Integrating Hue with LDAP can help make your secure Hadoop apps as widely consumed as possible.
Hue, the open source Web UI that makes Apache Hadoop easier to use, easily integrates with your corporation’s existing identity management systems and provides authentication mechanisms for SSO providers. So, by changing a few configuration parameters, your employees can start analyzing Big Data in their own browsers under an existing security policy.
The Search team at Cloudera has spent some time completing a long standing Solr JIRA issue, SOLR-1301: Add a Solr contrib that allows for building Solr indexes via Hadoop's Map-Reduce. The new module has just hit Solr trunk (5x) and is ready for users to start checking out. Early feedback can help out smooth out any rough edges before we start promising backwards compatibility.
If you are interested in building indexes with MapReduce, it would be great if you tried out the new module and reported back any feedback.
To make it easier for users to try things out and learn how to use the new module, I have created a new GitHub project with a simple script that downloads and sets up Hadoop and Solr and runs the MapReduce job that is the center of the new module. You just run the start-example.sh script (OSX or Linux currently), wait for it to finish, and then hit localhost:8983/solr to search for the indexed documents.

Tsssss! That’s the sound of Hadoop. It’s today’s sizzling-hot data management platform because it: 1) offers
lower-cost storage than traditional systems, 2) has open source innovation, 3) can scale nicely, as its
distributed file system makes it suitable for storing and processing big data, and 4) has opened firms’ eyes
again to the power and profit potential of data. In Forrester’s 32-criteria evaluation of big data Hadoop
solutions, we evaluated nine solutions from Amazon Web Services (AWS), Cloudera, Hortonworks, IBM,
Intel, MapR Technologies, Microsoft, Pivotal Software, and Teradata. This report details our findings about
how well each solution fulfills the criteria, shows where the vendors stand in relation to each other, and
helps technology management professionals select the right Hadoop solution for their business needs.
