Introduction to Oracle Big Data Cloud Service – Compute Edition (Part III) – Ambari

This is my third blog post about Oracle Big Data Cloud Service – Compute Edition. I continue to guide you about the “Big Data Cloud Service – Compute Edition” and its components. In this blog post, I will introduce Ambari – the management service of our hadoop cluster.

The Apache Ambari simplifies provisioning, managing, and monitoring Apache Hadoop clusters. It’s the default management tool of Hortonworks Data Platform but it can be used independently from Hortonworks. After you create your big data service, SSH and 8080 (port used by Ambari) is blocked. You need to enable the rules to allow access through these ports. In my first blog post about Oracle Big Data Cloud Service – Compute Edition, I showed how to enable these ports.
