Re: What is the alternatives of parcel

Essentially Ambari uses something called stacks. It is a module that governs one of the services in the cluster with functions to install/start/stop dependencies etc. Unlike parcels Most of the stacks are based on yum/zypper packages under the cover for install which is nice and linux standard.

Not too familiar with parcels but I would think that is more or less the equivalent?

Just to consolidare the comment below, here are some example stacks by @Ali Bajwa

Thank you Benjamin for the update . I guess hortonwork should have some way to create custom stacks and deploy it through Ambari resource manager .

I checked through register version , I could not get any option to add any custom stack and its remote repository. Please help .
