What is Apache Sentry?
Apache Sentry is a system for defining and enforcing fine-grained authorization against Hadoop resources. Use Sentry to control and enforce privileges on data for authenticated users and applications in a Hadoop cluster. It supports different data models with a modular architecture
WANdisco LiveData Platform enables a LiveData strategy consistent data everywhere, spanning platforms and locations, even for changing data at petabyte scale. Business critical data is guaranteed consistent, always available, and accessible from anywhere.
What is WANdisco LiveData Sentry Plugin?
Replicate Apache Sentry policies across clusters
The WANdisco LiveData Sentry Plugin coordinates and replicates Sentry policies across clusters to maintain common policy enforcement in each. Use it to ensure consistent policy definition and enforcement across multiple clusters that share access to the same data with WANdisco LiveData Platform.WANdisco is shaping the future of data infrastructure with our ground-breaking LiveData Platform, enabling companies to finally put all their data to work for the business—all the time, at any scale. We make data available, accurate and protected across environments including on-premises and cloud, regardless of distance and data source. We do this at hyperscale to support exponential data growth within the same IT budget.Read the docs
Changes made to Apache Sentry policies can be enforced consistently across separate clusters.
Change Sentry policies in any cluster to enforce access to cluster resources with the same authorization rights in each environment.
Resolve inconsistent policy state from network failures between clusters automatically.
Support role-based authorization for multiple groups that need access to the same data in different locations or clusters.
