Differences between HDFS+Ranger and HDFS+ACLs

Differences between HDFS+Ranger and HDFS+ACLs

Explorer

Hi,

Just wondering what is the main difference between using Apache Ranger with HDFS and HDFS with Hadoop ACL's? Is there anything extra that Ranger can do but ACL's can't? Is just the friendly UI so you don't need to run the command on the console to manage the permissions?

Thanks!
