Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] Whirr Project
Date Fri, 16 Apr 2010 05:28:53 GMT
Hi Tom,

This sounds interesting. It would be interesting to look at e.g., how we could take some of
the OODT [1] configurations and use Whirr as a front-end to run them in the cloud. I also
know the folks in Solr are using Zookeeper, so they may benefit from this project as well.

I don't have a huge amount of time since I'm overcommitted at work, and with 2 podlings I'm
participating in (OODT and SIS), but my +1 to move forward with this as it seems useful. I
will try and monitor the lists and if I get the time to help out at some point, I'll bug you
on list ^_^

I would like to propose Whirr as an incubator proposal.

Whirr will be a set of libraries for running cloud services, such as
Hadoop or Cassandra. The initial code (for Hadoop) is hosted as a
Hadoop contrib module, but I believe it would flourish as its own
project with its own community.

The proposal is on the incubator wiki at

We look forward to hearing feedback and questions on the proposal.
Also, we don't have any mentors yet, so please sign up if you are
interested in helping out.
