Apache Bigtop is a project for the development of packaging and tests of the Apache Hadoop ecosystem.

The primary goal of Bigtop is to build a community around the packaging and interoperability testing of Hadoop-related projects. This includes testing at various levels (packaging, platform, runtime, upgrade, etc…) developed by a community with a focus on the system as a whole, rather than individual projects.

BigTop makes it easier to deploy Hadoop Ecosystem projects including:

  • Apache Zookeeper

  • Apache Flume

  • Apache HBase

  • Apache Pig

  • Apache Hive

  • Apache Sqoop

  • Apache Oozie

  • Apache Whirr

  • Apache Mahout

  • Apache Solr (SolrCloud)

  • Apache Crunch (incubating)

  • Apache HCatalog

  • Apache Giraph

  • LinkedIn DataFu

  • Cloudera Hue

The list of supported Linux platforms has expanded to include:

  • CentOS/RHEL 5 and 6

  • Fedora 17 and 18

  • SuSE Linux Enterprise 11

  • OpenSUSE 12.2

  • Ubuntu LTS Lucid (10.04) and Precise (12.04)

  • Ubuntu Quantal (12.10)
