Hortonworks Develops, Distributes and Supports Enterprise Apache Hadoop.
Develop: Hortonworks was formed by the key architects, builders and operators from the Yahoo! Hadoop software engineering team that led the effort to design and build every major release of Apache Hadoop from 0.1 to the most current stable release, contributing more than 80% of the code along the way.
While we continue our focus on innovating the core of Apache Hadoop, we also ensure that all of the capabilities required to make Apache Hadoop Enterprise Grade are developed and available in the Open Source community.
- Data Services required to Store, Analyze and Access data
- Operational Services required to manage and operate Hadoop
- Platform Services such as High Availability, snapshots and more that are required to make Apache Hadoop Enterprise grade
Distribute: We provide a 100% Open Source Distribution of Apache Hadoop, adding the required Operational, Data and Platform services from the open source community in the Hortonworks Data Platform HDP). This Distribution of Apache Hadoop is endorsed by some of the most respected partners in the industry including Microsoft, Teradata and more.
