Apache Hadoop YARN is a sub-project of Hadoop at the Apache Software Foundation introduced in Hadoop 2.0 that target to run different types of workloads, all sharing a common resource management platform. Over the past two years, we've tried to integrate some other frameworks like OpenMPI to YARN, we encountered limitations for YARN to support different workloads beyond map-reduce.

This talk will describe 3 areas on how to make YARN to support complicated workloads other than map-reduce.
1) An improvement for flexible container resource management, thus will make application can dynamically increase and decrease resource of a running process.
2) An extended service container to run/manage daemon/service processes in each node.
3) Our thoughts to support new opportunities like virtualized platform support, etc. upon improvements we've done to YARN.
