Chapter 3. High Availability for HDP Master Services Using VMware

This document is intended for system administrators for configuring the Hadoop NameNode (NN) and JobTracker (JT) services for High Availability and also for configuring clients and other Hadoop services to be resilient while the NameNode or JobTracker fails over.

The Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) High Availability (HA) kit for VMware provides enterprise grade high availability of the NameNode and JobTracker Service as part of the HDP cluster.

To learn more, see HDP's Full-Stack HA Architecture.
