Arenadata Cluster Manager

The Arenadata Cluster Manager (ADCM) intuitive interface simplifies cluster installation and start-up, while its centralized entry point allows you to control and audit user access and activity across all clusters.
ADCM allows clusters to be installed, configured, and updated via the graphical interface or via API requests. All operating system services are configured automatically. The benefits of ADCM are fully demonstrated when dealing with heterogeneous infrastructure – you have the option of placing data services at various infrastructure objects: clouds, on-premises, or PaaS services.
Use cases
Cluster deployment and management

Deploy clusters easily and manage them centrally. The installation process reduces deployment time from weeks to minutes; provides a single centralised user interface for making configuration changes to your clusters; provides granular visibility and control over each type of resource.

Automation for SaaS platforms

Today, many organisations are deploying clusters in the cloud to reduce cost and increase efficiency. ADCM supports REST API to simplify interaction with various hostproviders and automate pipelines.

Features
Easy to use
ADCM is delivered as a container. All you have to do is simply download it from the public registry and run it using Docker. At the same time, ADCM provides an opportunity to use an external database to achieve greater reliability.
One tool to manage all clusters
Manage different clusters and hosts, configure user access and rights from a centralized entry point. ADCM allows you to simplify such complex operations as cluster expansion or simultaneous update of all cluster components. ADCM cluster provides a flexible role-based access control model to delimit access rights for the objects managed.
Heterogeneous infrastructure
Manage on-premises hosts as well as cloud environments. ADCM allows you to use hosts of various cloud providers including Yandex Compute Cloud, Google Compute Engine, VK Cloud, VCloud, and others.
Audit
Audit all activities such as login attempts, operations performed on objects by users, and system background operations.
Authentication
ADCM supports basic and LDAP-compatible authentication services. This gives the necessary flexibility to choose the authentication method that best suits the client's needs.
RBAC
Allows to assign specific permissions to clusters or services. The role constructor enables to combine permissions into roles in order to give options to the end user.
Maintenance mode
Allows temporary isolation of unhealthy components or hosts so that they do not affect the health of the cluster.
Open-source
No vendor lock. ADCM is open-source software distributed under the ASF 2.0 licence.
