MongoDB-Hadoop Connector Certified on Hortonworks HDP 2.1

MongoDB connects to Apache Hadoop and Hortonworks data platform

MongoDB is an open-source NoSQL database, used by companies of all sizes, across all industries and for a wide variety of applications. MongoDB – the company – is a Hortonworks Certified Technology Partner.

Sheena Badani, Director of Business Development at MongoDB, talks about the value of obtaining HDP 2.1 certification.


MongoDB is thrilled to announce the certification of the MongoDB Hadoop Connector on Hortonworks latest release HDP 2.1.  Customers now have validation from both MongoDB, Inc. and Hortonworks that the connector is a customer-friendly way to integrate your operational and analytical datastores.  This solidifies the already existing partnership between MongoDB and Hortonworks.

MongoDB and Apache Hadoop are complementary technologies.  MongoDB is the real-time operational database which powers modern day applications.  Apache Hadoop is for rich analysis that can be conducted on data that originated from MongoDB, in addition to other data sources. Through the integration live, operational data from MongoDB can be snapshotted into Hortonworks’ Apache Hadoop-based data lake. The data can be analyzed and then be passed back to MongoDB to improve the customer experience, e.g., displaying personalized content for online shoppers.


What does it mean to be certified? The MongoDB Hadoop Connector was reviewed by Hortonworks’ engineers for architectural best practices, validated against a comprehensive suite of integration test cases, benchmarked for scale under varied workloads, and comprehensively documented.  To cut to the chase, it works and it works great.

Get started today by reading our MongoDB Hadoop Connector documentation.  Also read more about MongoDB and Hadoop on our website.  Additionally, watch our free recorded webinar “MongoDB and Hadoop – Essential Tools for Your Big Data Playbook.”

We are excited to enable developers to take their Big Data, make sense of it, and improve customer experience.  Look for more to come from MongoDB and Hortonworks.  This is just the beginning.
