This week, we announced the launch of Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) 1.3 for Windows which brings our native Windows Hadoop distribution to parity with our Linux distribution. HDP for Windows is also the Hadoop foundation for Microsoft’s HDInsight Service which delivers Hadoop and BI capabilities in in the Azure cloud.
Impetus, a Hortonworks System Integrator partner, is an early adopter of the Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) and has leveraged the combined power of Hadoop & Microsoft Azure platform for a number of successful big data implementations using Microsoft’s HDInsight Service.

Our customers indicate that they have derived significant business value leveraging the power of Hadoop in the Cloud. Impetus-led implementations have used Hadoop MapReduce jobs as well as Mahout on top of HDInsight for Data-Analytics such as Recommendations, Clustering and Classification.
A few example use cases from our customer implementations successfully using HDInsight include:
The environments used included:
The administrative and deployment tools available with the HDInsight platform have helped Impetus to quickly conceptualize and implement solutions that deliver business value to enterprises. We are very enthusiastic about the new HDP v 1.3 for Windows release and have already started tapping the power of this upgrade in implementing solutions for customers.
