Sentry brings in fine-grained authorization support for both data and
metadata in a Hadoop cluster. It is already being used in production systems
to secure the data and provide fine-grained access to its users. It is also
integrated with the version of Hive shipping in CDH (upstream contribution
is pending), Cloudera Impala, and Cloudera Search.
This blog is called myNoSQL and it is written by me, Alex Popescu, a software architect with a passion for open source and communities.
It records my readings, learnings, and opinions on NoSQL databases, polyglot persistence, and distributed systems -- subjects that I'm passionate about.
The opinions expressed here are my own, and no other party necessarily agrees with them.
If you feel I'm biased, I probably am.
