Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache Hama now supports Hadoop YARN; in use at Samsung Electronics

Apache Hama now supports YARN, runs at Samsung Electronics 

The Apache Hama team is pleased to announce that we're now supporting not only the Mesos but
the YARN (thanks to Minho Kim who is a main contributor of YARN module). 

Apache Hama is a High-Performance BSP computing engine, which can be used to perform compute-intensive
general scientific BSP applications, Google's Pregel-like graph applications, and machine
learning algorithms. 

YARN is the resource management technology that lets multiple computing frameworks run on
the same Hadoop cluster using the same underlying storage. So, for example, a company could
analyze the data using MapReduce, Spark, and Apache Hama. 

"From the next release, you'll be able to submit scientific BSP applications to the existing
open source Hadoop, CDH, and HDP clusters without any installation," said Edward J. Yoon (@eddieyoon),
original creator of Apache Hama.

Meanwhile, we're also working on support the HPC environment such as InfiniBand and GPUs —
According to General Dynamics[1], they already proved the 10x performance improvement of Apache
Hama on HPC cluster — and also plan to support deployment and automation configurations
to the Hybrid Clouds for solving various problems of Manufacturing Engineering, Science, Finance,
Research areas. 

This contribution is mainly coming from Samsung Electronics. "Unlike most web services companies,
our challenge is numerical or signal data, not text data. That's why we're investing in High-Performance
computing for scientific advanced analytics," said SeungHun Jeon, a Head of Cloud Tech Lab
at Samsung Electronics. 

"Since we build our own analytics platform in the Cloud by leveraging open source technologies
such as Apache Hadoop, Storm, and Hama, we intend to keep making contributions to the Open
Source communities," added Hyok S. Choi, a Principal Software Engineer at Samsung Electronics.


About Apache Hama 

Apache Hama[2] was established in 2012 as a Top-Level Project of The Apache Software Foundation.
It provides High-Performance BSP[3] computing engine on top of Hadoop.
