More and more solution providers are integrating with Hortonworks Data Platform to provide their customers with enterprise Hadoop.

As part of our HDP 2.1 certification series, I would like to introduce Greg Benson, Chief Scientist at SnapLogic. In this blog, Greg provides some insights about the value of obtaining HDP 2.1 certification and the benefits of integration platform as a service (iPaaS). 

SnapLogic provides a cloud-based service for performing a wide range of data and application integration tasks.…

We are less than a week away from start of the seventh annual Hadoop Summit San Jose. With all of the final preparations underway, we wish to highlight some of the not to be missed activities in and around the event. The event is filling fast, but you can still register here.

Here are a few things you don’t want to miss!

  •  Great track content—there is more content than ever with more than 120 informative sessions on Apache Hadoop and related technologies for you to choose from and as always selected by the community and delivered by the experts themselves.…
  • As enterprises build new applications with the data they cost effectively capture and process with Apache Hadoop it is important for the platform to facilitate the app dev processes. That’s why we are excited to announce that we’ve expanded our partnership with Concurrent, Inc. to simplify and accelerate application development on Hadoop.

    There are two components to this expanded partnership.

    As the Red Hat Summit shifts to the west coast in San Francisco this year Hortonworks and Red Hat will be demonstrating the progress of our engineering efforts. Our engineers have been hard at work in the factories and in the communities deeply integrating our open source offerings to create a comprehensive platform for new analytic applications. As a reminder in February Red Hat and Hortonworks announced a comprehensive open source initiative to deliver infrastructure solutions to bring 100-percent open source Hadoop to the hybrid cloud.…

    Yesterday our partner Teradata announced a new capability called Teradata QueryGrid that further deepens the integration between the Teradata Data Warehouse and the Hortonworks Data Platform. This announcement is important because it delivers on the promise and the value of the Modern Data Architecture by demonstrating how the two technologies complement each other for the enterprise.

    Teradata pioneered deeper integration with Apache Hadoop through integration with H-Catalog initially with Aster SQL-H and then the Data Warehouse and now they have taken it to the next level with Teradata QueryGrid.…

    Today we are proud to announce that the formation of a terrific partnership with LucidWorks to bring search to the Hortonworks Data Platform. LucidWorks delivers an enterprise-grade search development platform built atop the power of Apache Solr.

    Shared Vision and New Scenarios

    Both LucidWorks and Hortonworks have a shared vision of innovating in open source and delivering it to customers in an enterprise grade platform.

    As part of our continuing mission to build the a completely open, versatile enterprise data platform across many data processing scenarios then Solr offers a simple, yet powerful interface providing advanced search capabilities.…

    We’ve said many times that in order for Apache Hadoop to succeed as the next generation data platform and power the Modern Data Architecture there must be a thriving ecosystem of enterprise vendors around it. It’s been core to our strategy from day one to foster these ecosystem vendors and work collaboratively to make them successful.

    Download our Whitepaper: Hadoop and a Modern Data Architecture.

    Our strategy of delivering enterprise Hadoop  as 100% open source has resulted in close alignment and tight partnerships with a broad Hadoop ecosystem with vendors large and small including major data management leaders like SAP and Teradata.…

    We love to hear examples from the ecosystem of how organizations are benefiting from Hadoop and today Hortonworks partner Microsoft posted a great detailed case study on how one of their partners – Ascribe – is using Microsoft’s HDInsight Service, their cloud based 100% Apache Hadoop service to transform healthcare in the UK.

    Ascribe is a UK based company focused on solutions for the healthcare industry and was an early adopter of HDInsight which is built using the Hortonworks Data Platform.…

    Earlier this week Microsoft announced via their blog that a new version of Windows Azure HDInsight is available in public preview.

    Microsoft recognizes the importance of the technical innovation in and around YARN as well as Hortonworks leadership in this area and we have worked collaboratively to bring Hadoop 2.2 to Azure via our Hortonworks Data Platform 2.0 for Windows release.

    Apache Hadoop YARN is the data operating system for Hadoop and greatly expands the applications possible of this emerging technology by allowing multiple processing frameworks such as streaming or graph processing to plug in natively.…

    We are excited to announce an expansion of our relationship with open source leader Red Hat to a deeper more strategic alliance. The main goal is to help organizations adopt enterprise Apache Hadoop more quickly. This is a natural progression of our relationship with Red Hat because we are so closely aligned around a strategy of innovating in the open and applying enterprise rigor to open source software thereby de-risking it for the enterprise.…

    This guest post from Steve Ratay, Viewpoint Architect, Teradata Corporation

    Teradata’s Unified Data Architecture is a powerful combination of the Teradata Enterprise Data Warehouse, the Aster Discovery Platform, Apache Hadoop (via the Hortonworks Data Platform) and Teradata Enterprise Management tools in a single architecture. 

    If you are Teradata user managing an Enterprise Data Warehouse or Data Discovery platform, chances are that you are using Teradata Viewpoint, a monitoring and management platform for Teradata Systems. …

    Apache Accumulo is gaining momentum in markets such as government, financial services and health care for its enhanced security and performance. Hortonworks has a long history with this technology and has multiple committers to the Accumulo project on staff – at least one of whom literally helped to write the book on Accumulo. This has enabled Hortonworks to provide enterprise support for Accumulo within the Hortonworks Data Platform for some time now.…
