The following is a guest post from Scott Gnau, President, Teradata Labs

I continue to be astonished by the evolution of Apache Hadoop, the software framework for large scale computing that has flourished thanks to a dynamic open source ecosystem. An army of contributors, including the smart engineers and contributors at Hortonworks, constantly refines Hadoop’s ability to manage massive amounts of data on computer clusters via MapReduce processing and the underlying Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS).…

We are excited to announce today that Hortonworks is bringing Windows-based Hadoop Operational Management functionality via Management Packs for System Center. These management packs will enable users to deploy, manage and monitor Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) for both Windows and Linux deployments. The new management packs for System Center will provide management and monitoring of Hadoop from a single System Center Operations Manager console, enabling customers to streamline operations and ensure quality of service levels.…

Today our partner Teradata announced a new offering called the Teradata Portfolio for Hadoop, which is built upon the 100% open source Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP). The new products and expanded partnership with Hortonworks offers customers a flexible choice of deployment offerings for Apache Hadoop from one of the most trusted vendors in the data management market worldwide.

Teradata have been helping their customers to get more value from their data for more than 30 years so this is a natural next step as organizations are looking to evolve their data architectures to capture net new data sources and create new applications.…

Today Concurrent announced that we have certified the Hortonworks Data Platform  against the Cascading application framework. As Hadoop adoption continues to grow more organizations are looking to take advantage of new data types and build new applications for the enterprise. By combining our enterprise-grade data platform and unparalleled growing ecosystem with the power, maturity and broad platform support of Concurrent’s Cascading application framework, we have now closed the modeling, development and production loop for all data-oriented applications.…

Over the past year, customers have told us they want to store all their data in one place and interact with it in multiple ways… they want to use Hadoop, but in order to do so, it needs to extend beyond batch.  It also needs to be interactive and real-time (among others).

This is the entire principle behind YARN, which together with others in the community, Arun Murthy and the team at Hortonworks have been working on for more than 5 years! …

This week we’re at the Red Hat Summit along with many others enjoying the great discussions within the community. As part of the summit, we are delighted to announce extended collaboration with Red Hat to continue to advance open source big data community projects.

Some details on the the three areas of collaboration forming the announcement:

  • Enhancing Apache Ambari to support the management of Hadoop-compatible file systems, such as GlusterFS. With this integration, users will be able to provision, deploy, monitor and manage alternative file systems with Ambari, further cementing Ambari’s position as the standard for Hadoop management.

Successful social advertising campaigns today take a special blend of data intelligence and automation – enabling businesses to link fluctuations in media and tactics to sales and revenues.  Those with better data relative to their competitors, will be positioned to outperform their peers tactically and, if used effectively, strategically.  At one of the fastest growing Advertising Technology startups, harnessing Big Data made big sense in a highly competitive business environment.

The Advertising Technology startup sells Social Ad Campaign management software and wanted its in-house engineering team to focus on its core product and to outsource certain areas of its non-core technology needs.…

Talend Open Studio for Big Data provides an intuitive set of tools that make dealing with data in the Hadoop world (and Hortonworks Data Platform in particular) a lot easier.  We often use the tools often to speed delivery of a proof of concept or to operationalize movement of data from sources like web logs and machine sensors to load HDFS.  It is simple to use and typically takes only minutes to perform something that once took hours in a script.…

Smartphones have transformed our daily lives. A key indicator of this trend is our increased spend on data plans versus voice. We are a new generation of people who are in a constant state of activity, communication, and community building wherever we go ─ including the couch in front of the television where we can multi-screen and multi-task!

What does this mean for the Mobile Telecom industry?  For one of the top five mobile phone service providers in the world, responsible for developing and managing advanced data services for European countries with data services including mobile internet access for various devices, mobile email, instant messaging, news, weather updates and traffic reports ─ it means as mobile data services grow in revenue, so does the need to monitor that contribution easily and accurately.…

Today we announced a strategic alliance with operational intelligence leader Splunk. We are excited to be strengthening our relationship with Splunk and expanding the Apache Hadoop ecosystem and we expect this to further drive open source innovation. Additionally this alliance is further proof of Hadoop’s maturation as a key component of the next generation enterprise architecture.

One of the key benefits of the partnership is that it enables organizations to easily take advantage of the massive scale out storage and processing capabilities of Apache Hadoop with Splunk Enterprise via Splunk Hadoop Connect, which easily and reliably moves data between Splunk Enterprise and Hadoop.…

Retailers today are faced with addressing the new behaviors of an evolving customer base by leveraging the changing landscape and its new dynamics.  Retail consumers online are sharing, friend validating, researching, learning and developing a point of view ─ offline they are touching, brand comparing and brand associating.  Retailers now more than ever before have to think in terms of “integrated commerce” and leverage Big Data for big results in the marketplace.…

Today, 94% of Hadoop users perform analytics on large volumes of data that were not possible before. How do they do it? Cool applications, that’s how.

You have seen various stats that indicate enterprises need better ways of making use of data but they bear repeating: The volume of business data worldwide, across all companies, doubles every 1.2 years, according to a study published by eBay in May, 2012. And market research firm IDC released a forecast showing the big data market may grow from $3.2 billion in 2010 to $16.9 billion in 2015.…

Some news from the UK as Yahoo! Hack Europe welcomed Hortonworks this past weekend in central London.  This two-day event sponsored by Yahoo! was focused on celebrating collaboration, learning and innovation using the worlds leading technologies.  Chris Harris, our local EMEA Solution Engineer was on hand to add to the discussions.  Partnering with Microsoft, we were able to showcase our HDP on the Azure platform.  This was a fantastic opportunity for the 350 delegates to be expose to both Azure and enterprise ready Hadoop provided as HDInsight Service.…

PORTLAND – The Rose city is a great place and this week it got even more interesting with the OpenStack Summit in town. I am more a data geek and very rarely do I venture down the stack into infrastructure, but wow, there is something cool going on with the OpenStack community.  I couldn’t help but to get wrapped up in the excitement.  Not only was the enthusiasm palpable, it was also very familiar.…
