Arun Murthy for ZDNet about Apache Slider:
Slider is a framework that allows you to bridge existing always-on services
and makes sure they work really well on top of YARN without having to modify
the application itself. That’s really important.
Right now it’s HBase and Accumulo but it could be Cassandra, it could be
MongoDB, it could be anything in the world. That’s the key part.
I couldn’t find the project on the Incubator page.
