Announcing Elastic Hadoop on OpenStack project


Hello community,

At Mirantis within our customer and partner base we see growing demand to
deploy and run Hadoop clusters on OpenStack cloud and manage them via an
OpenStack API.

The main goal of this initiative, codenamed EHO (Elastic Hadoop on
OpenStack), is to create native OpenStack component for fast provisioning
and operating Hadoop clusters on demand.

The key features are as follows:
* Open source;
* Native for OpenStack;
* Support for different Hadoop distributions;
* Fast clusters provisioning (e.g. for deploying Dev or QA environments);
* Elastic MapReduce job execution similar to Amazon EMR

We would appreciate all for your feedback and comments.

If you would like to ask some questions or make proposals, feel free to
reply to this message in OpenStack mailing list or  reach us on #eho irc
channel at freenode. Typically somebody from our team will be online at irc
from 6:00 to 20:00 UTC. You can also contact EHO community directly by
email mailto:eho@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (please, note that your email address
should be registered in launchpad, otherwise your mail will be ignored by
mailing system).

We're going to hold public weekly meetings on Thursday at 18:00 UTC on our
irc channel.

Also we would greatly appreciate if you consider contributing to EHO
project. For both docs and code, simply send us pull requests via github.
