re: Cloudera Brings Role-Based Security To Hadoop
Technology such as the Sentry technology from Cloudera is crucial when it comes to data management and security, and I am actually kind of surprised that the Hadoop clusters havenG«÷t had these kinds of security access applications. Having the options to assign role-based security privileges to information will be beneficial to all Hadoop users and administrators and should contribute to their growing popularity.

re: Cloudera Brings Role-Based Security To Hadoop
After press time, Hortonworks offered the following statement about Sentry from Shaun Connolly, VP of Corporate Strategy at Hortonworks:

"The capabilities that Cloudera is targeting make sense and are valuable. Since Cloudera Sentry (previously called Cloudera Access Server) plugs into HiveServer2, including it into the Apache Hive project would make logical sense. With that said, by
separating this work from Apache Hive, Cloudera is introducing a new authorization
model for ClouderaG«™not 'for Hadoop.' Unfortunately Sentry's broader community benefit may be limited. Hortonworks engineers working within the Apache Hive community are open to working with Cloudera on integrating these capabilities directly into the Apache Hive project."

See my concluding comments above about a single approach to security being something that would be for the good of all Hadoop users and distributors.
