VMware Updates Serengeti
VMware unveiled an update to Project Serengeti, its software for running Hadoop in virtualized environments.
Serengeti allows deployment of standard Apache Hadoop clusters on a virtual platform, with no need to buy additional hardware or software.
The company said the new version supports vSphere, VMware's cloud computing virtualization operating system. The project is endorsed by all major Hadoop distributions including Cloudera, Greenplum, Hortonworks and MapR.
The new version of Serengeti offers Dynamic Elastic Scaling, a community contributed user interface and the ability to configure infrastructure topologies.
