloudera combination?

 

I could not find any topic on docker in this forum. 

 

Any pointer would be helpful.

 

Thanks,

Amit

I read through what docker is, yesterday.  I do not think this has been tested, there are a number of platform virtualization projects in progress, but I did not see this on the list.

 

Lookt at its intent, it might work but you would definately want to test.  The thing I'm concearned about is the level of effort to normalize between distribution types as there are a large volume of subcomponents that are brought directly into the CDH "Parcel" that are platform specific.

 

You might be able to get a CM server and agents deployed in a generic way, but then you would want CM to manage the deployment of CDH parcel across the target "cluster" once it was online, rather than abstracting that install as well.
