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 are very excited to announce the Alpha release of the Hortonworks Data Platform 2.0 (HDP 2.0 Alpha).

HDP 2.0 Alpha is built around Apache Hadoop 2.0, which improves availability of HDFS with High Availability for the NameNode along with several performance and reliability enhancements. Apache Hadoop 2.0 also significantly advances data processing in the Hadoop ecosystem with the introduction of YARN, a generic resource-management and application framework to support MapReduce and other paradigms such as real-time processing and graph processing.…

Hortonworks Data Platform 1.1 Brings Expanded High Availability and Streaming Data Capture, Easier Integration with Existing Tools to Improve Enterprise Reliability and Performance of Apache Hadoop

It is exactly three months to the day that Hortonworks Data Platform version 1.0 was announced. A lot has happened since that day…

Sure you can write custom scripts to perform a load, but that is hardly repeatable and not viable in the long term.…
