Almost time to spend a relaxing weekend in the garden, or crushing some data in your garage-based homebrew Hadoop cluster – whichever you prefer. But before we choose our path, let’s take a look at the last two weeks of happenings (I was lost in Oregon last week).

Hadoop is the perfect app for OpenStack. While I was struggling with driving directions, Red Hat, Marantis and Hortonworks were announcing plans for Project Savanna which aims to automate the deployment of Hadoop on enterprise-class OpenStack-powered clouds. …

On April 2nd, Hortonworks was excited to host the very first Apache Ambari Meetup. Thanks to all those who came along in person and virtually for a lot of vibrant discussion. If you would like to get involved in future Ambari Meetups, please visit this link. We are well on the way to making Hadoop management ‘dead simple’.

We have embedded the sessions below with some notes:

Overview and Demo of Ambari, Yusaku Sako, Hortonworks

  • This session covered Apache Ambari’s mission to “Make Hadoop management dead simple”, Ambari’s 4 major roles: 1) Provision, 2) Manage, 3) Monitor, and 4) Integrate, emphasized that everything that Ambari’s Web Client does is done thru Ambari’s REST API (100% REST), presented high-level architecture, and a live demo on how to provision, manage, and monitor a Hadoop cluster using the latest Ambari 1.2.2 release.

Check out our new knowledgebase article on Ambari on EC2. With these instructions, you can boot an EC2 Apache Hadoop cluster in minutes using Ambari.

Hot on the heels of the release of the new version of Sandbox, I thought it would be worth a look at Ambari as it is now integrated into the Sandbox VM. You can download the Hortonworks Sandbox and try it out for yourself!

Apache Ambari is a web-based tool for provisioning, managing, and monitoring Apache Hadoop clusters. It greatly simplifies and reduces the complexity of running Apache Hadoop. Ambari is a fully open-source, Apache project and graphical interface to Hadoop.…

Over the course of 2012, through Hortonworks’ leadership within the Apache Ambari community we have seen the rapid creation of an enterprise-class management platform required for enabling Apache Hadoop to be an enterprise viable data platform.  Hortonworks engineers and the broader Ambari community have been working hard on their latest release, and we’d like to highlight the exciting progress that’s been made to Ambari, a 100% open and free solution that delivers the features required from an enterprise-class management platform for Apache Hadoop.…

The Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) conveniently integrates numerous Big Data tools in the Hadoop ecosystem. As such, it provides cluster-oriented storage, processing, monitoring, and data integration services. HDP simplifies the deployment and management of a production Hadoop-based system.

In Hadoop, data is represented as key/value pairs. In HBase, data is represented as a collection of wide rows. These atomic structures makes global data processing (via MapReduce) and row-specific reading/writing (via HBase) simple.…

We had another amazing turn out on our Ambari webinar with Matt Foley a couple of weeks back. This series was meant to educate Hadoop enthusiasts and help them gain better understanding of the value of Hadoop and I think we’re on the right track. If you missed or would like a refresher from our last two webinars (Pig and Ambari) you can find the recording here: https://hortonworks.com/webinars/

We’re starting the third installment of the “Future of Apache Hadoop” series next Wednesday on “Scaling Apache Zookeeper to the Next Generation Applications” with Mahadev Konar (@mahadevkonar) Hortonworks co-founder and core contributor and PMC member of the Apache Zookeeper.…

I hope you had fun pigging out to Hadoop with Alan Gates. We had interesting questions during the webinar and as always, your participation in these discussions will help us understand different use cases of Apache Pig and the growing community around this project. The recording is now available on our webinar site.

For the next installation of “Future of Apache Hadoop” webinar series, I would like to introduce to you Matt Foley and Ambari. …

During the ‘Future of Apache Hadoop’ webinar series, Hortonworks founders and core committers will discuss the future of Hadoop and related projects including Apache Pig, Apache Ambari, Apache Zookeeper and Apache Hadoop YARN.

Apache Hadoop has rapidly evolved to become the leading platform for managing, processing and analyzing big data. Consequently there is a thirst for knowledge on the future direction for Hadoop related projects. The Hortonworks webinar series will feature core committers of the Apache projects discussing the essential components required in a Hadoop Platform, current advances in Apache Hadoop, relevant use-cases and best practices on how to get started with the open source platform.…

If you haven’t yet noticed, we have made Hortonworks Data Platform v1.0 available for download from our website. Previously, Hortonworks Data Platform was only available for evaluation for members of the Technology Preview Program or via our Virtual Sandbox (hosted on Amazon Web Services). Moving forward and effective immediately, Hortonworks Data Platform is available to the general public.

Hortonworks Data Platform is a 100% open source data management platform, built on Apache Hadoop.…

I wanted to take this opportunity to share some important news. Today, Hortonworks announced version 1.0 of the Hortonworks Data Platform, a 100% open source data management platform based on Apache Hadoop. We believe strongly that Apache Hadoop, and therefore, Hortonworks Data Platform, will become the foundation for the next generation enterprise data architecture, helping companies to load, store, process, manage and ultimately benefit from the growing volume and variety of data entering into, and flowing throughout their organizations.…

The following press release was issued by Hortonworks today.

Hortonworks Announces General Availability of Hortonworks Data Platform

Industry’s First Apache Hadoop-based Platform to Include Management, Monitoring and Comprehensive Data Services, Making Hadoop Easy to Consume and Use in Enterprise Environments

We just released the second video in the Hortonworks Executive Series. This one features Matt Foley, Test and Release Engineering Manager for Hortonworks.

In this video, Matt provides an overview of Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP), including a summary of the Apache Hadoop components included in the distribution and the testing processes involved in the release process. Matt also provides an overview of Apache Ambari, an open source project that is adding monitoring and management capabilities to Apache Hadoop.…
