The Sahara project (ex. Savanna), integrated project in Juno under the OpenStack Data Processing program, provides users an ability to provision and manage Hadoop clusters on OpenStack, and has seen a great deal of progress, development, and changes during the Icehouse development cycle. The focus of the project is on two primary use cases: on-demand cluster provisioning and on-demand Hadoop task execution (Elastic Data Processing).

In this talk, we will provide an overview of project Sahara, its main goals and focus, and a tour of new features introduced in the Icehouse cycle. These features include: integration with Heat, basic API tests in Tempest, enabled asynchronous gate, and bunch of new Elastic Data Processing (EDP) features. We’ll also discuss new Hortonworks Data Platform plugin features, data-locality support, and the ability to use Sahara through the command line. Finally, we will discuss the roadmap for the Juno release.

After attending this session, you will have a good understanding for where Sahara is now and where it’s going, particularly with regard to the Unified Agent approach, on which we’re currently working on leveraging in Sahara
