Subject Question about Ranger architecture
Date Tue, 13 Jan 2015 08:46:13 GMT
Good morning,

We are planning to use Ranger to secure our (Hortonworks based)  
datalake at ING Bank. In this context, a few questions came up:

- I read that Ranger deploys plugins to the HDFS, Hive, and HBase  
services that implement access control. Do these plugins run as  
separate processes or more like dynamic libraries inside the main  
- What happens if one of the plugins goes down or becomes unavailable?  
Will the services then be unsecured, or closed to all, or even unable  
to run?

Kind regards,
Hellmar Becker
