The Hortonworks Blog

More from John Kreisa

It’s been a busy few weeks here at Hortonworks and much of that busyness comes from all of the things we’ve been doing with our partners. This has been a stretch of time that we’ve affectionately been calling May-magedon with 9 major partner related events in a two and a half week span. We love telling the story of of the transformative nature of Apache Hadoop along with the increasing pervasiveness of enterprise Hadoop driven through a vibrant ecosystem.…

Spannende Big-Data-Projekte von „Atlas“ bis „Zeppelin“

Anwendervorträge:

Für einen spannenden Einstieg werden Florian Herrmann und Daniel Schmitt von der Fiducia IT AG sorgen: Sie demonstrieren, wie die Volks- und Raiffeisenbanken eine Lambda-Architektur zur Erkennung von Betrugsversuchen umgesetzt haben.…

This week we are participating in the Microsoft Ignite conference in Chicago. Microsoft Ignite focuses on all Microsoft technologies and professionals and we are excited to demonstrate all of the ways we’ve been working with Microsoft to Do Hadoop together. As a long time Microsoft partner we are glad to be participating in this event for the 3rd year in a row showing of a history of joint engineering and commitment to the Microsoft platforms and users.…

Hortonworks introduces HDP Operations Ready, HDP Security Ready and HDP Governance Ready certifications to showcase solutions that deeply integrate with enterprise Hadoop.

Customer adoption of Apache Hadoop continues to accelerate the pace at which the community works to meet the requirements of Enterprise Hadoop. Once the place of HDFS and MapReduce only, the introduction of Apache Hadoop YARN a little over a year ago has unleashed many new ways to get value from a Hadoop cluster.…

As more organizations consider the cloud as a component of their Apache Hadoop deployments, we can look to our partners for a range of solutions designed to meet these needs. This is the first post in a series on partner solutions available for deploying Hadoop in the cloud. We will build on the Hybrid deployment post with general use cases for Hadoop in a Hybrid cloud. Through our partners we have broad set of options for the cloud available today spanning on-premises, virtual and cloud-based deployments.…

Arsalan Tavakoli-Shiraji, customer engagement lead overseeing business development activities at Databricks, is our guest blogger today. In this blog, he discusses our expanded partnership built around Apache Spark on Apache Hadoop in three areas: customers, engineering, and open source.

Today Databricks and Hortonworks are announcing an expanded partnership built around Apache Spark; allow me to explain why we’re thrilled to be embarking on this journey with them.

When we started Databricks last summer, Apache Spark was in the early stages of enterprise adoption.…

More and more enterprises are looking to the cloud as a place to handle a variety of their data processing and backup needs. Apache Hadoop lends itself to running in cloud environments because of the alignment around scalability and flexibility for compute and storage offered with today’s cloud infrastructures. Today, we are excited to announce that the Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) is the first platform to be certified to run on Azure Infrastructure as a Service.…

Since our founding over three years ago, a core part of our strategy has been on enabling the enterprise to use Hadoop in the context of their existing technologies via a Modern Data Architecture. From the earliest days of the company when we hired Mitch Ferguson to head our business development efforts, we’ve been working closely with data center ecosystem leaders, large and small, to integrate Hadoop so that it can take it’s place in the next generation data architecture.…

In this partner guest blog, John Haddad, senior director of product marketing at Infomatica, explains and enumerates how Stinger.next’s key innovations in Enterprise SQL at Hadoop scale will augment Informatica’s Big Data Edition integration with Hortonworks’ Modern Data Architecture.

Informatica is excited about the new innovations Hortonworks is including in the Stinger.next project such as Hive transactions, Hive-Spark integration, and sub-second queries. The Informatica Big Data Edition helps our customers take advantage of these new innovations without having to rebuild their data pipelines for Big Data analytics.…

Big data growth continues to be a major consumer of enterprise IT resources with no end in sight. To gain value out of this data, organizations are creating new analytic applications for their business users. This growth in data and applications impacts hardware, networking and software resource consumption in the data center. CIOs are looking for ways to future proof their data management infrastructure and to be more efficient about how they monitor and manage their Apache Hadoop clusters.…

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.…
