BigTop: the way to grow open Hadoop stack acceptance
BigTop is stepping up in its role as the foundation of a standard Hadoop-based data analytics stack, essentially bringing most of the commercial offering to the standard footing.
Apache Bigtop 0.5.0 has been released
- Apache Zookeeper 3.4.5
- Apache Flume 1.3.0
- Apache HBase 0.94.2
- Apache Pig 0.10.0
- Apache Hive 0.9.0
- Apache Sqoop 1.4.2
- Apache Oozie 3.3.0
- Apache Whirr 0.8.1
- Apache Mahout 0.7
- Apache Solr (SolrCloud) 4.0.0
- Apache Crunch (incubating) 0.4.0
- DataFu 0.0.4
- Hue 2.1.0
- CentOS/RHEL 5 and 6
- Fedora 16 and 17
- SuSE Linux Enterprise 11
- OpenSUSE 12.2
- Ubuntu LTS Lucid and Precise
- Ubuntu Quantal
There is a lot of goodies in this release: SolrCloud, brand new Hue Oozie UI, latest and greatest Flume just to name few. We would like to invite everybody to join the developer community or simply give the binary Bigtop distribution a try. All you have to do is pick your favorite Linux Distro, follow our wiki instructions and you will have your first pseudo distributed cluster computing Pi in no time (on a pseudo distributed cluster the value of Pi is approximately 3.4).
If you're thinking about deploying Bigtop to a fully-distributed cluster you might find our Puppet code to be useful -- after all we use it all the time ourselves to test Bigtop. There is a brief documentation on how to run our Puppet recipes in a master-less puppet configuration, but a typical Puppet master setup should work as well.
Whatever you do, don’t forget to check us out at Apache and consider getting involved. Bigtop is a community-driven effort and we need your help. Of course, above all we need you to use Bigtop and give us your the feedback.
Happy Big Data discoveries,
Your faithful and tireless Bigtop development team!

What is Bigtop, and Why Should You Care?
Ever since Apache Bigtop entered an incubation, we've been answering a very basic question: what exactly is Bigtop and why should you or anyone in the Apache (or Hadoop) community care. The earliest and the most succinct answer (the one used for the Apache Incubator proposal) simply stated that "Bigtop is a project for the development of packaging and tests of the Hadoop ecosystem". That was a nice explanation of how Bigtop relates to the rest of the Apache Software Foundation's (ASF) Hadoop ecosystem projects, yet it doesn't really help you understand the aspirations of Bigtop that go beyond what the ASF has traditionally done.[Read More]

All you wanted to know about Hadoop, but were too afraid to ask: genealogy of elephants.
Lining up versions of Hadoop and making sense of all of them and their relations can be quit difficult.
This article attempts to address the moot points and help you understand the "bigger picture" - literally.
Conception and validation of Hadoop BigData stack.
What is BigTop project? What are the goals and how it is getting to achieve it? What are the roots and founding ideas of the project?
I think you'll find the answers for these questions in what hopefully became a series of helpful posts helping IT professionals with Hadoop stack deployment and adoption.
