Hadoop and Canonical Bring MapR to Ubuntu

Some announcements from MapR about “MapR and Canonical bringing Hadoop Support to Ubuntu“:

First, MapR is partnering with Canonical, the organization behind the Ubuntu operating system, to package and make available for download an integrated offering of MapR Distibution with Ubuntu. The free MapR M3 Edition includes HBase, Pig, Hive, Mahout, Cascading, Sqoop, Flume and other Hadoop support tools. MapR is the only distribution that enables Linux applications and commands to access data directly in the cluster via the NFS interface that is available with all MapR Editions.

As far as I know, Apache Hadoop works just fine on Ubuntu. And there was already a partnership between Cloudera and Canonical to bring Hadoop to Ubuntu. So, I guess my title might be more accurate.

Ubuntu One Drops CouchDB as Foundation of Data Sync

From the Ubuntu mailing list:

From the first days of Ubuntu One, before we were even in Ubuntu, we’ve had a structured data storage sync service based around CouchDB.

For the last three years we have worked with the company behind CouchDB to make it scale in the particular ways we need it to scale in our server environment. Our situation is rather unique, and we were unable to resolve some of the issues we came across. We were thus unable to make CouchDB scale up to the millions of users and databases we have in our datacentres, and furthermore we were unable to make it scale down to be a reasonable load on small client machines.

Because of this, we are turning off most of our CouchDB-related efforts. […]

For these same three years we have created and maintained desktopcouch, which is a desktop service (and related library) to access CouchDB more conveniently. Because we are no longer going to pursue CouchDB, we will no longer be developing desktopcouch;

CouchDB Twitter account’s only comment:

Reports of my death are greatly exaggerated.

I’m filing this under what happened to CouchDB popularity.

CouchDB: The Most Widely Distributed, NoSQL Open Source DB

What open source DB is shipped along with Ubuntu and so is on millions of computers today? If you guessed MySQL you lose. If you guessed CouchDB you are today’s lucky winner.  Yes, thats right, CouchDB is shipped with every version of Ubuntu and in terms of computers with it loaded on may be the biggest of the open source databases.

Make sure you are reading the comment thread (better than the rest of the article even).

Canonical and Riptano Partnering on Cassandra

Canonical, the company sponsoring Ubuntu, has announced a new round of partnership which also lists Riptano, the company offering Cassandra technical support, professional services, and training. The PR announcement can be found ☞ here.

While there aren’t any details on this partnership, I assume it works something like this: if you need professional services for running Cassandra on Ubuntu, then Canonical will direct you to Riptano. Which kind of makes sense considering Riptano is at this time the only company offering services for Cassandra.

CouchDB and Ubuntu: Configuration trick for

Views running slow with high CPU utilization on Ubuntu?

I had the same problem. The solution is simple and it already mentioned on CounDB-Wiki.

Simply create a file: $ sudo gedit /etc/

and paste path to the library of xulrunner and xulrunner-devel and !save it!


in your case it’s a

The next step is to run ldconfig $ sudo /sbin/ldconfig

Also read the ‘Note on installing on Ubuntu Desktop flavors’ section on Wiki.

Then let it start at system-boot $ sudo update-rc.d couchdb defaults

If you get a message that system-start for couchdb is already exist, simple remove the old entry: $ sudo update-rc.d -f couchdb remove and now retry to add the couchdb to system-start

Hadoop: Cluster Deploy on EC2/UEC Using Puppet and Ubuntu

Once the initial setup of the Puppet master is done and the Hadoop Namenode and Jobtracker are up and running adding new Hadoop Workers is just one command:

./ worker

Puppet automatically configures them to join the Hadoop Cluster.

But explaining how to set up the Puppet master, Hadoop Namenode and Jobtracker resulted in a very long post. It also looks like there are two versions for the Puppet recipe: Adobe’s for Hadoop/HBase deployments and ☞ some code on Launchpad

Canonical, Ubuntu and NoSQL

Separately, sources close to Canonical have told The Reg that the company is in talks with Cassandra and CouchDB on NoSQL, and start-up PuppetLabs for data-center automation and provisioning.


Canonical is targeting Hadoop and NoSQL – used by hyperscale providers like Yahoo! and Facebook – believing ordinary businesses are now ready to start use them for data processing and analytics.

Having in mind that both Hadoop and Cassandra are meant to be used in distributed systems, I’m wondering what exactly will Canonical offer by including these in Ubuntu? (note the secret sauce may be Puppet).
