Our challenge was to create a web application for DevOps to visualize the performance of each Hadoop cluster that operates within the United States. Additionally, there was a need to be able to easily locate the point of contact for each server, where its located specifically, and the overall metrics of each server.
As one of the lead designers, I helped create the initial concepts, wireframes, interaction flow, prototypes, and final visual concepts. The solution resulted in a drill down approach. At each state the user can visualize increased levels of information, but the general overview remains viewable as well. To increase usability, the server locations were displayed in either a map, or list view. To create flexibility, we designed two ways to examine the data- either by browsing or through a global search.
