Addressing the Elephant in the Room

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, we are OPEN, we are PUBLIC and we are PROUD.  Hortonworks Data Platform is 100% open source. Hortonworks Data Flow is 100% open source. Apache Metron, the incubating cybersecurity effort Hortonworks is stewarding, is 100% open source.

Our strategy remains committed to 100% open, our products are 100% open, Hortonworks breaks down silos pushes boundaries and enables the entire ecosystem to flourish and innovate.

Will we collaborate with other companies that offer proprietary software? Absolutely. Do we offer proprietary software? Not at all.

There’s been a lot of chatter about who we are and what we do in the last few days. Guys, sometimes a headline is just a headline.

Tomorrow we have some incredible announcements hope you can tune in http://hortonworks.com/march-1/

Comments

  • 100% opensource sounds very good.
    Please know that the initd scripts in the rpms are buggy when installing the rpms manually (without ambari). In the past these scripts were not open sourced by you yet.
    So please point me where I can find the git repo that contains the scripts needed to build the rpms and how I submit a patch.

    Appreciate the comment to our blog post. Hortonworks had focused
    on starting/stopping services manually without Ambari as documented here:

    HDP 2.1:
    http://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/HDP2/HDP-2.1.15/bk_reference/conte
    nt/reference_chap3.html

    In the more recent releases, you can find those same references here:

    HDP 2.2:
    http://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/HDP2/HDP-2.2.8/bk_HDP_Reference_Gu
    ide/content/ch03.html
    HDP 2.3:
    http://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/HDP2/HDP-2.3.4/bk_HDP_Reference_Gu
    ide/content/ch_controlling_hdp_svcs_manually.html
    HDP 2.4 (GA today!):
    http://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/HDP2/HDP-2.4.0/bk_HDP_Reference_Gu
    ide/content/ch_controlling_hdp_svcs_manually.html

    What we¹ve heard over time is that there are customers who really wanted
    to use the init.d scripts originally derived from the Apache BigTop
    project. We have been actively working on these with a couple of those
    customer and addressing some of the issues which you also may have bumped
    into. We would be happy to collaborate with you on this further via
    Hortonworks Community Connection(post a question/link for folks who want
    to discuss init.d??).

    Thank you for your interest and passion for Hadoop!

    • Thanks for the feedback.
      However my core question remains unanswered: Where can I find the git repo for these things?
      From my point of view Hortonworks is great reagarding the focus on opensource. Yet so far you have achieved 99.9% not 100%.
