Most Hadoop deployments to date have met the needs of multiple user groups (aka tenants) through a “shared nothing” model, with siloed physical infrastructure that often results in low utilization and high management overhead.

However, as enterprises build out and expand their Hadoop clusters, there is an increasing imperative to provide secure multi-tenant environments with shared infrastructure – to improve business agility, reduce overhead, and improve utilization.

There is a Hadoop reference architecture for multi-tenancy on a single physical cluster based on YARN. But in real-world scenarios, where multiple versions and/or different distributions of Hadoop need to co-exist with strict isolation, this model is a non-starter. Another challenge with this approach is the fact that complex, time-consuming configurations are required to maintain compute and data isolation between tenants.

To meet today’s enterprise requirements, a secure multi-tenant Hadoop architecture must accommodate multiple user groups, multiple concurrent Hadoop jobs, multiple applications, multiple versions and/or distributions of Hadoop, security isolation, and service level guarantees while utilizing shared infrastructure.

This session will discuss these requirements and provide recommendations on how to deploy a secure multi-tenant, multi-cluster Hadoop environment.
