Apache Ambari

Apache Ambari project is available at Apache Ambari Site

This project is for operations team who are managing, provisioning and monitoring Hadoop clusters. This has intuitive web UI. Ambari does not support windows operating system currently.

There is similar product released by Cloudera called HUE or Hadoop User Experience.

Ambari leverages Ganglia and Nagios for some of it's features.

This is still an incubator project, so expect more activities on this.
