Executive Video Series: Overview of Hortonworks Data Platform

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.

If you are interested in learning more about Hortonworks technology, please visit the HDP page or attend one of the live or on-demand Webinars. Even better, consider attending the Hadoop Summit conference in June, where you will have a chance to learn from many of the core Apache Hadoop developers and other community leaders. You should also consider attending a Hortonworks training class, either in conjunction with Hadoop Summit or at another time and location more convenient to your schedule.
