Works on different VM/physical, cloud hardware
In case you want to do a scalability based on the VMware architecture, the way to go will be VMware vSphere™ Big Data Extensions:
The benefits to do this are phenomenal, which we can list as follows:
- Rapid provisioning: Virtualization allows very sophisticated facilities like cloning, templates, resource allocation and optimizations, speed of deployment. A large scale distributed Hadoop/HBase cluster which is deployed on multiple nodes and can scale on demand and downscale as needed.
- High Availability (HA) and Fault Tolerance: By design hadoop/HBase ecosystem comes with HA as the underlying layer is HDFS but some of the core components of the system like
HBase master, secondary
