The Hortonworks Blog

We are excited to announce an expansion of our relationship with open source leader Red Hat to a deeper more strategic alliance. The main goal is to help organizations adopt enterprise Apache Hadoop more quickly. This is a natural progression of our relationship with Red Hat because we are so closely aligned around a strategy of innovating in the open and applying enterprise rigor to open source software thereby de-risking it for the enterprise.…

In this post, we will explore how to quickly and easily spin up our own VM with Vagrant and Apache Ambari. Vagrant is very popular with developers as it lets one mirror the production environment in a VM while staying with all the IDEs and tools in the comfort of the host OS.

If you’re just looking to get started with Hadoop in a VM, then you can simply download the Hortonworks Sandbox.…

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 developerscommitters, and Project Management Committee (PMC) members in this vast and diversified ecosystem are really diminutive. For the Hadoop project alone, only 5% out of 84 committers are women; and this has been the case for over the past 2 years.…

This guest post from Steve Ratay, Viewpoint Architect, Teradata Corporation

Teradata’s Unified Data Architecture is a powerful combination of the Teradata Enterprise Data Warehouse, the Aster Discovery Platform, Apache Hadoop (via the Hortonworks Data Platform) and Teradata Enterprise Management tools in a single architecture. 

If you are Teradata user managing an Enterprise Data Warehouse or Data Discovery platform, chances are that you are using Teradata Viewpoint, a monitoring and management platform for Teradata Systems. …

I recently sat down with Mahadev Konar and Jeff Sposetti to discuss Apache Ambari v1.4.1. Ambari 1.4.1 is a single framework to provision, manage and monitor clusters based on the Hadoop 2 stack, with YARN and NameNode HA on HDFS.

Mahadev is one of the original architects of Apache Hadoop, a co-founder of Hortonworks, and a committer on Apache Ambari and Apache ZooKeeper. Jeff is the Hortonworks product manager focused on Apache Ambari and Apache Falcon.…

In this post, we’ll walk through the process of deploying an Apache Hadoop 2 cluster on the EC2 cloud service offered by Amazon Web Services (AWS), using Hortonworks Data Platform.

Both EC2 and HDP offer many knobs and buttons to cater to your specific, performance, security, cost, data size, data protection and other requirements. I will not discuss most of these options in this blog as the goal is to walk through one particular path of deployment to get started.…

Xplenty is a Hortonworks Technology Partner offering Hadoop as a service. We invited Yaniv Mor, Co-founder and CEO of Xplenty to be our guest blogger today sharing his views on HDP and Hadoop. 

We founded Xplenty to make Apache Hadoop easier. A lot easier. We believe Hadoop’s big data revolution should be available for companies of all sizes and intuitive for everyone to use. Whether it’s designing data­flows, setting up clusters, or managing and monitoring them, our platform as a service makes it happen, code­free.…

Apache Accumulo is gaining momentum in markets such as government, financial services and health care for its enhanced security and performance. Hortonworks has a long history with this technology and has multiple committers to the Accumulo project on staff – at least one of whom literally helped to write the book on Accumulo. This has enabled Hortonworks to provide enterprise support for Accumulo within the Hortonworks Data Platform for some time now.…

On Feb 8th and 9th, Hortonworks, Microsoft and Elastacloud will be hosting a hackathon at the Microsoft Campus in Mountain View, CA. Whether you’re a newbie or ninja, developer or scientist, we’d love to see you there. Register here.

The focus of the hackathon will be city datasets. For instance, we’ll be drawing on datasets from San Francisco that will measure things like:

  • Pedestrian safety: where accidents occur, how they occur and who has caused them.

I recently sat down with Himanshu Bari to discuss how Apache Ambari will serve as the single point of management for Hadoop 2 clusters integrated with Apache Storm and its real-time, streaming event processing.

Himanshu discusses Apache Storm’s five key benefits and how those will add to the power and stability of a Hadoop 2 stack, providing analysis of huge data flows from the second data is created and then for decades of historical analysis of that data stored in HDFS.…

We’re kicking off 2014 with an evolution to our Modern Data Architecture webinar series. Last year we focused on how your existing technologies integrate with Apache Hadoop. This year we will focus on use cases for how Hadoop and your existing technologies are being used to get real value in the enterprise. Join Hortonworks, along with Microsoft, Actian, Splunk and others as we continue our journey on delivering Apache Hadoop as an Enterprise Data Platform.…

This guest blog post is from Syncsort, a Hortonworks Technology Partner and certified on HDP 2.0, by Keith Kohl, Director, Product Management, Syncsort (@keithkohl)

Several years ago, Syncsort set on a journey to contribute to the Apache Hadoop projects to open and extend Hadoop, and specifically the MapReduce processing framework.  One of the contributions was to open the sort – both map side sort and reduce side – and to make it pluggable. …

I recently sat down with Devaraj Das and Carter Shanklin to discuss the dramatic improvements delivered in Apache HBase version 0.96 included in HDP 2.0.

Now HBase runs on Windows and (whether on Linux or Windows) it recovers from failures much more quickly, with dramatic improvements in mean time to recovery (MTTR).

Devaraj is one of the original architects of Apache Hadoop and Carter is the Hortonworks product manager focused on HBase.…

This guest post from Simon Elliston Ball, Head of Big Data at Red Gate and all round top bloke. 

Hadoop is a great place to keep a lot of data. The data-lake, the data-hub and the data platform;  it’s all about the data. So how do you manage that data? How do you get data in? How do you get results out? How do you get at the logs buried somewhere deep in HDFS?…

Today, we are excited to announce the agenda for Hadoop Summit Europe 2014.  We welcome you to check it out now and hopefully start planning you trip to Amsterdam now!

The call for abstracts for Hadoop Summit Europe was open for just over two months and we received an unbelievable 354 submissions.  Wow!  Further, as we read through them, the quality was amazing.  We quickly surmised that the show was going to be great, but the selection process was going to rough.…
