The Hortonworks Blog

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, we are OPEN, we are PUBLIC and we are PROUD.  Hortonworks Data Platform is 100% open source. Hortonworks Data Flow is 100% open source. Apache Metron, the incubating cybersecurity effort Hortonworks is stewarding, is 100% open source. Our strategy remains committed to 100% open, our products […]

I had the pleasure to speak at Spark Summit in New York today about accelerating the adoption of Spark by mainstream enterprises. I had to admit at the beginning of my talk that I’m an “open source addict” — over the past 12 years I’ve been blessed to have called JBoss, Red Hat, SpringSource, and Hortonworks […]

Hortonworks has achieved quite a bit of success with online dating. Personally, I haven’t just yet, but hey it warms my heart to think about all those that we’ve helped bring together. Valentine’s Day is upon us and so I wanted to launch this Cupid’s arrow with a missive about how Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) […]

It was 10 years ago today (Feb 2) that my first patch (https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/NUTCH-197) went into the code that two days later became Hadoop (https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-1). I had been working on Yahoo Search’s WebMap, which was the back end that analyzed the web for the search engine.  We had been working on a C++ implementation of GFS and MapReduce, but […]

Hello everyone and welcome to the start of my blogging adventure. I’m Mike Schiebel, Cybersecurity Strategist at Hortonworks where I’m focused on cybersecurity to inject enterprise level security features into the Hadoop ecosystem and provide input into the Apache Metron open source project.  I figured introductions are in order, to explain the where and why […]

Santa will be busy this year. On December 24th he’s scheduled to deliver presents to billions of children globally. Buddy and the Keeblers will be working overtime to meet the demand, and Santa has called in temp work from Legolas and Dobby. There’s little doubt that Santa is a master of lean manufacturing, but there’s […]

In September, Hortonworks partnered with ManTech and B23 to foster a vibrant open community to accelerate the development of OpenSOC. In December we additionally partnered with Rackspace Managed Security and submitted OpenSOC to the Apache Incubator as a podling under the name of Apache Metron. A decision to rename the project was made to represent […]

An interesting and atypical thing is happening in Healthcare. Leading data driven organizations are not simply looking to share their Hadoop experiences, successes, use cases, and best practices … but more than ever before, they are embracing the opportunity to share their experiences outside their organizations, in a style that resembles the open source community […]

Deploying a lock-in free data platform is critical for an enterprise. By this, we mean using a non-proprietary code and implementing interoperability to eliminate the risk of being dependent on a single vendor for your current or future needs. Over two thirds of respondents to our survey agree that maintaining freedom of choice was a […]

As the US nears its holiday of giving thanks, Hortonworks is reflecting on open and all the bounty it brings. Hortonworks philosophy has always been predicated on an open approach. Open innovation, open community, open development, open delivery…a fully open source business. Why open? Because real innovation happens not in isolation but in collaboration where […]

“It’s all about Hortonworks company vision, 100% open source and enterprise support.” Source: TechValidate TVID 8A7-EFF-21C Hortonworks’ customer experience survey shows that our community innovation strategy is validated by our customers, with more than two-thirds of those who responded to the survey said they value community innovation Hortonworks has been dedicated to 100% open community […]

After receiving Teradata’s EPIC award recognition for Big Data […]

Since our founding in mid-2011, our vision for Hadoop has been that “half the world’s data will be processed by Hadoop”. With that long-term vision in mind, we focus on the mission to establish Hadoop as the foundational technology of the modern enterprise data architecture that unlocks a whole new class of data-driven applications that […]

This article originally appeared at Opensource.com and is reproduced here. There are rapidly growing feature set, high commit rates, and code contributions happening across the globe to Apache Hadoop and related Apache Software Foundation projects. However, the number of woman developers, committers, and Project Management Committee (PMC) members in this vast and diversified ecosystem are really diminutive. For the Hadoop project […]
