The Hortonworks Blog

We opened our Budapest office back in April 2014 and since then, we’ve had new Hortonworkers join every month.  Home to our Cloudbreak, Ambari and Sustaining engineering teams, we have 43 people based in the office with more scheduled to join early 2017.  Over the last week, I’ve been fortunate to spend time with various […]

“The most damaging phrase in the language is, ‘It’s always been done that way.’” – Rear Admiral Grace Hopper, United States Navy This year Hortonworks was a Gold Sponsor at the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing Conference in Houston, Texas. This conference is named in honor of Grace Hopper, a pioneer in the […]

While we are out in Tokyo for the Hadoop Summit (#HS16Tokyo) this week, the Irish contingent of the Hortonworks’ international team also has had great cause for celebration – the official opening of our new office in Cork on Wednesday! At 12,499 square feet and a maximum capacity for 83 Hortonworkers (+ one regular guest, […]

Growing up in the Silicon Valley, the daughter of a mechanical engineer, I always wanted to work in technology. However, I never quite managed to get myself exposed to a tech field until I’d already developed a complex about my abilities in the STEM fields. I pivoted towards reading and writing – oriented professions and […]

Financial Services is arguably one of the most complex industry sectors in terms of customers, services and regulation. While there are obviously areas of overlap, the contrast between capital markets to private banking, retail banking to corporate banking and lending, or hedge funds to credit cards and payment networks is considerable. Last week, our general […]

June has got off to a great start – and not only because it seems like summer has arrived in London!  Yesterday, our team gathered in our International HQ a stone’s throw from Liverpool Street Station for a session with Mike Schiebel, our cyber security strategist, who is visiting from the west coast.  We have […]

It has been a couple of weeks since I joined Hortonworks through its Intern Program and wow, what a time it has been! For all the students out there who are interested in beginning a career in technology and data, I will be periodically blogging about my experiences as a Hortonworks intern. First up, I […]

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 […]
