Is it possible to use KTS cluster to serve multiple Hadoop clusters?
From KTS architecture, I see non reason it can not serve multiple clusters. All it does is to provide KeyProvider client API for clients to call, and the clients can be from any where. Could any one in Cloudera confirm?
As per the documentation and architecture you can use KTS server which can managed outside the cluster. So I believe you can use the one KTS cluster to manage multiple Hadoop clusters. I'm going to test this setup in couple of weeks (I will update this thread) but this is possible as far as I remember. But answers from Cloudera team will be apprecaited.
I would not recommend this setup for a couple of reasons.
If you are trying this in a dev/qa cluster, it is not such a huge worry. But do take into consideration the different security and administrative aspects of sharing a Key Trustee Server.
