Tashi: Your Faithful Cluster Manager
Apache Tashi

Road Map

Before an initial release

  • Demonstrate the ability to run HDFS on a set of hosts and the Hadoop JobTrackers in virtual machines while maintaining data-local performance: Done at CMU in 2010.
  • Integrate with Zoni: Done by Richard Gass
  • Have at least a rudimentary resource log to permit billing: Done by Michael Stroucken

Current issues

  • Provide ACLs for disk images
  • Support F10 switches in Zoni: Michael Stroucken


  • Continue work on EC2 interface, permit use of EC2 management utils
  • Add support for authentication services
  • Add support for at least one slice-based virtual machine manager
  • Design a "disk broker" architecture: Richard Gass


Apache Tashi is an effort undergoing incubation at The Apache Software Foundation (ASF), sponsored by the Apache Incubator PMC. Incubation is required of all newly accepted projects until a further review indicates that the infrastructure, communications, and decision making process have stabilized in a manner consistent with other successful ASF projects. While incubation status is not necessarily a reflection of the completeness or stability of the code, it does indicate that the project has yet to be fully endorsed by the ASF.
