Informatica Cluster Service

Informatica Cluster Service

The Informatica Cluster Service is an application service that runs and manages all the Hadoop services, Apache Ambari server, and Apache Ambari agents on an embedded Hadoop cluster. If you choose the embedded cluster deployment mode, you need to create the Informatica Cluster Service before you create the Catalog Service. Then, you can pass the Informatica Cluster Service value to the Catalog Service.
Informatica Cluster Service distributes the Hortonworks binaries and launches the required Hadoop services on the hosts where the embedded cluster runs.
You can deploy Informatica Cluster Service on hosts where Centrify is enabled. Centrify integrates with an existing Active Directory infrastructure to manage user authentication on remote Linux hosts.
Informatica does not integrate with Centrify to manage or generate keytabs.
You can deploy Informatica Cluster Service on hosts that provide access using JSch SSH encryption algorithms.
