Ecosystem Packs

An Ecosystem Pack (EEP) provides a set of ecosystem components that work together on one or more data-fabric cluster versions. Each EEP contains only one version of an ecosystem component. For example, each EEP supports only one version of Hive and one version of Spark.

HPE creates a new EEP version when a new ecosystem component is available or a patch is applied to an ecosystem component that is already in a released EEP.

A single version of core can support multiple EEPs, but only one at a time. For detailed information about each EEP, see Ecosystem Pack (EEP) Reference. For a list of currently supported EEPs, see EEP Support and Lifecycle Status.

Hadoop Ecosystem and Monitoring Components

Hadoop ecosystem components within an EEP undergo extensive interoperability testing to validate that the components can work together. Examples of Hadoop ecosystem components include Hive, Pig, Spark, and Oozie.

The following open-source components are included in the EEP for monitoring and logging use cases, but NOT for third-party use cases:
  • Collectd
  • Elasticsearch
  • Fluentd
  • Grafana
  • Kibana
  • OpenTSDB
Developer previews for fast-moving ecosystem components continue to be available in addition to EEPs. However, developer preview releases of ecosystem components are not tested for production environments, and they do not undergo the same interoperability testing.

For more information, see the EEP Release Notes.
