Apache Hadoop Bigtop Project

The Apache Hadoop Bigtop project  runs interoperability tests on stacks of Hadoop components (the Hadoop-related projects also called Hadoop ecosystem) and provides Linux RPMs and Debian packages for a piece of mind installation. The main goal of Bigtop is to build community with the ultimate aim of packaging a combination of components that work well together, therefore the emphasis is on a system as whole rather than individual projects. Although Cloudera and Hortonworks already provide Hadoop distributions, that are suites of compatible components, Bigtop is an excellence resource for selecting the right Hadoop ecosystem components.
