This project is aimed at making Hadoop management simpler by developing software for provisioning, managing, and monitoring Apache Hadoop clusters. It provides an intuitive, easy-to-use Hadoop management web UI backed by its RESTful APIs. On the other hand, Zookeeper is detailed as "Because coordinating distributed systems is a Zoo". A centralized service for maintaining configuration information, naming, providing distributed synchronization, and providing group services. All of these kinds of services are used in some form or another by distributed applications.
